Advice Songs of the 1960s

Advice3Advice Songs From The 1960s

When I became of age my mother called me to her side,
She said,”Son, you’re growing up now pretty soon you’ll take a bride.
And then she said, “Just because you’ve become a young man now,
There’s still somethings that you don’t understand now,
Before you ask some girl for her hand now
Keep your freedom for as long as you can now.

-Smokey Robinson, Shop Around

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.

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

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.

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

No, you can’t always get what you want
But if you try sometime, you just might find
You get what you need
