I just couldn’t resist this! ” Puff the Magic Dragon” was multi-layered song of the complicated 60’s. Listen to the lyrics and you will hear a fantasy story of of a little boy and a dragon. But to many people it was a metaphor for smoking pot. You can decide for yourself. To me it doesn’t matter but just makes me smile on this Saturday morning.
I saw Peter and Paul on TV yesterday ( Mary Travers died in 2009) promoting a book they have written called “Fifty Years of Music”. Listen and return or go to a place long ago and far away where the reality of war and descent and pain gave way, if only for minutes, to a whimsical song!
I would love to hear your thoughts!
