I have 2 that come to mind

Rush Limelight 

“I can’t pretend a stranger is a long awaited friend”

Grateful Dead Hell in a bucket

I may be going to hell in a bucket, babe
But at least I'm enjoying the ride, at least I'll enjoy the ride.

Bust it, I let the beat commence so I can beat the sense in your elite defense

I got some meat to mince, a crew to stomp and then two feet to rinse

I greet the gents and ladies, I spoil loyal fans

I foil plans and leave fluids leaking like oil pans

My coiled hands around this microphone are lethal

One thought in my cerebral is deeper then a Jeep full of people

MC's are feeble, I came to cause some pandemonium

Battle a band of phony MC's and stand the lonely one

Imitator, Intimidator, Stimulator, Simulator of data, Eliminator

There's never been a greater since the burial of Jesus

Fuck around and catch all of the venereal diseases

My thesis will smash a stereo to pieces

My accapella releases plastic masterpieces through telekinesis

That eases you mentally, gently, sentimentally, instrumentally

With entity, dementedly meant to be Infinite

In 1977 I turned 30 when this song came out. Considering that I had been a skydiver, a motorcycle rider and a soldier in Vietnam, somehow the song just fit me at that time in my life. Some days it still fits and I just smile to think about it.  Everything past 30 has been icing on the cake for a risk taker like me. Ironically he died at age 62 of a misdiagnosed pulmonary embolism.

From Charlie Rich's  Rollin' With The Flow: "Once was a thought inside my head, 'fore I reached 30 I'd be dead. But somehow on and on I go. I keep on rollin' with the flow."

And another great set of lyrics from Steve forbert.

"You've traveled so far
The wind in your face
You're thinking you've found
The one special place
Where all your dreams
Will walk out in line
And follow the course
You've made in your mind

Hey, it isn't gonna be that way
It isn't gonna be, that way"

Went to God's country the first time around age 26 or 27.  So..................................................... John Denver's Rocky Mountain High. 


He was born in the summer of his 27th year
Comin' home to a place he’d never been before
He left yesterday behind him, you might say he was born again
You might say he found a key for every door

Now he walks in quiet solitude the forests and the streams
Seeking grace in every step he takes
His sight has turned inside himself to try and understand
The serenity of a clear blue mountain lake


And I've been hiking those mountains every year since that time. Going back next month to my brother's place in Estes Park.
