TEACH YOUR CHILDREN
This was my high school graduation song. It really captured the times in its wisdom about listening to children and parents. I am a critic of the 60s but some of the music was on the money. Crosby, Stills,& Nash were great musicians, although sometimes they wandered out onto the left. They went to another musical level when Neil Young joined them. I think they were doing what a lot of people were trying to do at that time, find their way. The 60s were tremendously disorienting to the country. We haven't recovered yet. Some of the music was visionary and left its mark on music today. And sometimes it celebrated rioting.
