It's an old, old song that Gary Morris sung (I think he was a country singer)

Draggin' the Lake For the Moon

Not the title but the song Fallen sung by Lauren Wood - I'm still smitten with my husband and if I could sing I would sing this to him - instead I just put it on a CD for him lol

Didn't mean no harm, luvs. Boomers are reputed to be famous navel-gazers, that's all.

I also don't think it's a boomer thing, but that everyone chooses one, even if it is simply "our song" which I think most couples have of any era. Now that we're talking songs that sort of sum up our lives now -- well, I'm 50, and didn't "discover" this song until recent years, although I was familiar with it. "Our song" has more to a memory of a certain occaision. The personal anthem I think you need to be older to select, and has more to do with poetry than the melody or a specific memory -- the words mean something.

navel gazer = it's all about me, because I am endlessly fascinating.

Many boomers drank this Kool Aid served up by the media ever since the GIs came home from WW2 and all started families at the same time.

I always thought it meant - contemplating one's navel.

"Endlessly fascinating." I like it. Can I borrow that one, Mud.

I'm stealing the line "I'm endlessly facinating" and see if anyone believes it! Wait - I already know the answer to that - never mind. I never heard that term - kinda cute.
