Where have all those days gone?

    Is it possible to completely forget a song that you loved with all your heart for years? When I accidentally came across "get Together" by YOUNGBLOODS  on Youtube, my heart skipped several beats. I hated myself for not having remembered it for some 40 years.

    This version, I think, was at an anti-nuke rally organized by Jesse Colin Young and had Steven Stills and Graham Parson singing too.  The spirit of the song and the affinity very discernible on the stage made my eyes well up and spill over. To atone the unforgivable lapse, I listened to the song some 30 times back to back and am still doing it 10 times a day.

    I even sent off an email to Jesse Colin Young  and am patiently waiting for an answer.

    Has this happened to you? Have you forgotten a dear song for years and had a chance to hear it perchance and were drowned in nostalgia?

      All the time. I think its pretty cool you emailed JCY!

      (I love so many of the songs by that group of musicians and SO many others as well!
      Sea of Joy by Steve Winwood, I'll never get tired of.
      I predict the farther away we get from that truly amazing era the more precious so many songs will become for many good reasons.)

      "Come on people now
      smile on your brother…"  and remind us of some more great songs with messages for all times!

      Thanks, Thirdmilleniun, for reminding us about that great song and sharing your find on Youtube!

      PS Maybe we need an anti-war movement to perk up again, considering what we are really fighting for. Oil, mineral resources … conquest? We need to protect and preserve or own and other democratic-based nations… not fight  for purposes of conquest / wealth (especially not in the name of some false noble cause! ) Seriously!

    Love is but a song we sing
    Fears' the way we die
    You can make the mountains ring
    Or make the angels cry
    Though the dove is on the wing
    And you may not know why

    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    And try to love one another right now

    Some may come and some may go
    He will surely pass
    When the one that left us here
    Returns for us at last
    We are but a moment's sunlight
    Fading in the grass

    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another right now
    [ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/jesse-colin-you … yrics.html ]
    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another right now

    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another right now

    If you hear the song I sing
    You will understand, listen
    You hold the key to love and fear
    All in your trembling hand
    Just one key unlocks them both
    It's there at your command

    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another right now

    Come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another right now

    I said, come on people now
    Smile on your brother
    Everybody get together
    Try to love one another right now
    Right now, right now

    Following the shadows of the skies
    Or are they only figments of my eyes?
    And I'm feeling close to where the race is run
    Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

    Once the door swings open into space
    And I'm already waiting in disguise
    Or is it just a thorn between my eyes?
    Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

    Having trouble coming through
    Through this concrete, blocks my view
    And it's all because of you
    Or is it just a thorn between my eyes?
    Waiting in our boats to set sail, sea of joy

    Now that he has no sense of destination
    Now he's running for the love of speed
    When the child goes bad it's no cause for celebration
    Like Jimmy Dean he don't talk back to me

    Failures as fathers, Mothers to chaos
    No baby, no baby, no baby no

    CHORUS
    Hallo humans can you feel me thinking
    I assume you're seeing everything I'm thinking
    Hallo humans nothing starts tomorrow
    I'm the baby now

    Baby (repeat to end of chorus)
    (getting)
    (care) (talking)
    (well)
    (thinking) (walk)
    (lost)
    (found)

    Baby Universe
    Baby Universe
    Baby Universal

    (Talking well) (Talking well)

    A speck of dust just settled in my eye
    It doesn't matter I've seen everything anyway

    Failures as fathers, Mothers to chaos
    No baby, no baby, no baby no…

        Hi Kathryn
        You are wonderful. Steve Winwood has always been a favorite. I think the best thing about the 60s and the 70s is that EVERYBODY sang well and each of the 1000s of songs was good in some way. Chirpy Chirpy Cheep cheep was as refreshing as Alone Again Naturally was profound. Songs like Whiter Shade of Pale never cease to amaze one for their music as well as words. I have a Question and Answer book in Amazon Kindle on music of the era.

        Thank you

          - love Procol Harum.
          "Procol Harum: British rock band formed in 1967. They contributed to the development of progressive rock, and by extension, symphonic rock. Their best-known recording is their 1967 single "A Whiter Shade of Pale". Although noted for its baroque and classical influence, Procol Harum's music also embraces the blues, R&B and soul." Wikipedia
          Robin Trower is still alive and well and giving concerts which fans love! I saw him in Ventura a few years ago and in Long Beach too.
          Found the LP Twice Removed From Yesterday, which I had never heard, at the Good Will. Love finding oldies but goodies in thrift stores!

    I bet I am much younger than you, but I listen to music from various times. the latest songs to those very old ones before I was born. I never forget any of my favorites, evergreen tree, yesterday once more, sealed with a kiss, ... Maybe I still need to put in time, but I really appreciate you made that email.

    i got a million records. I have records that people drop off without even telling me. My record collection has gotten bigger without even trying. I have all genres and eras. I blast out my neighborhood every so often with Hendrix or Cream. They put up with it politely. My son in-law comes over to play my 1950's drum set. Occasionally I break out my Fender. They are used to all the racket. Here is my lyrics contribution: Sometimes I can't this tune out of my head even though it is from some by-gone era...

    "Don't Let It Bring You Down"

    Old man lying
    by the side of the road
    With the lorries rolling by,
    Blue moon sinking
    from the weight of the load
    And the buildings scrape the sky,
    Cold wind ripping
    down the alley at dawn
    And the morning paper flies,
    Dead man lying
    by the side of the road
    With the daylight in his eyes.

    Don't let it bring you down
    It's only castles burning,
    Find someone who's turning
    And you will come around.

    Blind man running
    through the light
    of the night
    With an answer in his hand,
    Come on down
    to the river of sight
    And you can really understand,
    Red lights flashing
    through the window
    in the rain,
    Can you hear the sirens moan?
    White cane lying
    in a gutter in the lane,
    If you're walking home alone.

    Don't let it bring you down
    It's only castles burning,
    Just find someone who's turning
    And you will come around.

    Don't let it bring you down
    It's only castles burning,
    Just find someone who's turning
    And you will come around.

      Neil's in-and-out routine  into CSN used to be  a matter for delicious discussion those days. Ha, those were the days!
