A Wind Song About A Girl He Had Not Yet Met.

"Catch The Wind" was made famous by Scottish singer Donovan.  

I saw him at Glastonbury music festival in 1989 and I have seen him walking about here in West Cork  or even North Cork even, where he now resides.

The song is about unrequited love.  Even about  his future wife who he met a year after he wrote this song perhaps?

A timeless folk classic me thinks!

Another song about the wind tomorrow.  There's only about 43 songs to go.😊

  3. Love Donovan . I have a few of his CDs. His voice is much more mellow than Dylan. Didn't realise he was Scottish. Lucky you seeing him at Glastonbury. Times to remember

  4. Universal Soldier is my favourite of his Linda. There's some good recent YouTube videos showing him doing interviews and singing. Glastonbury 1989 was an incredible experience. A canvas tent city for 4 days. It only cost 28 Pounds. It's over 200 nowadays and sells out in twenty minutes. Thanks.

  5. Sorry I haven't been commenting Dave. As you know I have trouble listening to music clips so I can't add my opinions. I still read all your posts though.

  6. I totally understand JayCee. Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. Music is one of my passions and it's too wet to write about anything gardening related at the moment. I have a big bag of Daffodils lying on top of the freezer waiting to be planted and also for someone else but it's just too wet.

  7. The first song I ever performed in public. Not sure whether to be flattered when some said I was as good as D.

  9. I loved that song and learnt to play and sing it in my teens. Another Donovan song that has always stuck in my head is "The Ballad of Geraldine". I bought "Hurdy Gurdy Man" when the single was first released and I also loved "To Susan on The West Coast Waiting".

    1. Oh yes. That's a good 'un too - a poignant anti-war song.

Texting Instead Of Talking.

 I have noticed people texting each other even when in the same room.  The younger generation are very good at it in fact. When we went to T...
