Music - Thunderclap Newman, Something In The Air

Fun Facts:

Thunderclap Newman is not the name of the guy who did the song. It's the name of the group who did the song. I know, very confusing.

It has a little bit of honky-tonk piano, and the name "Thunderclap" in conjunction with it is apt, because it has a sound I can only describe as ozoney.



It was released in 1969, the year of my birth. It is a damn good driving song. Especially if you have no idea where you're going, and can take your time getting there.

Call out the instigator
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolutions here
And you know it's right
And you know that it's right
We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

    After almost twenty years since my discovery - and almost *forty* since its release, still *the* desert-island
    rock anthem/soulmate in my domain, filling me with exalted humanist hope as surely the thousandth time as the first:

    We have got to get it together
    We have got to get it together -
    Now...

    Disclaimer:

    Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
