Thread Name: Lyr Req: songs about the Kennedy assassination
Subject: RE: Kennedy Assassination
"The Warmth of the Sun" was written by Brian Wilson because of the JFK assassination, though it is not mentioned, and recorded by The Beach Boys. It is about the loss of a friend.
The Kingston Trio changed the setting of "Big Ball in Town" from Nashville to Boston (adding a pretty good JFK impersonation), in celebration of the JFK inaugural.
