Advice Songs From The 1970s

If life seems jolly rotten,
There’s something you’ve forgotten,
And that’s to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you’re feeling in the dumps,
Don’t be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle.
That’s the thing…
-Monty Python (From Life of Brian)

Giving and accepting advice is one part of life that helps us through the trials and tribulations we are faced with.The problem with advice is that we often don’t take it, especially if it means doing or admitting something that we’d rather not. Sometimes advice brings up an option you didn’t think of before, or gives you another question without an answer.Often inspiring and uplifting, sometimes a cold slap in the face, and occasionally funny, the great thing about advice songs is that you can kick back and listen to someone else coach you through a tough situation while rocking out at the same time.

Advice may be given… advice may be taken. Even advice without an answer can remind you that you are never alone.

ADVICE
Definition: an opinion or recommendation offered as a guide to action, conduct. Advice, reflective thought and a pause in instinctive reactions can help people make the right decisions.

PONDER
Definition: to consider something deeply and thoroughly; meditate or to weigh carefully in the mind and consider thoughtfully.

You don’t tug on Superman’s cape
You don’t spit into the wind
You don’t the pull the mask off an ol’ Lone Ranger
And you don’t mess around with Jim
-You Don’t Mess Around With Jim by Jim Croce
