  1. 1.
    "A Pirate Looks at 40" | Jimmy Buffett
    Reminds him of getting old and dying. Specifically that Jimmy Buffett and the rest of the baby boomers will die and this earth will be inherited by half-men like his two "sons."
  2. 2.
    "Hotel California" | The Eagles
    Reminds him of being trapped by one's own demons. The water works start during the guitar solo
  3. 3.
    "Dirty Work" | Steely Dan
    Probably reminds him of how he cheated on my mom
  4. 4.
    "The Sound of Silence" | Simon & Garfunkel
    Reminds him of "The Graduate" and the cruel uncertainty of life. Also affairs. He knows a thing or two about those
  5. 5.
    "Hey Jude" | The Beatles
    Supposedly written for John Lennon's son in the wake of his parents divorce following an affair with Yoko. Who does that remind you of, Michael?
  6. 6.
    "Dreams" | Fleetwood Mac
    Reminds him of the good ole days of sleeping around with your friend's lovers. When did society get so square?
  7. 7.
    "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" | Elton John
