What are you listening to?

Pale to the mountains my existence seems
Sad as the cry of my unanswered dreams
Long have I waited for time to make clear
All of the reasons that I must be here
But I won't care if you are there
Make us all aware
Drawn by the river, we watch as it flows
Wanting to taste of the wisdom it holds
Knowing that somewhere our fortunes we'll find
But fortunes are something we hold in our minds
We could share all that's there
Make us all aware
Seeking an answer yet harboring fear
The day that it comes, I'll no longer be here
But I won't care if you are there
I won't care
Make us all... oh
I won't care
Make us all aware

It was Cinco de Mayo
Pillow case on his head
No more breathing time
An ambulance sped
Sped 'round ever corner
Calling out his name
Shot a rabbit from the back seat window
Sat and watched the summer corn grow
Ate ice cream in a desert dream
And got lost in father's singing
Too hot inside
Too hot outside
Lazy days when I said let's go for a ride
We'll sail on Spirit Lake
Me, my pappy, and his lemonade
Tim and Tina were my parents' names
They got engaged
They were inflamed
Seduced by the light of butterflies
How they shimmer, how they glimmer
Those butterflies
We seven kids
We almost died
Nearly put to death
By lightening strikes
Instead there was hot, pink
Flashes in the sky
We climbed the rocks, in snow and rain
In search of magic powers
To heal our mother's pain
I just treated myself to Quadrophenia by The Who, when my intention was to do Christmas shopping:lol:. I haven't listened to this record since 1997, amazing. I'd forgotten how good a record it is.

A trio of songs musing on the murky territories of the mind, from Neil Young and The Who. Along with my books, music helps to keep me sane in this world. It all began with rock music in the late 70's then snowballed from there. A wonderful serendipitous journey ever since.

"Those were the days..." - Carroll O'Connor, Jean Stapleton
(Written by Lee Adams (lyrics) and Charles Strouse (music).)

Boy the way Glen Miller played.
Songs that made the hit parade.
Guys like us we had it made.
Those were the days.

And you knew who you were then,
Girls were girls and men were men,
Mister we could use a man Like Herbert Hoover again.

Didn't need no welfare state,
Everybody pulled his weight.
Gee, our old LaSalle ran great.
Those were the days!
Sometimes we hear songs that sound better in another performer's version, sometimes there are different reasons that completely change the context of the original song.

In this case I couldn't resist with this surreal version of Quenn's song. "I want to be free" presented to Kim Jong Un and his military apparatus
"I Want To Break Free" is a single by British rock band, released on April 22, 1984. The song was written by bassist John Deacon. The song was released on the album "The Works".
