4. Not to the points in the song that would shape him, but just projecting on random nights when I’d put it on. Especially the opening lines of planes to catch.

When he was born, I was still traveling (talking 45+ weekends a year). I did just about 18 months of that before we (me and wife) hit a breaking point where I had to quit or get a new position at company. This song, consciously or unconsciously definitely played a role for me. 


Ment to get back to you on this.  Good to hear.  I still have a frog felt cut out with a cork circle sitting on my desk my son made me to set my coffee on when he was a kid.  I also have a piece of torn cardboard that he wrote "you are my hero".  I have a cork board that was in my office with a torn piece of paper tacked to it from my daughter when she was a kid.  It said "hi father".  These things are priceless to me today.  This song lands on your ears with some motivation.  Mine a little regret.

P-opera for me.

You may recognize this from Gladiator. I think this was originally intended as the theme song....but royalties or something:


And another from Pavarotti, with James Brown - just pure awesomeness:

This is a new song. If you have lost your father, don't listen to it in public.

Last Kiss - any version. I’m partial to Pearl Jam since it was in my formative years. Thank God never had to live through anything like that, but I tear up sometimes just listening and imagining it.
