Side Tracks

My mother used to call this "long haired" music, which was strange to me because it was after the hippies had already arrived on the scene. For most in this generation this piece will forever bring to mind the movie "2001" (something Strauss could have never imagined) but that's certainly not a bad thing--Kubrick's movie was decades ahead of its time...maybe more based on the current direction of the space program.



While we're on the European theme I thought of this tune, again made more famous by another famous movie. These folks were not considered 'cool' back in the day, but they sure could sing.

It's a shame John Denver died in that plane crash when he did. He had talent beyond the Hee Haw crowd.

He was a good golfer, too. Bitten by the bug, as they say.
