The song “When I Was Young” was an international hit in 1967 for Eric Burdon and the Animals, climbing to #15 in the USA. The song was fairly biographical for Eric Burdon although the first references are of his father. The song was something of an anthem for the times, and has been covered by many artists including Tina Turner, Poison, Golden Earring and The Ramones. It’s one of my favorite Eric Burdon songs, but today it’s another forgotten oldie.
