1960’s An Amazing Time

My parents love music. I love the music that played while I was in the womb. The music that played in the background of my youth while I was laying in the floor with my toys. I love the music that played in the distance while I lay in bed at night. Let’s not forget the music that played on the car radio while we fought with our siblings in the backseat. It is the soundtrack to life.  

I listened to music more than watched tv in the 1960’s and early 1970’s.  The small black and white televisions in most homes didn’t give you the mental stimulation that music did and it was all around us.  

Listed here are some of the songs that came out the year I was born. 1966

Paint it Black – Rolling Stones

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down) – Cher

Just Like Me – Paul Revere and the Raiders

Did You Ever Have To Make Up Your Mind? – Lovin’ Spoonful

Reach Out I’ll Be There – The Four Tops

Green Grass – Gary Lewis & The Playboys (Great SUMMER song!☀️)

Woman – Peter & Gordon 

Lightnin’ Strikes – Lou Christie

Cherish – The Association

Bus Stop – The Hollies 

Uptight – Stevie Wonder

Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs -Little Red Riding Hood
Wild Thing – The Troggs

Eleanor Rigby – The Beatles

Sweet Talkin’ Guy – The Chiffons

Take the Medicine

My brother and his fiancé introduced me to Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People. Wow it is alluring music for sure. I hope you all take a listen.  The video I post below is a good song for meditation.  

ENJOY 💜🙏🏻🌴🌺🎧☮

I haven’t been writing because I’ve just lost my dad a little over a week ago. Today is the celebration of his life. I will post more about my dad in the coming weeks but for now, this is just a short goodbye to my dad, the ole man, the hippie, the Christian, the maker of stained glass, the keeper of the rocking chair. He loved a cold beer and classic easy going rock, and to rock away his time next to my mother, his wife of fifty years.  We all have to go sometime and when he went I’m happy to say he wasn’t too worried about any of us. He was proud of his family and loved us all.  Goodbye dad.
