Detroit '67

I started listening to a new radio station recently, 93.9 The River, Windsor-Detroit, and they play a really great variety of stuff. One of the new songs I've been introduced to is Detroit '67, by the Sam Roberts Band. Not only is it a great, swingin' song, but it's got a wonderful sense of the city's history, and the video that accompanies it is fantastic. 

Detroit's history makes me both sad and proud, even though I didn't grow up here. The city, and the surrounding region of Southeast Michigan, have an amazing spirit, and I think it's one of the reasons why I feel so at home here, despite my New York roots. 

Anyway, I've looked for the song on iTunes, and it just ain't there, but I did find the video, so I'm happy to share it here. I don't know if it can inspire the kinds of emotions in others that it brought forth in me, but it's definitely worth a look. 

Keep Calm and Carry On, Detroit.

That is a great song :) I hadn't heard it yet, even though I listen to 93.9 often. Thanks for posting!
