Songs for the listening.


Recommended Posts

:cool:Greetings, Growing up I learned that music would play a important part in my life, from passing on my emotions and feelings to growing old. Later on in life I found out how important music was to my Fids lives, they thrive on it... I would like to post songs here, strictly for entertainment, if at anytime anyone feels this is inappropriate, I'll stop with out question.


When Maggie and I met, we were Folk singers :)[lol], Maggie sang with the world group, "Up with People", I sang on corners.[lol]:D Maggie still plays and sings to me with her 12 and 6 string acrostic guitars.



The First song here, many of us heard in our younger days, it's a Cuban folk song, and when it was sung new verses would be added.





What's the important? A lot of us heard it played but never new the meaning. You'll be surprised...


Joe and Salsa both give it a Thumbs up.


Let there be Love.:)

Pookie tries to sing in the evenings she loves music but all we usually get of her concert is the "Hi Ho" from Snow white. I remember watching Up With People on TV along with Peter Paul and Mary and Pete Seeger. Buffy St. Marie was a favorite Joan Baez yes I enjoyed folk music. Petes voice gives a taste of the coyotes call our birds always stop and listen.

Oh yes, that was a long time ago. We got hi from the music. When Dylan broke onto the seen, I formed a little group, "Jayd, BUG and JUDY" That's when the Folk Clubs sprang up, new life for folk music. Names like: Golden Bear, Prison of Socrates and the Drinking Gourd, [so-CAL beach area]. Here's a list of people who sang there:

Yes, The 60's, Great singers and song, WAR and Peace marches.

Whats going on now around me reminds me of So much I wanted to forget about. This is the period in my life I changed my shirt for a uniform.
We over came that, will do it again!!!!

And then, into a new era.
