I've never romanticized it much, though it was certainly a simpler time and, for better or worse, it's where I learned to make some sense of my life. The world you inhabit when you come of age in your teen years has a way of digging its claws in you. As the years pass, no matter how far you try to get away from it, it stays with you.

Song Premiere: Beck Remixes Philip Glass With 'NYC: 73-78' http://northernpublicradio.org/post/song-premiere-beck-remixes-philip-glass-nyc-73-78 The latest tease from this fall's upcoming collection of remixed <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15680178/philip-glass">Philip Glass</a> tunes comes from <a href="http://www.npr.org/artists/15333650/beck">Beck</a>. The 20-minute song, "NYC: 73-78," includes snippets from more than 20 Glass songs, which Beck cut together and re-imagined.<p>Beck turned the many clips into a gorgeous, trance-inducing meditation on Glass' nearly half-century of work as a pioneering avant-garde composer.
