Podcast Episode #6--These Days

A barely-legal Jackson Browne. Just how Nico liked him.

A teenage Jackson Browne wrote this world-weary classic (some know it as a Nico song; some know it as a Gregg Allman song...) while living in sunny southern California. Since then, it has been covered in a variety of styles, undergone some drastic changes, and seems to have returned to its owner in a matured, but similar state as it was in when he first gave it to the world. Browne can now sing his jaded words with some wisdom instead of teen angst. We'll hear several treatments of the song from 1967 to now.

  1. I really like the Paul Westerberg version of this song! The twangy riff works for me.
