Band: Dag Nasty Album: Field Day (1988) Song: All Ages Show
This is without question one of the absolute best Dag Nasty songs, and it has one of the catchiest guitar riffs I've ever heard. Peter Cortner is singing on this one, not Dave Smalley. Field Day was evidently a controversial album, but this song is not one of the experimental tracks. I think everyone can enjoy this... regardless of age (yeah, I went there).
Lyrics From www.daghouse.com:
I understand you you've got a problem now understand me it's your problem not mine to find a reason, don't ask me don't ask (anyone) for a reason to live your life shake your head, left and right like the old man who shows up here every night what does he hear in this kind of music? why don't you ask him? find out what you need to know all ages show you haven't lived all there is to live how old is old? how old is old? all ages show I get the feeling that I've heard all this before I spoke your words, I felt your feelings but when I reached a dead end, I knew there was more I guess I'm just too young to see it but I've shorn* up some people a little bit older and they say the problems keep coming but reasons to keep on trying keep growing and they grow and they grow and they grow all ages show (* shorn = "slept with")
