One of Pete Seegers better known "protest" songs. He wrote some great music such as If I Had A Hammer, Kisses Sweeter Than Wine and the Byrds hit Turn, Turn, Turn where I think the words have a biblical origin and a song often played on Children's Favourites, Little Boxes mad famous by Burl Ives.

The lyrics of the 'Turn, turn, turn' song were inspired by the Bible.  Ecclesiastes chapter 3

Oz, there are several ... I knew some and and looked up others.

 

'Writing on the wall' written by Sam Smith for the Bond film 'Spectre'. The title is from Daniel chapter 3

 

'Hallelujah' written by Leonard Cohen, has some strange lyrics, but it is thought to refer to David the Psalmist playing music for King Saul.  Also the song seems to mention the cutting of Samson's hair by Delilah!

 

'Where is the love' by the Black eyed peas mentions 'turning the other cheek' which are Jesus' words about how Christians are supposed to treat people who treat them badly

 

'By the rivers of Babylon' Boney M  This is about the time the Israelites were in captivity in Babylon and were singing songs about their real homeland in Jerusalem (Zion)

 

'Gangster's paradise' by Coolio starts with words from Psalm 23

 

The song '40 ' by U2 is taken directly from Psalm 40

 

I'm sure there are more but I think this will do :)

I was a massive fan of Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon and Queen. What great songwriters. Also The Bee Gees, used to have a photo of Barry on the inside of my wardrobe door, very retro. Before the pandemic went to see Barry (on his own obvs) and Paul Simon. Paul wasn’t that brilliant I have to say but Barry was good. Also Fleetwood Mac who were amazing and very lucky to see all the original members, before Buckingham left. Have seen Queen many times with Freddie, Paul Rodgers and Adam Lambert (he is so good). Rodders of course is the ultimate showman.

Not the originals Mrs B.  Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Peter Green, Danny Kirwan and Jeremy Spencer were the true originals.  The line up you are talking about didn't happen until mid 70's - a mere 47 years ago!!!!

Ooh sorry second originals. Mid seventies I would have been coming up to 20 so that’s the set up I remember.

I wonder why ?

 

There simply aren’t as many people here as there were a few years ago.

 

Some of the people who used to generate/create new material have either disappeared or lost interest.  Other members log in, see nothing new since their last visit, and go away again.  The site drops into a vicious circle.  And that doesn’t generate any new material, nor does it resurrect older posts.

 

The majority of visitors are browsers who might occasionally make a comment;  but mostly they just look at what other people say, and that doesn't move the site forwards.

Haven't seen anything of Eyeupmeducks for a while.  Sent him a couple of e-mails over Christmas and new year.  No response.  Hoping he's ok.  If you read this John geeuz a shout.

Still feeling crap and not 100% at the moment, I try to look in every day and post something I think is of interest just to keep the site ticking over, as it used to say on my school reports, "Must try harder"

I’ve been thinking where’s everybody gone for a couple of days, (obvs we’ve all been busy!) have collected my seed potatoes this morning which are now sitting in egg trays ready to chit. 40 Charlottes to be divided between 5 blue IKEA bags in March. Also some Red Baron and Centurion onions, some of which I will put in my polytunnel next to the garlic which is doing well now. Too cold and wet to plant any outside at the moment.
