Top 7 “These Days”

This song not included.

It’s a strange occurrence, maybe coincidence, which I would certainly look into if I were a musician readying a new track. There are a handful of artists who have released songs with the same title as others before them. Remember in the early 2000s when it seemed like every terrible pop-punk band put out a song that had the world “anthem” somewhere in the title? Well, for this List Off post, we’re diving a bit deeper. In fact, all of these songs are titled, “These Days”. Come on musicians; let’s be a bit more creative. It was fine for the first band, but to keep going with it? Let’s go. So the various “These Days” coming up range in meaning and purpose; some are about relationships, some about politics, others about just living in the times (whatever times they may have been). So if you’re a fan of songs that all share the same title, and enjoy good music (most of these songs are pretty solid), then enjoy the list of the best “These Days” in music history. Believe it or not, there are a bunch more songs titled “These Days”. I hate repetition. I hate repetition.

    The Nico/Jackson Browne “These Days” is the only really great one though.

      Incorrect. The R.E.M. one is great as well. And while Jackson wrote it, Nico’s version is the definitive one.

    I’m just a sucker for Jackson Browne. R.E.M.’s is really good though too.
