So, let’s say goodbye in good fashion. I didn’t want to overthink this, just did a few songs that jumped into my head… and yes, that is a strange place to be.
First up is a Dylan song, though I’m not featuring his version but the more well-known cover by Joan Baez. I love the version by John Mellencamp, but apparently it is not anywhere on the web. It is worth checking out on the Rough Harvest album.
A very long time ago, there was a band called The Moody Blues. They created some of the most beautiful songs of their time, as well as albums that took you on a musical journey. And guess what, they're still around making good music. This is one of their earliest songs.
An equally long time ago, an English duo by the name of Chad and Jeremy had several hits. This was one of those summer romance ending songs.
" A Summer Song"
I don't know why I thought of this song, but why not? It's beautiful, poignant, fits the theme and is by Steve Winwood. Good enough for me.
"My Love's Leaving"
And sadly now we say goodbye. Who better to say goodbye than... Groucho.
"I'll stay a week or two, I'll stay the summer through
But I am telling you, I must be going"
"Hello, I Must Be Going"
Sniff, sniff... thanks for the memories, Jen. It's been a blast. Hope to see you back in the fall.
