Weekend Goodie bag: Darlingside “Woodstock” Cover

This precious little masterpiece here is a genuine cover of a song that helped move a generation, talking about one of the greatest moments in music history. Originally written and performed by Joni Mitchell, the song is her perspective on the famous 1969 music festival, Woodstock. Unable to attend the event, Mitchell wrote the song after hearing all the tales from her boyfriend at the time, Graham Nash, and what she saw on television, which was being blasted around the world. Now a days music festivals are a dime a dozen and in some regard, they lost their true meaning, a weekend where thousands gather to embrace each other and try a find a way to change the future. While most of the population under the age of 13 probably has no idea what I’m talking about, it’s a good sign that bands today are guiding the younger generation in ways to understand the true meaning of music and it’s initial roots. Cheers Darlingside, thanks for reminding us what’s right with the world.
