Another icon of the '60's has gone off to Hannalee. Mary of Peter, Paul and...passed on last night after a long battle with leukemia. Quote: "My politics--and as long as there's Miss Clairol, my hair--will never change." She made having a low voice(like mine)cool. She'll be missed dearly.

Where is Hannalee,exactly?? We have a town in the Potteries called Hanley,and I suppose if you sang it musically it could sound like Hannalee :)

Another celebrity this week hits the dust. The radio paid tribute this morning by playing Peter,Paul and Mary's nice version of the Trini Lopez 'peace song' of the 60's: "IF I HAD A HAMMER".
Of course,PP&M also did a version of Bob Dylan's song: "BLOWING IN THE WIND".

Sad news.

b-b if you listen to Peter, Paul and Mary's Puff the Magic Dragon (I never can without welling up!!)you will find that he 'frolicked in the morning mist in a land called Honnalee' or words to that effect.

:)

Yeah,thanks,Anne; I was trying vaguely to recall which song of theirs it came from,and you have put your finger on it.
I have checked out the lyric: in the second line,it goes like this:

"..and frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called honah lee..."

So,it's a fantasy place to go to in one's imagination.

I hate the bit where Jackie Paper 'came no more' (grows up) and Puff 'sadly slipped into his cave'.

I have wept buckets about Puff being lonely !! And as a grown up I mean!!! Sob.

:(

There's a road in Phoenix, Arizona called Honah Lee Court.

Uhuh? Is that where you're planning to move to,next,kaz? You'll be living quite near to the red-suspendered One,then?
 
Re: Mary Travers by kazzzz on 18 September 2009 2:46pm
 
Damn, you worked out my next move ;)
