musical commencement advice from our best minds from 40 years ago

by now everyone's heard jim carrey's cozmically funny and wise commencement advice to mum last week. as i browsed through music to play from 40 years ago, i realized a lot of music from 1974 was also intended as good advice to the (then) youth of the world. so, along with excerpts from jim carrey, i'll be playing some of the following advice (find these quotes as you listen along) (here are all the songs):

jim carrey"you can spend your whole life imagining ghosts, worrying about the pathways to the future..." - jim carrey

"you're only dancing on this earth for a short while, and though your dreams may toss and turn you now, they will vanish away like your dad's best jeans..." - cat stevens

"genuflect, show respect, don't forget..." - stealer's wheel

"listen to the lion" - van morrison

"look here brother, who you jivin' with that cosmic debris. don't you waste your time on me." - frank zappa

"you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows..." - bob dylan, harry nilsson, john lennon

"love is a rose but you better not pick it; it only grows when it's on the vine." - neil young

"when the demon is at your door, in the morning it won't be there no more. any major dude will tell you." - steely dan

"whatever gets you to the light, is alright, it's alright." - john lennonjoni mitchell

"you know two heads are better than one." - joni mitchell

"to appreciate we deactivate. he knows who goes within himself..." - donovan

"when you were young and your heart was an open book you used to say live and let live..." - paul mccartney

"new music, sweet music, can lighten us, can brighten the world, can save us." - cat stevens

"back when i was young my hope was strong but in time blew it all to hell. if i thought i knew what was good for you, i'd have gone and done it for myself." - todd rundgren

70 Years Young: Happy Birthday Joni Mitchell

Joni~~Song

 

Singer, songwriter, poet, painter, activist...it's tough to think of something Joni Mitchell hasn't done, and done exceedingly well.

With one of the most haunting and recognizable voices ever since she burst on the music scene decades ago,  she made her mark early and kept right on going. 

So we'll take this week and next to pay tribute to one of the most unique and prolific artists of our time.

Only at the Wildflowers Cafe.

love songs from 1973

ya know what? 1973 was a great year for maria muldaurlove songs.

this week you'll hear the up-tempo, live, somewhat rocking version of joni mitchell's "you turn me on, i'm a radio," and maria muldaur's [pictured] ultra sensuous "don't you feel my leg."

both simon and garfunkel sang classic love songs, as did john, paul, george, and ringo (all individually).

other great love song singers 40 years ago: stevie wonder, the whobob dylanharry nilssoncat stevens, and van morrison.

here are the songs.
