I guess it defines my life experience in many ways. I especially like the "disarm you with a smile" lyrics. I feel like this song represents my young childhood, and how it was robbed from me. I can only really think back and remember terrible things that occurred to me, and have shaped me into the person I am today. Throughout it all I've learned to smile, carry on, and let go of grudges. I've become a better person because of it, and glad things turned out the way they did.
There are so many representing different decades and eras of my life it would be difficult to know where to begin.
This one is contemporary but reminds me a lot of how it 'felt' being a teenager in the early 1960s. During school months I was away but during the summer months I was back home in a very small town. There was a group of farm boys I ran around with, especially on hot summer nights. Before we were old enough to have cars we'd run the small town roads and fields till 2AM. A couple years later we'd hop in someone's car and just drive around endlessly with the windows rolled down, listening to WAKY (wacky radio). Sometimes when it was really hot we'd go skinny dipping in one of the local ponds. Sometimes we'd go hear a local rock band in a neighboring town. By the time we were in our early 20s we'd all moved on. Some married, some drafted never to come back from Vietnam, two dead from suicide.
