I remember the good old days,
Stayed up all night gettin' crazed.
Then the money was not so good,
But we still did the best we could.
Ooh baby, that's hard to changeOh, yes... "sooner or later it all gets real." Truer words, and all that. "Walk On" is from "On the Beach," one of Neil's more obscure and least successful albums (in sales terms), yet that album is one of my favorites and one I sorely miss... seeing as how I've never bought the CD to replace the vinyl copy that's in SN2's custody. And then there's this, from the same album (a live version):
I can't tell them how to feel.
Some get stoned, some get strange,
But sooner or later it all gets real.
The music in "For the Turnstiles"... and I'm speaking of the guitar riffs... is some of the best stuff Neil ever did, IMHO. YMMV as ever, Gentle Reader. And now it's back outside to soak up what remains of this Fall afternoon's fading sunshine.
