Act 6
Life … the time for the living to live. One’s life among others starts when one is born. Shortly thereafter, we are given something that stays with us no matter where we go – a name. Immediately, we are nourished so we grow physically, mentally, and emotionally from babies into young children … and that’s when we start to dream about our future life. Growth never stops, so from children we move on as teens. Submit a song with any of the following in the title: teen(s), teenager(s), teenage, or any specific teenage year.

To prevent browsers crashing from loading too many videos, please 1) include the song title and artist in your text, and 2) paste the URL as part of your last line (not a new line). The latter will provide a link, thus not embed the actual video … but I don’t mind unembedding, so apologies are not necessary.

Announcement

  1. I have no song to contribute – but do have an almost relevant story. I must compliment you on including Ringo in your line up as he was my original teenage heart-throb :-) As a very young teenager I took an unlicensed day off school with my best friend and sneaked into the Wellington Town Hall and left a note on his drum seat. It was the highlight of my 13 years!!

  2. ahhhhhhh…. he was my favurite when I was a young girl :) It’s been (as if) very long time ago…
    Thank you dear Frank, I enjoyed, dancing now :) Have a nice day, love, nia

  3. “Growth never stops.” That is true. However, I submit that as life continues, the options available diminish. It is ironic that the most options in life are present just at the time when physically mature people are least equipped to deal with them, mentally and emotionally. That time, of course, is the late teen years. I have always admired how well Roy Clark’s rendition of Yesterday, When I Was Young captures the poignancy of this reality. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=GQIAcztYjbc

  4. Oh no!!!! I missed the opening! But you took my song anyway, Frank. For the entire year I was 16, my sister Judy and her two kids lived back at home with us. She used to dance around me singing that song all the time while I tried to smack her. We always ended up laughing our heads off. We were both disappointed when my birthday rolled around.

    Thanks for the memory.
