The Beach Boys - I Just Wasn’t Made For These Times
Sometimes I feel very sad.
This was the song planning while Roger was straight trippin’ on Mad Men Sunday night. It’s one of my favourite Beach Boys songs - so melancholic!
The lyrics were written by Brian Wilson and Tony Asher about the ruminations on romance and the loss of innocence involved in growing up. Wilson stated in his autobiography that I Just Wasn’t Made for These Times was telling a self-portrait of his troubled psyche and that he was too advanced for his time. Wilson stated “It’s about a guy who was crying out because he thought he was too advanced, and that he’d eventually have to leave people behind.”
