After reading of David Crosby's death, I started to hum Teach Your Children but R quickly interrupted, no, that's a Graham Nash song. Credit where credit is due.
So instead, Music Is Love, remember. We are all getting older. I almost picked Eight Miles High (he co-wrote that song, yes) but decided no, probably not appropriate, liver transplant and so on.
I am partial to Long Time Gone, myself.ReplyDelete
No matter whose songs he was singing, he made them his. I read once where someone said that in the harmonies that the voice you did not hear- that was David's because it wove so tightly around the others.ReplyDelete
But he sang on "Teach Your Children," so I'd argue that would have been acceptable!ReplyDelete
It was such a sad moment to read that David Crosby had died. His music was so much a part of our lives. Yes, music is love.ReplyDelete
We listened to some of his music last night. Marc will usually 'DJ' a musician in the evening when one passes.ReplyDelete
I have no problem with crediting him for singing Teach your Children - beautifully indeed, but as R said, let's wait for the day you want to honour Graham Nash.ReplyDelete
This song from all those years ago, co-written by David Crosby, came to mind:ReplyDelete
In 1967, during the fall of my freshman year in college, I saw Buffalo Springfield at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. A shock to hear that David Crosby had died yesterday, on what would have been Janis Joplin's 80th birthday.
