Council Submissions June 30, 2010

Last week, I featured the Monkees’ “Daydream Believer.” “Daydream Believer” was written by John Stewart. Stewart had been a member of the Kingston Trio (though he joined late, well after Tom Dooley, which was based on true story), but later had a hit with Gold. As with some other songs on his comeback album, “Gold” was backed by Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. So too was “Midnight Wind.” “Midnight Wind” is like Billy Joel’s “Only the good die young,” but without the snarkiness.

Two notes: I forgot to congratulate Council member Rhymes with Right for his 5th anniversary on the council last week. And I’d like to welcome back Wolf Howling after an extended absence.
