I’m back at work after a short hiatus of staying home sick. And it’s a Friday. And I have a headache. So I’m not going to bore you faithful readers with something long and drawn-out, because I don’t see the point. Instead I am treating you to one of music’s most beautiful and meaningful songs of the sixties.

The song, “A Change Is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke became the anthem for the American Civil Rights Movement. It has also been covered by around 31 other musicians. Below is the original. I just love the string section. And Sam Cooke is one of my all-time favorite musicians. Have a good listen and a great weekend!

Also, I can’t resist not including this too. Here is Al Green’s version. I love it. He can really wail.
