Darren -- Yeah, I love how all that stuff is going on at the same time. It reminded me of watching Brian's band do Smile with the whole stage in motion.


Jackson Browne began singing folk music in Los Angeles clubs when he was a teenager. He also joined the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band for awhile.

Two songs from one of my favorite albums: Late for the Sky (1974).

"The Late Show"



"Before the Deluge"

Judas Priest doing their best folky version of Diamonds and Rust which I prefer over their metal version.

Verden.

Folk.

There's the rub.

Whenever I hear the word "folk" I am instantly transported back to primary school, when folk dancing was, for some bizarre reason, part of the curriculum.  Every year come the winter months we would be herded into the gymnasium, where we would grasp each others sweaty, marmite smeared little hands, and then dance like it was 1644.  While this sounds idyllic, being taller than all the other kids and with an unfortunate (but well ahead of my time) mullet, there was always the risk of being left standing around feeling like a prize fool if the numbers were odd.

Just to further warp our young minds, they encouraged us to dress up as ridiculous things like superheroes and nursery rhyme characters and peanuts, and make us perform these ritualistic little dance routines at things they called "Socials".  These events were anything but social.  

So I'll try my best not to have flashbacks of that "Holly Hobbie" outfit with the dead flowers, and how that night I didn't get picked much because my stupid hat made me even taller, and the dead flower stems stabbed Paul Price twice in the eye but he never believed it was an accident.


On that hearty and healthy little memory, lets have some folk inspired Led Zeppelin, who are covering a Joan Baez song here.




Weezer, from their self titled album.




The Scaffold, with "Lily the Pink".  Very cute and funny, and what a line up of stud muffins, I must say.

For those not aware, that, er, "stud muffin" on the left is Mike McGear, born Peter Michael McCartney (and closely related to a very famous Sir...).

Some of the comments on the YouTube link for 'Lily the Pink' are hilarious.

"I hate it when boy bands like these try to get by on their looks...."

"Roger McGough, a man who knew the Rutles"

"I bet Paul's jealous, writing rubbish like Hey Jude and the Long and Winding Road while his brother is coming out with this genius."

Paul must have been so jealous of Mike's looks!

My folky votes:

The Everly Brothers were always folky no matter what they were singing.



Thanks Verden!

t -- That Grass Roots song immediately brought to mind Barry McGuire and "The Eve of Destruction". And now I see it was written by P. F. Sloan.

I don't know if these young people ever had any connection to folk music, aside from listening to Bob Dylan, but they sound kinda folky to me at times.

Lord Huron, "La Belle Fleur Sauvage", Strange Trails, 2015 [lovely wildflower]



Fleet Foxes, "The Plains/Bitter Dancer", Helplessness Blues, 2011
