    A track that celebrates life from a guy that didn't get much of it. Peace mate.

    Good deal! And since it's Notre Dame, I am all Badgers this weekend!

    Hope all is well.

    The earliest known version of this American folk song came out in 1858. Likely covered countless times since.

    This cover by David Mumford is pretty chilled out,



    For a contrast check out the version from the WW1 movie 1917

    50 years ago to the day the Bangladesh liberation movement started. After a few months of struggle. A benefit concert organised by Ravi Shankar & George Harrison was held at Madison Square Garden in Aug of 1971

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Co...for_Bangladesh

    The event was the first-ever benefit of such a magnitude, and featured a supergroup of performers that included Harrison, fellow ex-Beatle Ringo Starr, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell and the band Badfinger. In addition, Shankar and Ali Akbar Khan – both of whom had ancestral roots in Bangladesh – performed an opening set of Indian classical music. The concerts were attended by a total of 40,000 people, and the initial gate receipts raised close to $250,000 for Bangladesh relief, which was administered by UNICEF.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Co...ngladesh_(film)

    Harrison is asked by a reporter: "With all the enormous problems in the world, how did you happen to choose this one to do something about?" "Because I was asked by a friend if I would help, you know – that's all," is his reply.

    The track selection is apt for how things played out in the fire of Bangladesh's birth.

    I was born in a cross-fire hurricane..

    Admittedly, Bangladesh isn't the first thing that comes to mind when i hear this tune but there is a context.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1970_Bhola_cyclone

    The lack of any meaningful relief from then west Pakistan only added to determination of people in the east to break free

    A hard rain's gonna fall is gripping when set to the imagery of the struggle.

    how many times must a man look up
    Before he can see the sky?

    And how many ears must one man have
    Before he can hear people cry?

    how many deaths will it take 'til he knows
    That too many people have died?

    And how many years can some people exist
    Before they're allowed to be free?

    The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
    The answer is blowin' in the wind
    George Harrison wrote a song to raise awareness for the millions of refugees

    My friend came to me
    With sadness in his eyes
    He told me that he wanted help
    Before his country dies

    Although I couldn't feel the pain
    I knew I had to try
    Now I'm asking all of you
    To help us save some lives

    Bangladesh, Bangladesh
    Where so many people are dying fast
    And it sure looks like a mess
    I've never seen such distress

    Now won't you lend your hand and understand?
    Relieve the people of Bangladesh

    Bangladesh, Bangladesh
    Such a great disaster, I don't understand
    But it sure looks like a mess
    I've never known such distress

    Now please don't turn away
    I want to hear you say
    Relieve the people of Bangladesh
    Relieve Bangladesh
    This concert was ahead of its time. Back in Aug 1971, there was no Bangladesh (Free Bengal)

    It only comes into being at the end of the year.

    Now, there was a second concert held the month after at the Oval in but no footage exists for it.

    Goodbye Summer, Concert for Bangladesh
