  1. I’ve been listening to this song since its inception in ’67. It’s as true now as it was then.

  2. Heard the song again tonight, it has been many years since I last heard it. It is still one of my favourites and rings so true now as it did when it was popular.

  3. I have loved this song since I first heard it…the musical arrangement is beautiful, and the message content is very upbeat, positive.

  4. Garth Brooks disguised as Chris Gaines re-released this song differently in 1999, naming all the things possibly wrong in our community. The song was called Right Now and has the same message as the Youngbloods

  5. One of the greatest songs ever written – surely by Divine Inspiration. Along with WOODSTOCK, a quintessential hippie anthem, yet as true today as ever.

  6. A universal message to hopefully be carried throughout the generations.

  7. David Fruechting

    I agree, wholeheartedly — that does mean, here, all of my heart — and entirely, with Jesse’s desire, with the possible exception of splitting infinitives. 😉 I am yet hopeful it might be carried so. Tom Baker, too, is right and just in his appraisal, as least as I see it. These songs sing of the world I seek to create, and in which I would love to live. Peace be wi’ ye . . . past all understanding.

  8. come on people now, smile on your brother, everybody get together, and try to love one another right now…..when i was and alien cultures werent opinions…—i like Kurt’s version better. Just cause youre paranoid dont mean theyre not after you-aw how true

  9. Wayne Youngblood is a personal friend of mine, and to this days he practices what he wrote oh so many years ago.

    One of the most inspirational songs ever written.

  10. yeah man..i’ve never heard the youngblood version but i’ve looked for it everywhere cause i really want to hear the rest of it. it seems like a good song that everyone should hear. im sorry im spun and i really feel nice and happy la-la now.

  11. ..and also maybe if everyone heard that song and really felt it i wouldnt always need to be strung out and apologize for stuff i didnt do. casue i always get this weird motherly attitude and want to comfort people, but if people would just act like human beings to each other (or NOT human beings because that seems to be the problem) i wouldnt have to comfort people because maybe we’d all be happy. i know that sounded kind of like a bunch of freaky ‘free-love, happy flowers, rainbows, butterflys and zebras, unicorns and pixies, fuzzy bunny’ bullshit…but its true.

  12. Well shes walking through the clouds
    With a circus mind thats running round
    Butterflies and zebras
    And moonbeams and fairy tales
    Thats all she ever thinks about
    Riding with the wind.

    When Im sad, she comes to me
    With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free
    Its alright she says its alright
    Take anything you want from me, anything

    Fly on little wing,
    Yeah yeah, yeah, little wing

    Ain’t no fuzzy bunny bullshit girl, got to keep the mother rollin one more time

  13. Mr. Babacock, Who is this Wayne Youngblood?
    Wikipedia gives Chet Powers as the songwriter.
    Googling Wayne Youngblood ID’s a book dealer.

    • There’s no Wayne Youngblood. Jesse Colin Young was the leader of the Youngbloods, who made it a hit. Chet Powers is a name Dino Valenti(Quicksilver) used. He wrote it.

  14. “Come on people now, smile on your brother. Everybody get together try to love one another right now.“

    Thats from the beggining of Territorial Pissings, a song by Nirvana

  15. just heard this song for the first time.
    Well written, well spoken, well said.
    Hipster chill.

  16. This song reminds me of the Vietnam War.

  17. Who is the female version done by?

  18. I agree. I love this song. It’s perfect.

  19. This song was written by Dino Valenti of Quicksilver Messenger Service in 1963

  20. watched coldcase tonight this song was playing as background music, anyone know who the artist was,so good

  21. In a 1991 Halloween concert, Kurt Cobain mocks this song hilariously.

  22. Wow! i feel the message in this song is far more relevant now than then; and more of a connection felt by all who wish for positive change in our currently degenerating human evolution. i definitely understand the lyrics more now after experiencing more ‘Life’ on this side.

  23. I dont know what is happpening to me. I’m not control my self. I really love him.I clearly know he not belongs to me.he has his own life like me from me.

  24. Great female version by Cassandra Vassik, Canadian Artist, from a compilation album called Kumbaya!

  25. The youngbloods didn’t write that they stored it from my mother n law
