Wow. I didn't pay enough attention to Steppenwolf. All I remember is Born to be Wild and Magic Carpet Ride. Didn't realize they got political as well. Thanks, ma.

On a different note, I managed to find a download of Monster Mash on the Net, which added spice to last night's Halloween Party. This is a fun video,

But, The Time Warp still takes the prize for the top Halloween Party song,

Are you quite sure that wasn't Nick Sarkozy introducing a touring show of this music group in Paris?

that was all the rage in the late 60s.  If you didn't have an anti-war  (or other political) song, you almost couldn't be considered serious.  Even though a lot of them weren't very good.

I was busy putting baseball cards in the spokes of my bicycle during the late 60s and listening to my sister's Motown and Elvis discs or listening to my Dad singing Tony Bennett and Eddy Arnold (make the world go away...). Local radio options were top 40, country 'n western, or conjunto. Didn't know politics from hot licks. Oh, there was Dan Hicks and his Hot Licks but that was early 70s, I believe.

We're probably close to the same age then.  I just had older brothers and sisters and grew up in California.  As a DJ in the late 70s, I had an affinity for late sixties through early 70s music...

I'm surprised you didn't reference Patsy Cline -- was your mom not a fan?  (even in secret?)

OK, let's kick start this mutha...

Midge Ure - either solo or with Ultravox.  What's your favorite piece and why?

If he can't get your motor running somewhere in his career...you're probably already dead...

Heard Ms. Cline on the radio.

As far as my Mom's secrets... well, they are secrets.

I ain't quite dead yet, but during that era I was in a bit of a fog, pharmaceutically speaking. Was slow to wise up to that second British wave. Sorry.

Came across this this weekend...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DA9PmZo-2jo

Most people don't think about singing when they think about revolutions. But song was the weapon of choice when, between 1986 and 1991, Estonians sought to free themselves from decades of Soviet occupation. During those years, hundreds of thousands gathered in public to sing forbidden patriotic songs and to rally for independence.
