Every weekday at around 4:20pm, I’m going to drop a song that I think you should listen to and make the remainder of your workday a bit more mellow with the 4:20 HIT of the Day. What does this mean? Simply, it’s a song that I think will give you some good vibes, ‘spark up’ nostalgia or just remind you about a tune that you might love but just haven’t heard in a while.
Today’s HIT was re-introduced to me through “Breaking Bad” in a scene during the final season where Walt & Jesse used the guise of pest control to continue cooking more of that ‘blue stuff.’ From 1969, it’s Tommy James & the Shondells “Crystal Blue Persuasion” which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. The music video below showed various scenes of late 1960s political and cultural unrest and imagery of “love and peace.” Enjoy!
