I like it when there are time jumps in songs, or when songs tell a story that lasts a long time.
like this drive by truckers song where he’s singing about his ancestors moving to america and then he sings about meeting his wife.
or this paul kelly song, where a boy grows up and has a child and its heartbreaking
or this paul kelly song
or that bit in bradman by paul kelly where he says
now shadows they grow longer and there’s so mush more yet to be told
but we’re not getting any younger, so let the part tell the whole
paul kelly does it a lot. drive by truckers do it a lot too.
makes me cry.
