Bob Dylan isn't a hippie, man. And Led Zeppelin? Duuuuuude.

But there's some good stuff on that list ... I just think you should have called this the "Sixties and Seventies Music Appreciation" thread.

I love Joni Mitchell. She's classic. Ditto Simon & Garfunkel.

The Dead do nothing for me, although I appreciate American Beauty and the one song I love by them is "Box of Rain."

I think if you said The Beatles post-Rubber Soul, you would've been dead on.

google//wikipedia the original woodstock. there's your list.

hippies, yeah. important phase, some good music, but i'm glad we've moved on.

one of my favorite Bono quotes is about grunge being hippie-music warmed over. a bit overgeneralized, but mainly dead-on.

When I think hippie music, my mind immediately races to psychedelic music of all times.

Olivia Tremor Control

Why are you glad we've moved on?

To piggyback on the previous question, moved on from what? Moved on from that style of music, or the "phase"?

The world could use some hippie power right about now.

corianderstem's got me wondering what a hippie really is/was, but they probably need and a tangible connection to the 1967 music scene, an indisputable peace & love ethos, and some sort of enduring passion. In other words: Neil Young.



Interesting how CSNY and Buffalo Springfield are mentioned...also Neil! Chrome Dreams II, his new album is also full of hippie ideals and imagery: trees, spirit, love...the sky! Amazing album, and it's completely relevant.

Two of the songs clock-in at over 14 minutes (extended hippie love). Anyway, I especially love the lyrics to one of them, No Hidden Path:

Sometimes when I go walkin'
Among the tall trees
I feel the light comin' down on me
Under moon, under sun
I feel the chosen one
Through the mist, come walkin' here with me

And the leaves on the ground
Make a rustling sound
In the wind now blowing in my face
It's that cool wind again
And I feel my missing friend
Whose counsel I can never replace

Show me the way and I'll follow you today
Show me the way and I'll follow you today

Show me the way
No more darkness. No more wasted time
Show me the way
Let me stay here with this heart of mine
And with you I feel no hidden path
No hidden path
No hidden path
No hidden path
No hidden path
No hidden path

How you change, how you change
And how you rearrange
Everything that touches me

Now you're her, now you're her
And she's sleeping here with me
Everything that touches me

Ocean sky, sea of blue
Let the sand wash over you
Giving all that you can give

Will the northern lights still play
As we walk our distant days?
Giving all that we can give

Show me the way and I'll follow you today
Show me the way and I'll follow you today

Show me the way
There's a cold wind, blowin' through my mind
Show me the way
But I'm holdin' on to the threads of time
And with you I feel no hidden path
No hidden path
No hidden path
No hidden path

Will the northern lights still play as we walk our distant days?
Ocean sky, sea of blue, let the sun wash over you

Some good music is timeless.
