Day 353: Keep good company, Queen
This little number appeared on Queen’s “Night at the Opera” album which in my view was by far their best album. I really like this little ditty as it captures the wise truth that it is very easy to lose friendships with the progression of the years. In my own life I can think of many who have travelled some of that strange road we call our life and yet are no longer walking with me. My favourite lines in this song are:
Now I’m old and puff my pipe but no one’s there to see
Ponder on my the lesson of my life’s insanity
Take care of those you call your own and keep good company.
The banjo in this song is also very good!
