Weekend Birthday Homages
Tomorrow is Johann Sebastian Bach's birthday (he'd be 330 - but he doesn't look a day over 250). In honor of this seminal genius, we're featuring one of his best known works, the lovely "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring."
Of course, Bach's influence has been felt through the ages. As a small example, several years ago, we featured this song that, as an homage to Bach, includes a few bars of "Jesu..." in the guitar break (at 1:16). It's the beautiful, Gene Clark-composed "She Don't Care About Time." It's now our homage to Bach and The Byrds.
Enjoy the music and your weekend.
