Dating song boys movie lyrics nashville tn online dating
Little voice inside my head said, "Don't Look back; you can never look back." Thought I knew what love was,.did I know.
Those days are gone forever; I should just let 'em go but,..."And that lead guitar and them percussions, great, great, song.
I can almost connect each line of the lyrics to something in my teenage years.
To me the song is very emotional, and it's also very melancolic and in a way sad...
On another level, the song is about the 60s hippies growing up to be 80s yuppies. In at least one interview ( after the breakup, Glenn Frey referred to the Eagles as a "summer band." And the Eagle members were collectively known as "the boys" to people associated with their music's business side.
I believe this song is Don Henley's tribute to his broken relationship with Frey, with a message of hope that it can be repaired (I'm gonna get you back) and he can be successful on his own (gonna show you what I'm made of).
I wish I could meet Don Henley once, and hear what he has to say about the song :)I remember reading a long time ago that Don Henley was an English major at college in Texas before he moved to California.
It may be possible that he was inspired to write this song from a poem by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas called "I See the Boys of Summer''.
The way things use to be on the carefree days of summer.
If I had to choose to have just one song in my album Collection for the rest of my life, it would be "Boys of Summer". I love the sound, the production, the voice and of course the lyrics!
I've heard many versions of the song, and some are good, but the noone comes close to the original!
Most people say that Bob Dylan was the greatest song-writer of all time but Don, I can tell you that you are as great as Bob Dylan ever was. I mean I always liked it but couldn't put a finger on it. Engraved in my memory since I was 6 years old on the Jersey Shore with my parents watching it on tv. This song was in a movie and I can't remember what.
Recently I play it over and over and can't get enough of it. Being someone about to turn 31 and thinking back to my 20s, girls I dated, sigh... My husband thinks it's "Top Gun" but I don't think it is.
On another level, this song is also about getting older and letting go of youth. he can see her walking though the parking lot or the shake down. It's a message that we should keep the child in us so we can never forget the adventures we used to create for ourselves. this song is so melancholic and always brings on that deep sadness when you look back on the fun of younger years, longing for those days but knowing that you can never be there again. A couple of years before the song was written, Don gave an interview about the Eagles break-up to a magazine; the journalist titled it "Goodbye to the Boys of Summer." That probably inspired the song's title.
