"California Dreamin" is a timeless song that will continue to play for many more years to come.
"California Dreamin" was originally created by The Mama's and the Papa's in the mid-60s and has been sung by many different artists throughout the years. "California Dreamin" is one of those songs that captures the essence of a time when the world was still trying to find a balance.
Even today, we haven't quite found it, but
during that time we had leaders and visionaries impacting the world on a large scale. "California Dreamin" was a nice distraction from the worries of the world and it still is today.
Music like this just isn't made anymore, pure original content that speaks volumes. The Mama's and the Papa's aren't the only ones that created music of this caliber, but they are most definitely recognized when you speak of music that defines an era. They created many other hits such as "Dream a Little Dream of Me" and "Dedicated To The One I Love", but "California Dreamin" has to be their flagship track. I imagine listening to it in the 60s before the ipods and laptops would have just the best thing since sliced bread.
Now an days, we have so much technology that robots will be cooking our food and driving us to work. Long gone are the days of sitting by the radio with family enjoying the quality time of being together. You almost have to pay parents and their children to sit down at the table to have dinner as a family. The values have changed significantly since the 60s, money has engulfed the belief system to the point it's bankrupt. How are we to recover? And if that's not possible where do we go from here?
I would like to hear music or speakers with a voice of change and promise on a large scale, but none are to be found as of yet. When I started writing this review, I wanted to stay positive and upbeat, but you can't help but think outside of yourself sometimes. If there is anyone out there making music with a vision of change for the world, will you please stand up? I appreciate all of you for taking the time to read this post, as it feels good to vent from time to time.
