Music Video Of The Day: Woodstock by Miya Folick (2017, dir by Sarah C. Prinz)


Since it’s the 50th anniversary of Woodstock right now, it seems appropriate to share this music video.

This is a cover of a song that Joni Mitchell wrote about the festival.  It’s a song that’s been covered by many different groups and, as is typical of the boomer folk music of the late 60s and early 70s, it’s a bit too self-serious for my taste.  That said, it’s definitely better than that Big Yellow Taxi song and Miya Folick brings a dream-like edge to her version of the song.  When you hear Folick’s version, it sounds like it’s possible that she’s being sarcastic when she sings about meeting a “child of God,” and that alone makes it better than most other versions of this song.

Enjoy!
