Friday Five: Eighteen

Happy New Year! We’re 18 years into the 21st century. I guess that means we’re all grown up.

5. “I’ve Lived My Life” (Dolly Parton, 1967)
“I’ve lived my life and I’m only eighteen / Only eighteen but its all over / I ruined my life to please my lover / I made him happy, he made me cry / Then said goodbye”

4. “School Days” (The Runaways, 1977)
“Used to be the trouble maker / Hated homework, was a sweet heart breaker / But now I have my dream / I’m so rowdy for eighteen”

3. “Like a Rock” (Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band, 1986)
“I was eighteen / Didn’t have a care / Working for peanuts / Not a dime to spare / But I was lean / And solid everywhere / Like a rock”

2. “Mama Kin” (Aerosmith, 1973)
“Said you’re as bald as an egg at eighteen / And workin’ for you dad is just a drag / He still stuffs your mouth with your dreams / You better check it out / Or someday soon you’ll have to climb back on the wagon”

1. “I’m Eighteen” (Alice Cooper, 1970)
“Eighteen / I get confused every day / Eighteen / I just don’t know what to say”
