Hummingbirds and Breezes

Posted by shanoah on November 6, 2008

Oh, I know exactly what you mean, Sean. I’ve spent the last 8 years complaining about Bush, and being about to have an attitude of ‘well, I didn’t vote for him, and I don’t see why anyone in their right minds would have…’.

Now I’ll have to fall back on blaming the Republicans for not presenting a good candidate in 2008, which is trickier ground to stand on. Hopefully Obama won’t screw things up too much, though.

It’s hard to imagine him screwing things up worse then Bush, anyways. Though he probably will have to make some unpopular decisions just to get us out of the current mess.

Today I felt like playing two popular songs from the 70’s you are likely to recognize:

Summer Breeze

This song reached #6 on the charts, and it’s not that surprising, because it’s a good song. The strange thing, really is that a number of Seals & Crofts songs never made it to cd. This one did, but I probably still have a tape called “Sudan Village” that just never got reissued in cd form.


I can’t really say this is their second big hit, as that would probably be “Diamond Girl”, but this was still popular. And I like this one better.
