    No...not songs about mirrors. :D

    Songs...that when you listen to them, it's like looking in a mirror. Where you see yourself in them.

    I've got a few...but this one hits home. Lots of Hiatt tunes do...but this one...right down to playing the blues at Madame Wing's...not being able to see the coastline anymore...I see myself in every verse. And the chorus says it all.

    So here it is. What's yours? :)

    This is one that comes to mind. I looked up to my dad but he was a busy Man. He’s gone now and as hard as I try to spend more time with my kids, I think of my dad and this song as the time flies by quickly.

    Chapin was great. Lyrically he was able to find common ground with his audience. Not speaking to them...speaking with them. His stories included the listener. Just great stuff.

    This song reminds me of when I left home and moved to NYC and got a crappy apartment in Brooklyn to try and make it in the film and television audio post business. The lyric “where the New York City winters aren’t bleeding me” hit home for me when I was hurting for cash to eat and pay the rent in winter 2000-2001.

    This one reminds me of me...ahhh, miss the good ol days

    And my plate is full
    And I feel the pull
    And my time is spent
    Searching for something that came and went

    Take me back
    Take me back to a golden time
    From '75 to '79
    And it makes it easy, so easy for me

    Strap it on
    Strap it on my old school
    I change by staying the same

    And it grows inside
    Metastasize
    And my brain goes crazy
    Sepia toned days are hazy

    Take me back
    Take me back to the heavy time
    From '85 to '89
    It makes it easy so easy for me.

    I can think of several that mirror someone I used to be, but nothing for now.

    Not a perfect mirror but certainly expresses the kind of doubled up and contrasting internal dialog that plays in my head.
