Songs about Getting A Bit Old

ITT: songs about getting a bit old and what they mean.

The Fall: 50 Year-old Man


What it means: Who really gives a shit about how old you are? Let’s make some noise.

Pile: Firewood (here in a live session)


What it means: I’m comfortable getting older, because being youthful always had its problems. Anyway, the fire is still burning.

I post this song everywhere around my birthday every year.

I find it really haunting.

I love how broken he looks in the cover picture too.

(Makes me feel very old that this is a song about getting old, written by a 27-year old :grimacing:)

Perfect!

Terminus by Half Man Half Biscuit is ludicrously sad. “Grey falls on the green, as I try and get used to ‘me’ and not ‘us’…” gets me every time.

Meaning: I am getting on a bit, but I am not actually dead yet. My voice is fucked though.
