Now: Let’s NOT forget some of those – Older Songs:
And This was a Song of Youth: That was a sensation, in it’s day.
YES: It really was a song of the new age of the Young..
Gentle Flower Power People.
San Francisco – Scott McKenzie 3.02
Oh I can tell you I adored that song:
And: Another song from that period that was just Sensational was this:
Whiter Shade of Pale – Procol Harem 4.00
But: I was never really sure What it was all about?
And: This is one of the best of the Older days songs.. Great Song
THIS IS A NEW VERSION THAT I REALLY LIKE:
See what (YOU think.)
500 Miles – Llewyn Davis 3.24
And then listening to some of the Older Songs.. I remembered this one.. Oh it was GREAT
“True Love Ways” Buddy Holly 3.08
Such a shame He died So Young..
Just what Other Great Songs He might have given Us???
But then: You might be saying I am getting away from FOLK!!
And YES.. True:
So back to one of the greatest Folk Songs of thatperiod, and THIS was a real Smasher:
Peter, Paul & Mary – Early Morning Rain 2.57
They were a “ One of the First GREAT Super Groups”.
And indeed Our Own Folk Club was Greatlyinfluenced by Peter, Paul and Mary. Songs.
And on special occasions the Committee would sing a Peter, Paul and Mary song.
1960’s truly were GREAT Days.
If you Ask YOU TUBE for a list of 1960 Folk Singers??..
You will have a list of truly FANTASTIC ARTISTS that Did Change OUR World. And there were Many that were not True Folk: But: We Loved Like Gerry and the Pacemakers.. andof course The Beetles.
And from Australia came The Seekers.
I’ll Never Find Another You 3.04
Oh They really WERE SOMETHING New and if you turned the radio on THE SEEKERS might well be What was playing.
Although: In the Folk Cubs I was in.. You did not hear their songs Much!! You was much more likely to hear a Bob Dylan Song being sung.
Blowing In The Wind (Live On TV, March 1963) 2.35
Bob Dylan really was writing Songs that wereappealing to THE YOUNG. And: Times Really Were a Changing.
Till Next time.
