Logic For The Byrds

December 26, 2010

Do you ever wake up with an old song in your head and it stays with you all day? That’s what happened to me yesterday morning when I woke up thinking about The Ballad of Easy Rider by The Byrds.

I have no idea why that particular song would be in my head. I hadn’t listened to any music during the day, hadn’t watched any TV, I hadn’t been thinking about the movie or the band. I opened my eyes and the song was just there. And it stayed there all day. The only thing that makes the song stand out as possibly unique is that it’s my favorite song by The Byrds.

Weird?

The Ballad of Easy Rider
by Roger McGuinn

The river flows, it flows to the sea, wherever that river goes that’s where I want to be.
Flow river flow.
Let your waters wash down, take me from this road to some other town.

All he wanted was to be free, and that’s the way it turned out to be.
Flow river flow.
Let your waters wash down, take me from this road to some other town.

Flow river flow, past the shaded tree.
Go river, go. Go to the sea.
Flow to the sea.

The river flows, it flows to the sea, wherever that river goes that’s where I want to be.
Flow river flow.
Let your waters wash down, take me from this road to some other town.

Unrelated. Does anyone out there speak Spanish because I have some choice words for La Nina I’d like to share and have translated!

For Minnesota and much of the USA, the effects of La Nina are most pronounced in winter. La Nina winters have a statistical bias toward being colder than average in the Upper Midwest. Winters can also trend snowier in Minnesota, especially when compared to El Nino winters like last year.

33.4″ of snow makes this the snowiest December in Minnesota history.

    Nope. Not weird. Fun!

    I wake up with a song stuck in my head nearly every day. I keep track and post the playlists on youtube.
