Sorry for the video quality, at least the audio is OK. It's the best I could find.

"A Man I'll Never Be" is a song written by Tom Scholz and first released on Boston's 1978 album Don't Look Back. It was also released as a single and reached #31 on the Billboard Hot 100, spending five weeks on the chart. It also reached #27 in Canada.

"A Man I'll Never Be" is a change of pace from the songs on Boston's debut album and some of the other songs on Don't Look Back. Allmusic critic Tim Sendra claimed that the song reveals "a reflective side that was nowhere to be found on Boston." Paul Grein of Billboard commented on the song's "religious feel," describing it as "the softest cut on the album" and noting that "it may well be a strong single." Grein also commented on the song's "moody organ solo" and "ponderous ballad sound." New West magazine described the song's subject as "how hard it is to live up to a girl's image of a boy." Rolling Stone critic Ken Emerson compared "A Man I'll Never Be" to Led Zeppelin's lengthy classic song "Stairway to Heaven." On Boston's official site, David Wild described the song as "a slowburning power ballad reflecting real grown-up concerns and lived-in reality." Craig Rosen of Billboard Magazine concurred in describing the song as a power ballad. Los Angeles Times critic Jon Matsumoto called the song "a grandiose guilty pleasure.

R.I.P. Bradley Edward Delp (June 12, 1951 – March 9, 2007)
