I think we both understand each others lives, even though they we're and are lived very differently, there's a connection from one to the other through the words we write revealing who we really are.

Stone Walls do not a Prison make,

Nor Iron bars a Cage;

Minds innocent and quiet take

That for an Hermitage.

forgot to say thank you Mr Lovelace

Ooooh -- So.. I have no idea where I found Van der Graaf Generator , but if you enjoyed Jethro Tull's A Passion Play then I believe you might fancy, it's an epic for a record, but eh, both sides of itnow: Godbluff

I could write a bit of a dissertation based on the lyrics, which I won't (here, but maybe in 'Meanderings) but will note that everything about youth in this song by Bob Seger is positive

This is undeniably a great rock song. But Iíve always been disappointed in the second verse (the two stanzas after the first chorus).

The first verse into the chorus is soooo right, perfect, that it seems like Bob just phoned in the second verse.

This song could have been more than it is.

I looked up the lyrics and tend to disagree with you. I think Seger was trying to reflect a disappointment in how life went on.

Lately I have been listening to a marvellously obscure concert by the most marvellous, and obscure artist I have ever heard.

Another classic. George was a precious wonder of those buggies.

Sigur Ros are amazing. Wish I had heard of them long before I did.

I got stuck on this song for a couple of days after watching King Arthur. Movie was so so, but the song is pretty cool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGnfFW-vyzU
