It’s Music Monday, and today’s theme over at Dolly’s is from Cathy of Curious As A Cathy, as she’s the honorary conductor aboard the music train this month – and it’s songs about being a grandparent or growing old.
Since I haven’t yet made it to grandmahood, I’ll be posting selections about growing old. And this week, I’ve got new wave and classic rock selections I hope you’ll enjoy!
Talking Heads – “Once In A Lifetime”
I remember being so enthralled by David Byrne’s weirdness!
Bog Seger – “Against The Wind”
I suppose this will make it onto a few lists and I usually try to steer clear of that, but not this time. Bob Seger was one of my Dad’s favorite musicians, and whenever I hear ANY song by Bob Seger (regardless of what the song is about) I always think of him and smile. I was around 9-10, he’d come get me on Friday evenings, and we’d listen to Against The Wind (the album). When I read that this week’s theme was about being a grandparent or growing old, I immediately thought of this song. And thought of my Dad, as I’ve been doing a lot lately. And smiled. And maybe cried a little bit, too.
What songs do YOU love about being a grandparent, or growing old?
