Last Night I had The Strangest Dream

September 11, 2006
A solemn anniversary.

Only one song came to my mind as I sat to write this post.

The Chad Mitchell Trio took a few more risks than most other folkies of the 1960s by openly speaking out about the current events of the time.

One song has, unfortunately, remained topical.

Ah, if only...

Thanks Ed, that was lovely both in sound and sentiment.

I remember this one. I was a teenager. Our madrigal group at school wanted to sing this and they wouldn't let us - it was too controversial. What was controversial about it? Someone dreamed there was no war? We all should! Thanks for bringing back that memory.

Hi Ladytex - It is amusing to look back at what was considered controversial. I grew up in Maryland, where then governor Spiro Agnew tried to bad "Puff the Magic Dragon". The Smothers Brothers wonderful variety show was pulled from the air as it too was controversial.

I'm finding that a lot of the music of my younger days still has relevance.

People like Spiro Agnew had doubts about The Archies' "Sugar Sugar."

Well, Beer, when a person is suspect of damn near everything, it's a sign that we all should be suspect of him.
