Lines of Inspiration
Melodious expressions, Enduring Truism
Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young
“Now everything is easy ‘cause of you”
Song Title: Our House
Songwriter: Graham Nash
Before co-founding the Hollies in the early 60’s, British rocker, Graham Nash was already known for his light tenor voice, songwriting gift, and as a collector of photography; whose own photography would later be published as well (San Francisco Art exchange). Having met the band Crosby and Stills while on tour with the Hollies, Nash met up with them again (alone) in the United States and by 1968 the band was called Crosby, Stills and Nash.
Written in under an hour, this sweet musical tribute to an actual event, an “ordinary moment” (Nash later recalled) in Graham Nash’s life has been called a “trite ditty”, though most often praised for its “innocent elegance”. It sounds to me like a moment one might want to “Carry a torch” for.
So, how about those lines? Does either one call to mind a memory? Instill a sense of wonder? Are you familiar with the phrase, song, or bands?
