Random thoughts on art, technology, stuff, and occasionally Real Estate: Friday Classics: If I Had A Hammer

Friday Classics: If I Had A Hammer

What the world needs now is some classic early 1960s vintage Folk Music.  Go ahead and sing along:


Here is a link to the lyrics and a little of the amazing history of this song:


When Pete Seeger first wrote the lyrics, they were considered "radical" and the song didn't become popular until Peter, Paul and Mary revived it several years later.

Pretty funny how that was considered radical.  I hadn't heard that song in so many years, thanks.

Cheryl...love the lyrics.  The history was very interesting.  When I was singing along to Peter, Paul and Mary's version I was oblivious to what had taken place before. 

Thanks, Kathleen

My speakers don't work, but that's ok, the speakers in my mind do. I can sing along anyway. Private karaoke I guess. How about the Limelighters next week?

Jim:  I'm coming across some Limeliter reunion stuff, still haven't found any original 60s clips.  They do sound good, though.  Here's their website with the current group members;  http://www.limeliters.com/
