We were actually going to Glastonbury for the first time this year, gutted that it was cancelled.

Before the Deluge, Jackson Browne. The lyrics are amazing so here is the whole song. Even better, find the song and listen to it!

 

Some of them were dreamers
And some of them were fools
Who were making plans and thinking of the future
With the energy of the innocent
They were gathering the tools
They would need to make their journey back to nature
While the sand slipped through the opening
And their hands reached for the golden ring
With their hearts they turned to each other's heart for refuge
In the troubled years that came before the deluge

Some of them knew pleasure
And some of them knew pain
And for some of them it was only the moment that mattered
And on the brave and crazy wings of youth
They went flying around in the rain
And their feathers, once so fine, grew torn and tattered
And in the end they traded their tired wings
For the resignation that living brings
And exchanged love's bright and fragile glow
For the glitter and the rouge
And in the moment they were swept before the deluge

Now let the music keep our spirits high
And let the buildings keep our children dry
Let creation reveal its secrets by and by
By and by...
When the light that's lost within us reaches the sky

Some of them were angry
At the way the earth was abused
By the men who learned how to forge her beauty into power
And they struggled to protect her from them
Only to be confused
By the magnitude of her fury in the final hour
And when the sand was gone and the time arrived
In the naked dawn only a few survived
And in attempts to understand a thing so simple and so huge
Believed that they were meant to live after the deluge

Now let the music keep our spirits high
And let the buildings keep our children dry
Let creation reveal its secrets by and by
By and by...
When the light that's lost within us reaches the sky

"Save me" by Aimee Mann. Soundtrack from the movie Magnolia. A must and the best version of the song. Well worth a listen with a packet of razor blades handy 😃

One of Daniel Radcliffe's choices on 'Desert Island Discs' the other week. Tom Lehrer, 'We'll All Go Together When We Go'. Written for the nuclear war threat age but pertinent still.

Running to Stand Still by U2 - what happens when you run out of space to exercise in the living room.

 

Once in a Lifetime by Talking Heads - this is meant to be a once in one hundred years events, so seems to fit (except for those of us with extraordinarily long life spans).

That has got to be one of the saddest songs ever written. Hank Williams expressed such deep universal emotion in his lyrics and his voice. It brings tears to my eyes when I listen to it. He really had a way with words. 
 

One of my favorite songs, but yes, very sad. I used to have a voice that could sing it decently. We had a small family quartet, my brother-in-law had a beautiful mellow country voice and played the guitar. We performed around town by request. Two nights ago, the song fit my mood. My sister and I could do a credible duet & harmony to “Apartment #9”.
Hank Williams was a tortured soul with addictions, and he wrote songs from those experiences and feelings. But yet today, he is revered by other C&W singers, who write songs including Hank’s name, if not about him.

This brings back memories when my family and my sister’s family and our mother would go camping at a popular lake the first week of August every year. As the sun begin to set, we’d gather around, Ike would get out his guitar and we’d sing. Next thing, we’d look around and people from other campsites were sitting in their lawn chairs they had carried to our camp, along with a cold beer or soda, listening. My mother had a good, old-time voice who could yodel, and she loved to sing Jimmy Roger’s songs, among others of that type. People begged her (she was very shy) to sing “Mule Skinner Blues” and “Milk Cow Blues”. When I was a teen, my mother and I would sing and harmonize as we washed up the evening dishes. Every day. Always Country.
