This Song Is Our Song

No Comments General

Thanks Pete!  Thanks for all the great music and for making even the most hardened cynic clap and sing along.  If you’ve never heard Pete Seeger play live, find a recording and listen.  And rest assured that whatever the angels were singing before, from now on they’ll all be singing folk songs.

I have long thought that Woody Guthrie’s “This Land Is Your Land” should be the USA’s national anthem.  It’s a song everyone can sing, it’s not pretentious, it’s not about war, it has no specific religious content, and it reflects our independent yet cooperative spirit.  I don’t know what it would take to make this change happen, but I think this video might be a useful tool.
