Peace, Love, and Freedom. These were themes of the music from the subcultures of the 60s and 70s. Sure, a lot of these so-called hippies grew up to be uber capitalists, but this is not a history lesson. AudioPerfecta is all about the music, and the hippies had a lot of great, feel-good tunes. This happy hippy music inspired a generation to fight against the establishment and protest of the Vietnam War. Again, the hippies became the establishment, and most of them supported the Gulf Wars, so hypocrites. But again, music!
I just offended every boomer out there, oh well. Just listen to the music. And oh, so much music from so many artists. Happy Hippy Music features The Doors, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Byrds, The Kinks, CCR, Arlo Guthrie, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Joni Mitchell, The Guess Who, Jefferson Airplane, and many many more! This week’s playlist is a virtual cornucopia of some of the most popular artists from the 60s and 70s. And they’re all singing about Peace, Love, and Freedom.
The spirit of the hippy movement is alive and well with Happy Hippy Music. Far out, man!
You want more happy hippy music? You got it!
Perhaps you’re wondering “where’s this song, or that song?” Well, folks, I might have already got you covered. A little more than a year ago, I published a playlist called Feelin’ Groovy with a similar theme. They’re all feel good, groovy hits from the 60s.
Speaking of groovy music, this week’s featured article will be extremely groovy. In a cover vs original, I tackle the song “Woodstock.” Who did it best? Joni Mitchell? Crosby Stills and Nash? Or maybe someone else? The only way to find out is to come back this Saturday. Whoever did Woodstock the best, it’ll be a groovy time.
Peace and love, everyone.
