"For a Dancer" by Jackson Browne is beyond incredible. The venerable wisdom of his lyrics just totally BLEW me Away!!!! He is incredibly amazing!!!!!

Jackson has always been my favorite. I invited him to my wedding and he actually responded back with a personal letter and a original photo. sorry i can not make it i will be touring in Europe at that time

Outstanding! Great music. These are real artists on this station. The younger generation have no idea what music is or what they are missing out on.

I've listened to Jackson Browne from the 70's after getting back from Nam. I saw him in concert in Lexington, KY in 77's. I find it interesting that he and some of the Eagles...Gle n I think lived in the same apartment building and Glen gave Jackson Browne credit for teaching him to write songs. One line added to Take it Easy by Glen and Jackson said thanks you just wrote a song with me. Do you know that line??

My mistake, this song was actually written about a friend of Jackson's just as julesingeorg i a said. When I think about it it does make sense, considering the line that says he lost track of him. Still makes me tear up.

@Beauxartz I believe you are totally correct. Jackson Browne is my all-time favorite and this is one of the most soulful songs from a performer who can bring you (at least me anyway) to tears at the drop of a hat, or make you laugh, but most of all, he makes you THINK and that's what makes him the most powerful singer/songw r i t e r of the era.

I have seen JB in concert a few times and have most or all of his recordings. My favorites are still The Pretender, Your Bright Baby Blues, Rock Me on the Water-but the others are all good. His lyrics surpass many writers' lyrics.

late for the sky, beck sea change and springsteen tunnel of love are three terrific CDs. Every song on all three CDs are fantastic

Not written for his wife; she died after the song was written. It was written for a friend. See the post below.

I've heard it was written for his wife who committed suicide.

Could JB be talking to God in this song? Listen to the lyrics.

according to a friend that knew a member of Jackson's band, this song is written about a fellow that would drop by for the band's rehersals when they were in San Franciso area for a couple of months preparing for a tour. The fellow was a friend and "band junkie" and made every rehersal, dancing to every song that was played. He became ill with cancer and died shortly after Jackson and the band began the tour.

Of all his songs this one best describes why we are here, to be a Dancer and pass it along....... . . . .

My Favorite song for 30 some years....... T h a n k you Patrick whenever I hear Jackson Browne I always think of you and Crystal

Haunting plaintive sad lyrics poetically blended with that one of a kind Jackson Browne sound. This guy has it all down.
