Things I (Re)Learned Today From Classic Rock

As I was reading an article about the Rolling Stones postponing their European concert dates due to Keith Richards' head injuries, I heard the following lyric on the XM classic rock station:

It's better to burn out than fade away.
Neil Young

I think Keith and the boys have taken that one to heart.

The other lyric I heard today which everyone should take to heart:

You see, you can't please everyone, so you've got to please yourself.

Ricky Nelson

Some of my favorite new lyrics.
"Life ain't always beautiful but its a beautiful ride"

"If you think you're going through hell, if you hurry you can get out before the Devil ever knows you were there"

Baby Sis

Ricky has the right idea, and a I try, but I find the rest of the world simply isn't cooperating at times...

Songwriters are the saviours of the world....except Lucinds Williams, who can drive people to suicide like lemmings with her beautiful but intensely gloomy work. I need the wisdom of "Hounddog" today.

Baby Sis - I like that second one!

Grokodile - That's true. Try to ignore them.

Lorna - Ah, yes, the wisdom of Hounddog!
