FOR A DANCER

younger JBMight be a hundred ways to describe this song by Jackson Browne.  Deep, philosophical, sensitive, poignant, wise, and bittersweet are several that come to mind.  I consider “For A Dancer” his third greatest written song–which ain’t easy cause almost all his songs are great and incomparable!  But this is definitely one you need to listen to, and read along–for the lyrics are included with this recording on YouTube.  I’d be curious to hear everyone’s feedback and impression after you listen to this lilting torch song about the meaning of life that Jackson Browne wrote for a friend who lost his in the Vietnam War.  What’s also neat is that The Eagles sing backup on the song!
