Small House of Everything

Small House of Everything

 In this age of Trump, Covid, the rise of white nationalism, and the possible demise of democracy, I find is refreshing to look back to the turbulent Sixties, where popular music helped stop a war, bring civil rights to the forefront, attacked bigotry, and pointed out some of our more significant flaws.  Today, we have the late night comedians and the Lincoln Project, as well as Randy Rainbow and other satirists, doing that job for us.  To me, the Sixties were a special time when we could, and did, change the future.  Sadly, many of us lost that zeal as we aged, and greed and self-interest took over.  I still have hope, however, and the younger artists of today are part of that hope.

The link takes you to a compilation of 26 songs from the Sixties.  It's not the greatest compilation, but its a start.  Feel free to link to those songs that inspired you in the comments section.

  1. Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" and Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind" are two favorites.
