Saturday Song: El Condor Pasa by Simon and Garfunkel

This song was on one of my first eight-track tapes. After we moved here to Sheridan, Wyoming, when I was in the sixth grade, I sang it at a local talent competition, accompanying myself on the piano. Although I didn’t win, it was a lot of fun. Enjoy, and have a great Saturday.

Saturday Song: Both Sides Now by Judy Collins

Last week, I heard on National Public Radio that Judy Collins and Steve Stills from Crosby, Stills, and Nash have just released a new album together. At one time years ago, they were even romantically involved, according to the report. This song was mentioned, although I doubt it’s on the album. I enjoyed listening to it in 1967 when it came out. It was on one of my first eight-track tapes when I was growing up in Arizona and played many times on a Tucson radio station. Enjoy, and have a great Saturday.

Saturday Song: Mercedes Benz by Janis Joplin

Thanks to Bruce Atchison for inspiring me to post this. On his blog, he posted another Janis Joplin song. The one I’m posting was on an eight-track I had in the 1960’s. It is kind of a dumb song, but as a kid, I liked it because at the time, my family had two Mercedes Benz. I hope you like it too. Have a great Saturday.
