Hi I've just put together a string of well known songs to tell a story. What do you think? Can anyone add a mid life or retirement medley to the collection? Anyone got any others. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ PATCHES B.B King version I was born and raised down in Alabama on a farm way back up in the woods .............. Now the years have passed And everybody's grown Mama's been livin' In a brand new home Lord knows it took A lot of sweat and tears And my daddy's voice To help us through the years GUITAR MAN Elvis Presley Well, I quit my job down at the car wash, Left my mama a goodbye note, By sundown Id left kingston, With my guitar under my coat, FAST CAR Tracey Chapman You got a fast car And I got a job that pays all our bills You stay out drinking late at the bar See more of your friends than you do of your kids I'd always hoped for better Thought maybe together you and me would find it BY THE TIME I GET TO PHEONIX Glen Campbell By the time I get to Phoenix, she'll be rising. She'll find the note I left hangin' on her door IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME Yvonne Fair Darling, darling You made a promise that we'd never part & then you turned around & broke my heart Now you're standing there saying 'I do' Holding hands with somebody new BEE GEES Massachusetts Feel I'm goin' back to Massachusetts, Something's telling me I must go home. And the lights all went out in Massachusetts The day I left her standing on her own IN THE GHETTO Elvis Presley As the snow flies On a cold and gray chicago mornin A poor little baby child is born In the ghetto. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Alan

Hi Brian The idea is to find a string of songs (or more precisely relevant lines) and make them into a continuing story ,like above. It needn't be a human life cycle theme. It could be any theme. Or , just continue on from above. The guy is moving thro his younger years : marrying (or not) has children. Next middle age Middle age song : The Taxman ,by the Beatles Another middle age song . The Living Years ,by Mike and the Mechanics. Older years. Grandad by Clive Dunn , definately or Ernie , The Fastest Milkman in the West by Benny Hill. Or to continue the thread ,thro middle age (well 37 years) from the feminine aspect could be: The Ballad of Lucy Jordan , Marianne Faithful Hope this helps. I look forward to your contribution ! Alan
