That’s what I’m talking about: Modern Roman Missal Mass!

I JUST HEARD THIS AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME IN DECADES—IT HAS A HAUNTING GREGORIAN CHANT LIKE QUALITY...WHO WILL ANSWER?
Just heard this 1967 Ed Ames top 40 hit. 1960’s music was fun, eclectic, uplifting and inspirational. Some of the anti Vietnam war songs quite moving as were some of the songs supporting our courageous troops.
Wow! The Indian on the Daniel Boone Show! Who'da thought?
Wow indeed! This hits the nail right on the head. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Ed also appeared on the Tonight Show to demo for Carson his tomahawk skills and promptly planted it the crotch of the man-target and he and Carson laughed hysterically as did the audience.
At that time, radio was not near so specialized, and you might hear The Mamas and the Papas, Sinatra, the Beatles, Perry Como, Crosby/Stills/Nash/Young, Judy Collins, Diana Ross and the Supremes, and Mel Torme back to back.
Father, we lived in some wonderful times where WWII stars were still stars and active, but also the early days of pop/rock where there was still wonderful lyrics and great composition, with much crossover to include full orchestra accompanying latests pop/rock and superb musicians in both classes.
You can still get that sort of eclectic mix, for example on Sirius (subscription) or iHeart Radio (free):
Ain't nuthin' free anymore. You still must pay for the data which is expensive. Back when, all you needed to buy was a radio and/or tv, and tolerate an advertisement at top and bottom of the hour (and now, a word from our sponsor/singular). Later came on the quarter hour. Today one is lucky if a song or show ever squeezed in among the 100dB gross-out ads.
Good point about the vulgar commercials—so, strictly speaking, not back-to-back then. But not too much data usage for the radio (I track it every day now following a freak overage a few months ago) but you are correct on the basic point, we must still pay for a data plan. On the other hand, if you have internet anyway, . . . Also, the “free” Spotify is not too bad—up to 30 minutes commercial free sometimes.
Sounds very Broadway-ish to me.
As for the song, today folk are masters of blame shifting aided by media technology, through which they also dominate.
Unpunished injustice heaps upon unpunished injustice. The song is haunting indeed for today.
Most of us have experienced such, myself included, both in career and several needless and wasteful deaths in immediate family. But the answer is that all will answer, and rather than dwell on all the injustice, the best I can do is to do my best to be prepared for my own answering, and pray the others do as well. THAT answering is all which really matters. Where all answers will be made clear and absolutely nothing hidden.
The Indian on the Daniel Boone show started showbiz singing with his brothers, and is Jewish.
His version of Try To Remember was one of the better ones, and he had a couple which are still played today including My Cup Runneth Over, and his version of Do You Hear What I Hear is one quite familiar to this day to most folk, whether they know it is him or not.
