DJ Michael introduces the 7 songs that he finds capture our 7 ages of love as they progress from that first schoolboy crush, through teen heartbreak to a realization that no one of us should ever “let the sun go down on me.”
Read, watch, remember, enjoy. Maybe shed a tear.
Age 1. The Schoolboy Crush.
“Elton’s Song,” Elton John.
Age 2. Off to the Big City.
“Smalltown Boy”, Bronski Beat with Jimmy Somerville
“Mother will never understand
Why you had to leave
But the answers you seek
Will never be found at home
The love that you need
Will never be found at home”
Age 3. New Face in the Bar.
“New Kid in Town,” The Eagles.
“There's talk on the street, it's there to
Remind you, that it doesn't really matter
which side you're on.
You're walking away and they're talking behind you
They will never forget you 'til somebody new comes along”
Age 4. First Heartbreak.
“Tainted Love.” Soft Cell, Mark Almond
“Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I'll run from you
This tainted love you've given
I gave you all a boy could give you
Take my tears and that's not nearly all
Age 5. The One That Got away.
“You were always on my mind.” Pet Shop Boys.
Age 6. Where did my boyhood go?
“Boy Child.” Scott Walker
“You'll lose your way
A boy child rides upon your back
Take him away
Through mirrors dark and blessed with cracks
Through forgotten courtyards
Where you used to search for youth”
Age 7. Now I Get It.
“Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me.” George Michael, Elton John.
“Oh, don't let the sun go down on me
Although I search myself it's always someone else I see
I just allowed a fragment of your life to wander free, oh
Cause' losing everything is like the sun going down on me”
