Morning Song – Keep On Keeping On
When Curitis Mayfield released “Keep On Keeping On” (1971), the seeds of what would be called the “Me Generation” were already sprouting, as a growing number of young Americans retreated from the storms of political change and controversy.
Mayfield did the opposite, digging in and making ever more soulful music based on his mother’s wisdom that pointed towards a mature (and maturing), engaged citizenship, sung with the most beautiful voice this side of Marvin Gaye.
Never worry too long,
About what goes on;
Today it’s sorrow,
Look like joy tomorrow.
Keep on keeping on.
It’s the last week of the Obama Era. What keeps you keeping on?
