Song of the day – Peter, Paul and Mary – Blowing in the Wind

  1. Remembering that group and this song as if it were just YESTERDAY! Also remembering headliner events and topics of THAT time……. Early 60s…. Emotional times… segregation/integration, Vietnam, the beatnik/hippie/FREE? love movements etc all during my college & early marriage years – lots of eventful headlines. The music stars that accompanied it all…Peter, Paul & Mary, Joan Baez, Pete Seeger and more were our music & sort of Ideals idols. Just the sound of their songs evokes so many memories. Age & life experiences have altered some of those 55 year old feelings, but the memories remain golden!

    Interesting related video on FB, “The Complete True Story Behind “American Pie.” I watched all of it, even tho it was posted in that VILE format of 20 sections of “NEXT” interspersed with ads. The best parts were comments on the times. Like “Blowing in the Wind”, “American Pie” by Don McLean is one of those memory songs whose lyrics seem to reference much in today’s society.

    • Patricia, those were some exciting times and the music from that era was fantastic also. Thank you for using the new I think it’s a huge improvement.
