Recycling History - Courtesy of Tom Paxton and Arlo Guthrie

May 07 2009 Published by under Humor

I just playing an album I haven't listened to for a while, and I was struck by a sudden and painful sense of deja vu. As it turns out, the source of the feeling is available on YouTube, so I thought I'd share.

    Hadn't heard Arlo's version before, and it's just as good as Tom's original. And the graphics with that You-Tube clip are great. Thanks for refreshing my memories and bringing up the current relevance.

  • I have that song in my iPod. It really makes me laugh now!

  • Sean McCorkle says:

    At one concert that I attended, Paxton referred to this as one of his "short shelf-life songs".
    I wonder what he thinks about its recurrent relevance today?

    Thanks for the treat, Mike.
    Most appropriate.
