Musical Monday - Jackson Browne, Farther On

I have always loved Jackson Browne's music and still rate a concert he gave here in Melbourne around 1979 as the best I have ever seen. The opening verse of this song says -

In my early years I hid my tears
And passed my days alone
Adrift on an ocean of loneliness
My dreams like nets were thrown
To catch the love that Id heard of
In books and films and songs
Now theres a world of illusion and fantasy
In the place where the real world belongs

You can view the full lyrics here, but in the meantime just enjoy the music.

Hi Loz! I do not think the link is working anymore but thank you for reminding me about a long-forgotten artist and song. It is refreshing to become reacquainted with him again.

Have fun!

I do am a bif fan of both he and Carly. However, I think when you pay attention to both of them even as a team their marriage must have been an unhappy relationship. I don't doubt that they were in love...but, their lyrics always have an edge to them where love is concerned. Great post!

Dan - it seems ok now I think

Shinade - I think you may be getting mixed up with James Taylor - same era, different wives.

Mariano - thanks for the comment but like I said last time I don't read Spanish; or is it Portugese?

Jodi - you're welcome and of course I'll take the invite to cre8buzz

Hi Loz, thanks for the kind words you left me, the song made me smile. That was real emotion and feeling..deep and much for what we hear now..not the same.

Great memories
