First, I want to tell all of my beloved blogger pals that I almost had a seizure trying to bring you this delightful video. I once enjoyed it but I forgot about the flash in the beginning....this epileptic will not be watching this again for a while. :) lol But I did not seize so it is time to explain this song's place in Castles Made of Sand. Part 2 of the the book starts out with a quote as part one did before it. Of course, the quote is "Strange days have found us..." Part Two also begins with January of 1967 and goes on to January of 1970. For those of you remotely familiar with the '60's, I am sure you can understand why I chose that quote for these tumultuous years. We have the summer of love, Monterey Pop Festival, the '67 march on the pentagon (Yeah, that peaceful one...), the summer of hate, the assasinations of MLK and RFK, the riot in Chicago, Woodstock, Altamont, the Manson murders....Strange days, indeed. It was really a total no-brainer for me when it came time to pick a lyric (any lyric...) that would sum up those times. I didn't even have to play eannie meanie minie mo...and if I spelled that wrong, friggin' sue me. Hahaha Enjoy this delightfully strange song from my delightfully strange Morrison (Yeah, the rest of the band is there too), and if you have an aversion to flashing scenes....turn your head. It worked for me.
