Thursday Inspiration #119 Seasons in the Sun

Jim Adams aka NEWEPICAUTHOR is the host of Thursday Inspiration

Respond to this challenge, by either by using the prompt word wine, or going with the above picture, or by means of the song ‘Seasons in the Sun’, or by going with another song by Terry Jacks


I first listened to this song, Seasons in the sun, when I was in school, 6-7th grade. It was such a sad song yet for some reason it didn’t depress the listener. Even now, I love to hear it play. There were many other favorites from that era.

Country roads take me home, summer wine, and many like them. These were songs where the lyrics were simple, yet powerful. For us, non-English speaking people, these songs were easy to understand and sing along.

I struggle with modern-day songs, especially rap songs, where they sing so fast that I cannot for the life of me follow them, and singing along is out of the question.

        1. Haha! Yup, even our kids when they start reading and writing Urdu are confused. It’s not like English that each alphabet reta it’s original shape even in joined handwriting. In Urdu, the alphabets change shape according to where they are used. It’s written form I’d derived from Arabic. But it’s a wonderful language, with a wealth of expression!

  1. I totally get that with music. I love music, and love to listen to the words along with the rhythm of the music. So inspirational. I also get understanding the lyrics; there are actually a lot of songs that I like, where I have to listen to them again and again to get the language; and there are also some, that I still don’t understand…Thanks for sharing, Sadje.

    1. Thanks Jeff. As I said earlier, some rap songs and when the singer is too fast with delivery, they just fly over my head. I love songs where I can understand the lyrics and appreciate their meanings.

  2. I completely get what you mean about trying to understand some lyrics especially rap songs. Even with English being my native tongue I still dont understand a lot of them! Seasons In The Sun is one of my favorites from the past!
