Day 16 - A song that you used to love but now hate

I was nine, I had only just recently emptied my piggy bank and bought my first pick up. The birthday after that I got an album by the BeeGees. I guess I must have hinted that that one would be nice. My favourite song was 'Tragedy'.

Only a few albums later (Cheap Trick, Normaal, Police), I had enough records to play. I think at age 11 I played the Beegees album for the last time in my life. Nearly three decades later I still own it though.

My favourite song from 1979 certainly fits the Day 16 task. On YouTube I found a version with karaoke lyrics included. Sing along if you still like the song...




Here I lie
in a lost and lonely part of town
Held in time
In a world of tears I slowly drown
Goin'home
I just can't make it all alone
I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving you

Tragedy
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no-one to love you you're
goin' nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no-one beside you you're
goin' nowhere
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on

Night and day
there's a burning down inside of me
Burning love
With a yearning that won't let me be
Down I go
and I just can't take it all alone
I really should be holding you
Holding you
Loving you loving

Tragedy
When the feeling's gone and you can't go on
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no-one to love you you're
goin' nowhere
Tragedy
When you lose control and you got no soul
It's tragedy
When the morning cries and you don't know why
It's hard to bear
With no-one beside you you're
goin' nowhere (repeat and fade)
