Music Links – Songs from 1970

Continuing on yesterday’s theme…

I’m not the only one who thought the 1970 Temptations classic “Ball of Confusion” could apply today.  There are a number of different Youtube video clips people put together using the song as backdrop.   Here is one, but there are many:

For “America Communicate With Me” by Ray Stevens (also a 1970 tune):

Another Ray Stevens song that gives a sense of hope, “Everything Is Beautiful,” (also a 1970 song — the ideas still inspire, even if one doesn’t agree with the religious theme):

And one of my favorites, Joe South had a 1970 hit with “Walk a Mile In My Shoes.”  Alas, while his 1969 grammy winning classic “Games People Play” is in Youtube (as well as some of his other hits), only covers of “Walk a Mile” are available.  But this one by Coldcut connects that song with current events as well:
