Very soulful ballad.

Slow 70’s ballad.

Farewell ballad about leaving the past behind and becoming a different person.
All Things Must Pass by The Beatles
If you like Blackbird, you'll like this...
A Summer Song by Chad and Jeremy
Nostalgia without being over-sentimental.
This is a classic ballad from the legendary Lionel Ritchie.
This is a very slow nostalgic ballad from the 70's, about when "you wake up and time has slipped away". Nostalgic, rather than sentimental.
Slow melancholy-sweet ballad, about moving forward and making changes in your life and yourself:
"So farewell to the old me,
Farewell to the old me,
My life is working better now,
It's always changing anyhow..."
This song is nostalgic without being sentimental - a good song for feeling more philosophical, remembering good times for what they are - memories that make us happy to think of them, bringing love and laughter from the past into our present thoughts. All good things must end some day. Autumn leaves must fall.
