Maybe I will get these done tonight! I was working too hard on other things and forgot about posting. Sorry about that. Here's my next song on the Jackson Browne list. #4: These Days If this song was a bunch of "blah blah blah"s but still contained the line, "My friend, don't confront me with my failures, I had not forgotten them," it would still be this high on the list. I love that line. That's a line that should be on bumper stickers, inspirational posters, t-shirts, you name it, it should be there. Jackson Browne wrote this song when he was sixteen years old. Think about that: the above-quoted line is pretty heady stuff for a 16-year-old. Before he recorded it Nico (of Andy Warhol and Velvet Underground fame) had done it. He finally recorded it himself on his second album. Since then it's been one of my favorites. May we all not confront others with their failures. They have not forgotten them. These Days Written by Jackson Browne From For Everyman, 1973 Here's a great version with Jackson and David Lindley. The video is bad but the audio is sterling:
