A Blast from the past: Jefferson Airplane's "Volunteers"

Look what's happening out in the streets
Got a revolution Got to revolution
Hey I'm dancing down the streets
Got a revolution Got to revolution
Ain't it amazing all the people I meet
Got a revolution Got to revolution

One generation got old
One generation got soul
This generation got no destination to hold
Pick up the cry

Hey now it's time for you and me
Got a revolution Got to revolution
Come on now we're marching to the sea
Got a revolution Got to revolution
Who will take it from you
We will and who are we
We are volunteers of America


  1. I don't know if I'm starting to sound like my parents and grandparents who despised the new music coming out in the 1960's, preferring the Tommy Dorsey and Sinatra stuff--both fine musicans--and recoiled away from the Airplane, Hendrix and Buffalo Springfield.

    'Cause these days, I prefer the music of the 1960's and 1970's over the homogenized, canned, Madison Avenue tested "muzak" coming out in the 21st Century.

    Good music is good music. It doesn't matter if it's a Mozart piece from the 18th Century or some NWA from the 1980's.

    But a lot of the shit coming out today sounds so boring.
