So, to give everyone's mood an optimistic boost, here's some music you forgot you knew, or maybe you didn't know, or maybe you weren't even born when it was around. Lovely, hopeful tunes from a time when hope didn't seem like such a lost cause, and people could (and DID) change the world.
The Mamas and the Papas - (Twelve Thirty) Young Girls are Coming to the Canyon (lyrics here).
The Kingston Trio - Charlie and the MTA
lyrics. Apologies, but I couldn't find a lyrics site that spelled "Scollay" right. Grr. At least this has a little history.
Oliver - Good Morning Starshine
Simon and Garfunkel - The Only Living Boy in New York
The Brothers Four - Angelique-O lyrics
Oh, this is fun! More later. Or tomorrow.
