    Interesting topics today, and fun finding the songs. Love the Roy Orbison song. 🙂

    Elton John – Empty Garden

    (I was thinking of
    picking a song from
    Captain Fantastic and…
    it probably would’ve been

    Tell Me When the Whistle Blows,
    but, then ran across that song
    that I’d never heard before;
    reminding me of my dad.)

    For the year I was born, I’ll mention Daevid Allen, who I only learned of today and I think died this past Friday the thirteenth in September — although I cant find a video to share from the year I was born; someone involved in the first inklings of progressive rock.

    For the year I graduated from high school:

    Kansas – The Wall
    [Not a cover.]

    Boston – Long Time

    (The albums from which the songs originated were made years before the year I graduated, but were still popular. It was a time when people began holding to classic rock, which although these were newish then are part of that category now. [And the Boston song seems prog-related but not very prog.] Disco was fading. Rap and hip-hop were just getting started. New Wave was a thing, too.)
