Flowers in her Hair

July 4, 2012

I was so lucky I got to spent Canada Day away from the city and next to the lake! I went to a friend’s cottage on Lake Simcoe for the day & night, and while it was a short visit we definitely made the most of it.

We cruised around on the boat, went tubing, played bocci ball and badminton, enjoyed a BBQ and bonfire, and of course laid out in the sun. With 30 degree highs both days and friends close by it was one of the highlights of the summer by far!

Here are a few captured moments from my weekend…

    Hey! A not-so-random 60's tune to add to your musicology/pop-culture knowledge-base: suits the title of your post!

    “The Rain, the Park & Other Things” is a 1967 hit single from the American pop group The Cowsills. The score and lyrics were co-written by Artie Kornfield and Steve Duboff and recorded by The Cowsills in 1967.

    With this hit, the band became popular internationally, and the single reached No. 2 on the Billboard charts. It ties with 1969's “Hair” as the group's biggest hit, as both reached No. 2 in the U.S.

    The song is unusual being one of the few vocal works whose lyrics do not contain the song's title.
