Hey Sandy revisited
Wednesday, June 27, 2012 11:47 | Filled in Blog
Hayden Dingman of Chapman University, California, has written an interesting modern examination of the songs written about the Kent State shootings, with a section focusing on “Hey Sandy”:
“Tin soldiers and Nixon coming”: musical framing and the Kent State shootings [PDF]
(One minor error, however, is saying I wrote it a few weeks after Young’s “Ohio”. I actually wrote it within a day or two of the shootings and had not heard Young’s song.)
Meanwhile Soulraven has posted a nice appreciation of the song. I don’t know when it was posted or who Soulraven is, but all I can say is their description of the time and their conclusion is spot on.
