Memorial Day! Always a welcome calendar occasion, but beyond the pool opening and summer’s unofficial beginning, there’s clearly more to this day. Without getting all preachy and finger-wagging annoying, I’ll say simply: Memorial Day…most important secular holiday on the calendar. Dying to protect strangers’ freedoms is intense shit. Having generation after generation do it is even more intense. That’s all.
On top of that, we have music from a childhood of Americana-rich rock. Here goes.
Happy Memorial Day out there!
