Don't take it so seriously, no
Only time is ours, the rest we'll just wait and see
Maybe you're right, babe, maybe
Oh, no, and that's how summer passed
Oh, your, great divide and range of green green grass
And, oh, maybe I hold on fast to you
For me, music and sports often collide.
And last night I happened to be listening to the beautiful new Ben Howard album, I Forget Where We Were, when I heard the news of St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Oscar Taveras. "24 and there's so much more," Neil Young once sang.
Taveras lost his life at 22.
So maybe it's fitting that today's Jam of the Day talks about that fleeting life, the importance of listening, the cruel myth of invincibility.
Today, there is still time.
Peace and love to all.
