"How Many Seas Must A White Dove Sail.."

 I bet YP gets this wind themed song in a milli second?

Robert Zimmerman and two lads from the Rolling Stones at Live Aid.  Have you heard their new album Hackney Diamonds? It's brilliant.

So what is 'Blowin In The Wind' about?  "What's it all about Alfie?" That was a hit for Cilla Black.

Is it a kite, it's staring us in the face..?  Answers on a postcard or in the comments box please!

Only 44 wind theme songs to go.  I am joking, I think?


  1. A song which is just as relevant for our times - is it not?

  2. Bob Dylan wrote this song a year before I was born and like you say TM -just as relevant for our times. Thanks.

  3. We heard one track on the radio today, from "Hackney Diamonds" it...looking forward to hearing the rest.
    The first single I bought was by the Rolling Stones!!

  4. Apparently "Hackney Diamonds" is a reference to when someone breaks a car windscreen with a brick and your left with the diamonds GZ. Check out Lady Gaga and the Rolling Stones special "Hackney Diamonds " launch concert on You Tube. Just shows your never too old to rock n roll. Thanks.

  5. You could show slow drone footage of the ruined streets of Gaza with this timeless song as the soundtrack but I am afraid that the random and vengeful bombing would not stop...
    "How many more Gaza babies must die
    Before the talking begins?
    The answer my friend is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind."

  6. Your Gaza verse would be very appropriate YP.

  7. It is a song about oppression. It is a song about people who can turn a blind eye to oppression. How long can they continue to do that? The answer, my friend is blowing in the wind.

  8. Great explanation of the songs lyrics Debby. Thanks.


Seconds Out. Round Two.

 I beat the cats 4 2 last night.  But something had been digging in 2 of the parsnips and carrots 🥕 barrels. Thanks for you comments and ad...
