In 1967, Stephen Stills wrote For What It’s Worth. It was inspired by the time Buffalo Springfield played in Whiskey A Go Go. Situated at the Sunset Strip, the public caused congestions, and therefore people living there wanted a strict time (10 p.m.) as time to close. A lot of people went on the streets, and caused riots there. The song was written about this. It was number 7 in the US. Enjoy

Song of the day: Poco- Call It Love

For the history of the band that made the song of today, we have to go back to 1968. The group Buffalo Springfield, which would record their final album, was about to split up. Richie Furay, Neil Young, Jim Messina decided to make a new band, called after a cartoon figure: Pogo. They would record several albums in the years following, but the big success would come in 1977, but this hit sort of slipped from one of their later albums. It was released in 1989, produced by Richard Marx and actually was the reunion of quite some old members, who had left the band in the past years. Enjoy
