"Those were the Days" is originally a Russian folk song composed by Boris Fomin (1900-1948) with lyrics by the Russian poet Konstantin Podrevskii. The English version of the lyrics was written by Gene Raskin. The song was made famous by the 1968 recording of the Welsh folk singer Mary Hopkin. It was produced by the English singer-songwriter Paul McCartney, a former member of The Beatles. The song was the number one hit in the UK Singles Chart and number 2 in the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1968. It is about the reminiscence of youth and idealism, which conjures up in my mind images of the counter-culture and the protest of the Vietnam War in the 60's. Those were the days indeed.

Though I was only a young child when this song was released in 1968, I remember it with fond memories of my Grandparents in Miami Beach, Florida. Listening to it reminds me of them and playing in the ocean near their condo.

This brings back memories of times and places that live only in my imagination. It takes me into a gypsy camp, all dressed up in a long, flowing, colorful skirt, with a peasant blouse, dangly earrings, and bold, gold and silver jewelry. I'm dancing, twirling, laughing, and totally carefree.

But it's also sad, as if saying goodbye to times long past.

I love music that takes me into that gypsy place. It's a powerful place for me, as if in some past life I was there and only remember the happy times.

A kindred song is Boat on the River by Styx, the same Styx that did Grand Illusion and Come Sail Away.

We used the song for a photo DVD for a retirement party and it was perfect! It was a huge hit.
