Paste magazine has an article online about songs that remind of us our fathers

so how about it

my father couldn't settle down, took off when my sister and i were young, and while there are tons of songs about shitty relationships and men who do their loved ones wrong, my song to start this is not one of those tunes

@djjd62,
Can't say there's a song which reminds me of my father. Then again, not so strange since I can't even recall what he looked like.

Curious what music will be brought forth by others.

This one sprang to mind, as.......well, he was a Fireman.

When I saw this thread, my mind instantly went to this song. Very, very sentimental. Hesitant to post it. But what the hell. It reminds me of my father. Saddled with a kid who asked a million questions. He always answered patiently.



Sonomabitch. Now I'm crying.

After he got out it was more like:



Good times.

Very touching thread dj.
And look...you made Roberta cry. Sad

My sister asked me to make a mix-tape to play in the background at my father's memorial. Looking through the list I realize what an influence my dad had in my passion for music and my decision to become a professional musician.
I know he was uneasy with my career path but he never dissuaded me and on the contrary he supported all the bands I joined and played in; even supplying art work for T-shirts and album covers.

As a child our house was filled with eclectic music from all over the world, especially folk music from other cultures; Alpine choirs and Argentine gaucho songs.

This is the first song I remember him singing to us.

I did not know my father, but I was told this was his favorite song.
