Can't Get it Out of my Head!: Buffy Sainte-Marie "Goodnight"

I've loved this song for years and it has been in my head for a few days now - I love it! Buffy Sainte-Marie reminds me of a lot of Summer/Autumn nights back at home. This Saskatchewan Canadian-based Native folk singer has been a musical and creative inspiration to me. She teaches me how to relax and be free.

I think there is some Indian blood on my dads side with our high cheekbones, as well as my fascination for the native culture, shared by my mom. We had a dream catcher in our van for years. We were protected :)

I just love listening to this talented and diverse singer. I would love to cover her song "Goodnight" - we will see :)

You should check out the album "Coincidence and Likely Stories". I first discovered Buffy Sainte-Marie at a secondhand shop and the rest is history (yes, I listen to records as they still give the best sound ever).

OH MY GOONESS GRACIOUS! lol! I remember when my grad 8 teacher introduced me to this lady and her special voice back in '98. I was so smitten that 2 years later I tried in vain to dl her on Napster. I eventually did get some of her songs years late. I always thought of her as some rare treasure that no one knew about but me!

Yes! Your Grade 8 teacher knows music! It is so awesome you also love her! After buying a used record, my mom showed me that my dad had like 5 of them in his record collection. He was a DJ, but I didn't imagine him playing her at parties? Hehe :) It is so nice to hear someone else loves her just as much as I do! Yay! :D
