» Only Seventeen

ONLY SEVENTEEN was born from a comment my wife made to me regarding my then 18 year old sons newest girlfriend we met for the first. My wife said to me, I cant believe shes only sixteen!! She looked at least twenty or so and the idea was launched. It is a totally fun song as per the lyric in the third verse. Just pokin fun at old guys like me who still think we look hot to catch the eye of all those young beautiful girls that seem to be everywhere!! Since this was a lyrical take off on the Beatles, "I Saw Her Standing There" we used the "Lennon only danced" line on the chorus and the yeah, yeah, yeah vocal on the fade. When it came time for the obvious guitar solo all I kept hearing was the end of "Suite:Judy Blue Eyes" and thus my vocal tribute to one of my favorite bands, CSN.
