Inspiration from Buffy Sainte-Marie

On Labor Day morning this week, KAOS Olympia played a selection of “working songs,” including the song “Working for the Government” by Buffy Sainte-Marie.

This led me to discover a recent interview with Buffy Sainte-Marie by Scott Simon of NPR, originally aired August 29, 2009 on Weekend Edition Saturday.  This interview includes a performance of her song “Universal Soldier,” which Sainte-Marie tells us is about “individual responsibility for our world.”  Listen, and be inspired!

Visit Buffy Sainte-Marie’s website to learn more about her work and her newest album Running for the Drum.

PS – Also included among the KAOS “working songs” selections this past Monday was the song “Growing Trade” by Levon Helm (included on the album Electric Dirt).
