What songs that were nice when you were younger but became more profound to you
Posted by: pRICE cUBE

Heard this on the radio recently and it hit me like a ton of bricks for some reason. It is much more profound to me than when I heard it in my younger days.



Don Henley The End of The Innocence [www.youtube.com]

Remember when the days were long
And rolled beneath a deep blue sky
Didn't have a care in the world
With mommy and daddy standing by
When "happily ever after" fails
And we've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers dwell on small details
Since daddy had to fly
Oh, but I know a place where we can go
Still untouched by man
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
And the tall grass waves in the wind
You can lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence
O' beautiful, for spacious skies
But now those skies are threatening
They're beating plowshares into swords
For this tired old man that we elected king
Armchair warriors often fail
And they've been poisoned by these fairy tales
The lawyers clean up all details
Since daddy had to lie
Oh, but I know a place where we can go
And wash away this sin
We'll sit and watch the clouds roll by
The tall grass waves in the wind
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair spill all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence
Who knows how long this will last
Now we've come so far, so fast
But somewhere back there in the dust
That same small town in each of us
I need to remember this
So baby, give me just one kiss
And let me take a long last look
Before we say good bye
Just lay your head back on the ground
And let your hair fall all around me
Offer up your best defense
But this is the end
This is the end of the innocence

pRICE,

Cats in the Crade, Harry Chapin

Father and Son, Cat Stevens

One, Metallica

Inmate 4859, Sabaton

I'm including the Sabaton song because it had a huge impact on me the first time I heard it six years ago and it continues to do so now.

One



U2's One is what I am assuming you are referring to. Incredible song, in my top 5 all time.

The energy of lot of early Beatles songs still affect me because they remind me of a much more carefree, exuberant time.

The Beatles’ “Dear Prudence,” after hearing what it’s really about (Mia Farrow’s sister took transcendental meditation in India very seriously, and wouldn’t come out to play with the others. Worried about her, John would sing outside her abode, trying to bring her out.

A lot of Steely Dan's more world-weary songs, which is crazy because they were all written when Fagan and Becker were in their 20's.

Funny that this started with a Don Henley song, as his stuff is generally a counter-example for me. I was really impressed with him as a teenager, but much less so as I aged and developed better Pretentiousness filters...

pRICE,

Just wondering why you'd think my choice of One was for the song by U2 instead of by Metallica, which I listed next to the song name in my post. Seems odd that you'd ignore what I placed in the post and assume I meant a different band.

I loved Metallica as a teen, but I thought "One" and the entire Justice for All album kinda pretentious. I get the song as a meditation on PTSD.

Loved U2's "One" as well, came out just as I met the girl I would marry, and it hurt more as that too young marriage fell apart...
Same for "End of the Innocence"

I was shopping with my mom and we saw an Elvis Gospel album, I bought it for her. I always liked Elvis, she was a 50's teeny bopper. We listened to "Peace In The Valley" together. She Passed Away about year later on Oct 5, and I listen to this song every year today and her birthday.
[youtu.be]

I liked "I Want to Tell You" by the Beatles as a teenager, but when I fell in love with my first wife, and was so confused by it..the song made more sense.

I loved NIN's "Hurt" but I heard Cash's version right as I lost a child hood friend to an OD, I was driving with my teen daughter, and I had to pull over and broke down crying.

I thought I could understand Nick Cave's "Faraway So Close" but after my mother passed, I REALLY understood it.
[youtu.be]
Empty out your pockets, toss the lot upon the floor
All those treasures, my friend
You don't need them anymore
Your days are all through dying
They gave all their ghosts away
So kiss close all your wounds and call living life a day
For the planets gravitate around you
And the stars shower down around you
And the angels in heaven adore you
And the saints all stand and applaud you
So faraway
So faraway and yet so close
Say farewell to the passing of the years
Though all your sweet goodbyes will fall upon deaf ears
Kiss so softly the mouths of the ones you love
Beneath the September moon and the heavens above
And the world will turn without you
And history will soon forget about you
But the heavens they will reward you
And the saints will be there to escort you
So faraway
So faraway and yet so close

A had my attention diverted to another screen and didn't see Metallica. My brain blocked out everything after One. My apologies.

Rolando,

Definitely not just PTSD. It covers many more topics. PTSD. War (in general). Landmines as horrible weapons of war. Living in a crippled body. Right to death. You name it.

I know a few Iraq and Afghan war vets my age (I'm not one myself)...that's how we relate to it.

Just the first two songs that came to mind.

In recent years and recent viewings, the final scene of Wagner's Siegfried is extraordinary.

Listening after so many years to the protest songs of Phil Ochs.

We Five and Chad and Jeremy were strong at the time and still good.

I stayed up late one night and watched the documentary about country music, and it was interesting to see Roger Miller after hearing his "Dang Me" and others mainly on car radios. The Patsy Cline songs still resonate (pun intended).

Mahler's 4th symphony is amazing.

As my wife and I were about to get to the golf course on Sunday, The Long and Winding Road (The Beatles) played. Then 10 min later a friend stood a bit too far in front of me on the tee box. I told him that my drives sometimes are reflected in that song; he moved back and out of harm's way!

Edit: forgot how to spell Beatles!
