Oh Susannah, Don’t You Cry For Me

This is not my mother’s version, but I can live with it.

What do you think?


  1. Well I can too, because I'm a big Neil Young fan....I could listen to him sing all day and night long...as for this family....well the happy (most darling) little dancer, oh my goodness (he has been smoking for too long I fear) he just was too smooth taking it in...the girls mostly looked ready for a bit easier of a life, or something pretty and lively....a true life story of a wee bit too large a family, momma...right before our eyes....

  2. Karen S: I always look on the bright side of things. If that kid was smoking at age six in 1920, he did not suffer through the Great Depression. Scary.

  3. What a wild mix of imagery and music...
    It makes me remember that the romanticized images in my head are not always quite so accurate.
    Truthfully the music is just OK for me. A little monotone, leaves me a little disinterested.

  4. 'Yellow Rose' Jasmine: Music is definitely subjective. The video and its theme changes the sound considerably.

  5. The music is OK but the kid smoking is not nice or advisable. I have seen too many bad consequences of smoking!

  6. Fanático_Um: Yes, I agree. I am not sure it was advisable to connect this video with the music, but as as writer, I keep an open mind.

  7. Not a big fan of the music but the video was interesting.
