song to the siren


It’s strange that a generation grew up thinking of Tim Buckley as Jeff’s dad.
It’s really strange that this particular recording comes from the final episode of “The Monkees.”
It’s interesting that in this version he uses the lyric, “puzzled as the oyster,” which he later changed to “puzzled as a newborn child.”


One thought on “song to the siren

  1. The car wreck set is apt. Not that he was in one, but that his life became one.

    I remember his Ann Arbor concert when he was moving out of this folky style into his next era. He had a very dissatisfied audience who wanted to hear their old Tim Buckley and he didn’t want to be that person.
