The Zombies: She's Not There

Weekend Music

The local paper has a daily list of famous people whose birthday is on that day. Today happens to be Colin Blumstone's: he's 66 (!). If I'm not mistaken, he was the lead singer on this song, which I liked at least as much as anything by the Beatles when I was in high school. 

And it's an odd comment on human nature--or my nature, anyway, on the longing that can't be satisfied. It's 45 years later, I'm 62 years old, I'm happily married...and yet, in some way, she's still not there.

The problem is really that you're not there. But that's okay because none of us are.


Good song.

I have known this song since childhood, but didn't know the title or the group.

I loved that song when I was a young teenager. (Yes, I am older than dirt now. :))

That may make me dirt+1, then, depending on what you mean by "young teenager." It was more like mid-teens for me--16, maybe.

I'm finding that I occasionally enjoy being the oldest person in a group. Might as well enjoy it, I guess.

My goal in life now is to be the oldest person at the seminary. I think there are only 3 people ahead of me now.


I sure hope I don't end up in that position here. Right now there are several profs who are way ahead of me, though probably not too many staff people. But I hope to be gone before I'm the eldest. I don't anticipate that I would be consulted for my wisdom if that happened.

But I don't want to be gone before I'm ready, either.
