GUEST,Kristine Origins: 1960's anti-war song (25) RE: Origins: 1960's anti-war song 05 Sep 05

Has anyone else been having problems getting on the Mudcat site? I have been trying for days, and it gets stuck loading up.

Anyway, I want to thank you all for your insights, suggestions, and opinions. Now that I see all the lyrics, I'm not sure the song completely qualifies for what he's looking for.

As far as me doing his homework concerns...he is also looking for songs, and will ultimately choose what song he wants to work with. Finding the song is just the tip of the iceberg where this assignment is concerned...and I assure you he'll be doing all the rest.

When I do my own assignments, I use all the resources I have which includes the people I know. If he wants me to brainstorm with him about songs I might know that have historical, cultural content - then I don't see the harm in that.

I also disagree with the criticism on the assignment itself. Much of history and culture can be learned from songs...during medieval times it was the bards that carried the news. So what is so wrong about studying American history through the songs that have been created. The way the media hides much of the truth - I would say hearing peoples personal perspectives through songs is a good way to get another side of the picture.

Thanks again,
