Hiroshima Mon Amour

Yesterday was the 75th anniversary of the first use of a nuclear weapon. I should have posted my 2019 cover of The Byrds' 1966 version of the deeply moving song about that horrific act, but given everything else that's going on at the moment, I think I can be excused for forgetting.

So here it is -- a day late, and I guess a dollar short.

In any event, I think I did a pretty good job with the song, despite the fact that I can't sing remotely as well as Roger McGuinn.

Have a great weekend everybody -- or at least as great as possible under the circumstances.

I tried playing the two tracks together and it almost synced. Is there anyone out there with a little more skills that could put the two tracks together perfectly? I think Steve deserves to jam with The Byrds!!!

Actually, they should sync up perfectly already, as we recorded our drum track over the original Byrds record and then dubbed everything else on top of that.
