Woodstock had some damn great music but Monterey pop festival in 67 is where the real good music was playing.
Great song. I think there is s need for protesting for our freedom back.
Hippies aren't dead, just look at the environmenta l movement. The piece of equipment you are using right now came out of the hippy movement
Yeah Joni Mitchell went on some talk show instead of going to Woodstock and that is probably a decision that haunts her to this day. But what a terrific song she wrote about it. Hard to believe a person so young at the time could write such a powerful song. Simply fantastic
Another dream shattered.
Certainly seemed different then,but we were young and had lots of ideals, all of which have been knocked down for one reason or another. Now I realize we were never going to turn over the ruling elite! Oh well still here to tell the tale.
Great song!! By a soild band!! Guatir playing is great too !
This song was written by Joni Mitchell. She wrote it to sing at Woodstock. For some reason she never made it to Woodstock. It's a great song.
Seen them in 2005. It was raining and when they got to the part "the bomber death planes" the sky opened up and the sun shone through. Truly a life changing experience!
Classic years "The 70's"
We are stardust We are golden

I wouldn't want to be there, this group wasn't there either lol

Our country was free enough to actively seek truth. Are there some freedom loving truth seekers out there? I think I found it.
arkhammer7
Would have loved to have been there
Closed minded
It was fun man
MPS49a! Than don't listen to it!!
Hippie BS. What has the generation contributed- n o t very much
My cousin was killed there in his sleeping bag and they were bringing in water and tracker trailor drove over an innocent teenager so sad
It's such a shame that the biggest contribution of this era is the drug culture. It started with so much hope.
5xs
yeah but 3xs if you play the songs we ask for maybe they wouldn't be so bitchy
These never meant as much to me as they do today even though I wasn't born until 75, these days I feel more and more drawn to getting back to the basic freedoms.

"Sweet is the lore of nature.
Our meddling intellect misshapes the natural form of things. We murder to dissect"
This is the mantra of a generation that sold out and is looking to cannibalize the next generation of victims of their ponzi pyramid scheme. The call it paying it forward. The reality is they are billing it forward. Time for a new revolution.
I think masters percussion needs to look again at the ideals of my generation, sorry we dont have sit in and war protests to the same proportions, but failure has an emotional tax, and you'll see who holds the reigns of revolution when the time comes. Its like a guerilla war, we get smaller, the man gets bigger, we get faster he gets slower, we get smarter, he gets dumber. Listen to immortal technique!
Very the song especially in 2012
Such a brilliant song. Deep lyrically and just flat out a great song performed by those four incredible musicians.
We had such high ideals,How cld we FF''DD up so bad as a generation! Now look how our children and grandchildre n turned out.

And I dreamed I saw the bombers
Riding shotgun in the sky

Directly from Joni Mitchell.com
Written by Joni Mitchell.... . . W O W !
My favorite song!
you are correct about the lyrics louis -- good song tho
lmliro
sewlutions: agreed. The Pandora lyrics are not correct in that part of the song. "I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes riding shotgun in the sky" is probably correct.
CSN classic vocal harmonies. Lov'em Great music makers.
Kind of amazing ain't it. All that time ago we were asking for the same thing kids are asking for today, in almost the same words, still no results. No Garden but a really neat oil spill. Makes this chunk of billion year old carbon tired and hurts my mind to think about all that time wasted. Brother Vet, Peace to you my man.
Billion Year Old Carbon would be a great name for a band.
rpatton19
"...farmers just play his ridin' shotgun in the sky"? How about: "I dreamed I saw the bomber jetplanes ridin' shotgun in the sky..."
I left for Viet Nam in January of 1969 at 18 years old...this jam and the "time" of everything around it is my history....p e a c e and music forever!!
lmliro
...truly defines a momentous instant in time...
which1spink9
I love these lyrics. They're perfect for the era, but timeless as well.
Billion year old carbon is right and actually correct. Although the Carbon could be older. But OK with poetic license.
parker.k121
Timeless lyrics, liting harmonies, a brilliant musical image of an era of change.
sewlutions
and is billion year old carbon right? I don't wanna think so...
Yeah, I think whoever does the lyrics transcribes what they think they hear. I mean seriously have you ever seen "unintelligi b l e " in sheet music lyrics?
sewlutions
'And I dreamed I saw the farmers Just play his ' ridin' shotgun in the sky Turning into butterflies above our nation Sorry that's not right. And it matters. I dreamed I saw the bomber jet planes riding shotgun in the sky
It's my generation. THANK YOU!!
Did you know that Momma Cass got these guys together at her home in Laurel Canyon?
Woodstock... . g e t t i n ' back to the land...the rain...the mud...the acid...the shoulder to shoulder people and more people and more rain and...... I was there...this is what the 60s led up to; the high-water mark (remember Altamont a little while later)... I'm glad I grew up (I'm 58 now), but I'm glad I was there to be a part of the moment, part of the watching and waiting
Joni Mitchell can be proud of herself. She gave, and continues to give us so much. Thanks, Joni.
