I think you know what I mean....Those concerts that were just magic, the songs that meant so much.

Maybe it's just me and that bittersweet longing for yesterday.

Certainly it's not just you, Guest TC. It's all of us Olde Fartes. "The songs that meant so much" is a good grand-unification phrase; pulls in everything & everyone on the waterfront. Which was a great movie btw. Ah, youth. / But *now* look, you've gone & made me nostalgic for the very beverage which bears your name. Hadn't thought of tom collins in many a year. (*Michael* Collins, yes.)

For I spent all me tin
With the lassies drinkin' gin
Far across the western ocean I must wander.

Discovery doesn't hold up well with repetition. There are kids nineteen, twenty years who are experiencing the excitement of something that is fresh and new to them, right now. But, don't feel bad. As a friend of mine wisely says, "You're only young once, but you can be immature forever." :-)

Ah yes, nostalgia. In another thread, someone tried to compare punk rock to folk for longevity, It's impossible to say, but, I have a hard time picturing grunge or punk being around as long as folk. Can't you just picture the kids of today in 30 years, all standing around the old upright synthezer trying to remember two words from Twisted Sister?

Despite years of having been converted to folkism, the only music that makes me nostalgic is that of the Allman Brothers Band from the days before Duane Allman was killed. When Berry Oakley's bass solo on Mountain Jam wraps up and Duane comes back in with that hair-raising slide guitar work I still can't keep from jumping up and down just like at their concerts thirty years ago. In fact, I think I'll go listen to it right now.

Bye y'all.

Second the "hee hee hee's" for kendall (still got them ole *giggles*, eh, HippieChick? Far farkin' out. "We're tryna legalize Pot; but we fer-got where we put the Petitions, maaaaan." - George Carlin). And, I move a huge HAW HAW HAW HAW for Bill D! Now in myyyyyy day Sonny, we never looked back! Nosirree! WUTsa matter wit' Kids TOOOO-day!?

You go listen, BWL (just don't actually *Bee* Dubya, OK?); I'll do the jump-up-and-down, for auld lang syne. Well, twice or thrice maybe. Gittin' too old fer this shite...Now *meee*, of course, I get all lark-in-the-morning-dewey-eyed t'inkin' o' me first Clancy Brothers & Tommy Makem concert. 1967, Warshington Dee See. Yessirree. 'Course, we didn't jump-up-and-down: thin veneer of civilization upon us. Plus, wrong beat entirely. But bedad wasn't we roarin' out of us when Tommy (either Tommy) did shout "An' if the fella sittin' next t' yez looks at ye funny, belt 'im! Even if she's a nun! *Especially* if she's a nun!!"
