I really like the Donovan song, haven't heard it before. 'Catchy' rhythm, foottapper, body mover, thanks Tom :).

Duke Ellington - Double Check Stomp (i) (1930)

I just read that Mr. Ellington was born in 1899 which makes him 5 years younger than my grandfather.

What will Greta think of it? Did she gave permission?

Peter Tosh - Glass House (1983)

You build your world on lies and illusions
But you never know that
This is the conclusion
No chance no hope for those
Who kept it a-goin'
Cause you never know that

I just listened to nanning's "Martine Bijl - Er Zijn Daar Geen Meikevers Meer (nl) (1974)" (November 4), found the lyrics and ran Google Translate on them, and read the translation as I listened a 2nd and 3rd time.  It's a pretty song to listen to, and very sad.  Thanks.

Thanks blum and Tor. And thank you Tor for really listening to Martine Bijl. Powerful lyrics. Says a lot about how much of living nature is gone in the last century alone. Never to return. Very sad indeed. It is, alas, reality.

I wonder about the part where she sings that it is an old tradition. Any idea if that is made up or actually something people did. Why would you catch may bugs?

It´s mainly a song about country changing to city.

Popcorn led me to Switched On Bach
Specifically

and then

I remember playing my new (just released) Switched On Bach record at high volume on my decent stereo in my university dorm room.  The outside wall was mostly a steel sheet and acted like a speaker (noticeable on the outside).  It was quite glorious (if you liked this sort of music...)

I also once read to all, via an amplified mike, the last chapter of Through the Looking Glass, word for word backwards [Chapter XII. Which Dreamed it? ] (from the end - starting with "END THE: Dream a but. It is, what, Life?"). [I must have been popular ...  ::)] [I didn't need drugs...]

It´s mainly a song about country changing to city.

Sorry kassy, I missed your question.
I think it is genuine. Why would she make up the part where she sings about her father's memories?

I disagree with your synopsis. I think it is mainly a song about the disappearance of all kinds of wildlife.
refrein: "Er was zoveel om je heen, en dat is allemaal verdwenen, en geen macht op deze Aarde brengt het weer"

Already so much lost in 1973! I was 7yo so that was my 'normal' but now I know that most was already gone  :'(. Having read "The unnatural history of the sea" by Malcolm Roberts was the same sort of eyeopener. History in perspective -> Better world view :).

Normally I do not like covers, unless the versions are either very similar (so they sound the same) or very different (like they are two different songs)
First case Words Of Love:

Buddy Holly

The Beatles

Second case The River Is Wide

I wonder about the part where she sings that it is an old tradition. Any idea if that is made up or actually something people did. Why would you catch may bugs?

It´s mainly a song about country changing to city.

Sorry kassy, I missed your question.
I think it is genuine. Why would she make up the part where she sings about her father's memories?

I disagree with your synopsis. I think it is mainly a song about the disappearance of all kinds of wildlife.
refrein: "Er was zoveel om je heen, en dat is allemaal verdwenen, en geen macht op deze Aarde brengt het weer"

The song starts and ends in the city and while it is a lament our protagonist laments she cannot catch as much may bugs as her dad which is kind of an interesting angle.

Sorry kassy, I don't understand your text.

With the parking lot reference she is, I think, blaming urbanisation, private-car-love and perhaps the effects of modern and progress.

I am old fashioned. I wish humans today were like those from before the seventies. From before supermarkets everywhere.

Buddy Holly! Nice! I also like The Grassroots, thanks Tom.

Gala - Freed From Desire (1996)



And a nice Netherlandic cover (but from which original?):

Spaan & Vermeegen - Stille Willem (nl) (1981)

Not familiar with that one.
I mostly like songs that remind me of when I was a child or in school, like this one

Baby Take Me In Your Arms - Jefferson

Answer: it is the tune of "Love Of The Common People"

Nice song from 1969 from Jefferson. I notice that it is from "Anus records" haha
