Normally I’d be doing this with Alasdair but he ain’t here, so I’m reliant upon you, my good friends, to listen and I hope enjoy.

I’m listening to music that relates to the US tonight and while some of it clearly has painful history from the 70’s and the past, let me start with something that is just fun… America – Sister Golden Hair…

…But tonight I find myself reminded of the film Soldier Blue. Buffy Saint Marie with such a painful song to sing…

…And then there was Joan Baez with a memory from the Civil War…

…Joan Baez has such an amazing voice šŸ™‚

Can’t help with similar songs relating to the English Civil War – it was sooo Long agoooo… šŸ˜‰

More listening to things from my Son and from friends – lots of interesting music out there. This track came to my attention via a fellow member of the Truck Sim community who happens to be a furry. This track by Kesha has had animation added by a member of the furry community and I enjoyed both the music and the animation…

Alasdair continues to feed in some of his fave tracks – I loved the pace and lyrics of this one by Fox Stevenson – try to keep up…

…all tricksy stuff and I’m impressed šŸ™‚

I need something slow and thoughtful after that – how about Cuby and the Blizzards?..

…Now that’s old-school – but I like it šŸ™‚

It’s been a difficult few weeks… Few? Actually, I went out with my camera today for the first time in 4 months! I hope to share some shots from that very stunted outing, as I did my best to obey the revised lockdown requirements, with you later this week. However, I have spent some time sharing sounds with my Son and I’m going to share a couple of songs that he didn’t like very much. The overarching reason may have been that they were too sad although the first is perhaps too poignant a commentary on relationships. Here’s Peter Hammill…

And this one from Marillion was ahead of the game about climate change – it brings a tear to my eye every time and had the same effect on Alasdair…

….This terrible pandemic experience has given us a moment of pause, a chance to understand the effect our activites have on our planet and on our future as a species. We have the opportunity to fully understand and to step back from the precipice.Ā  I just hope we take it!
