Pete Seeger sings of the BP oil spill

Pete Seeger sings a song that he wrote with Lorre Wyatt: “God’s Counting on Me, God’s Counting on You.” It may not be a great song, but it’s a good one for these times. The message — tikkun olam — makes sense in any language.

Lorre Wyatts don’t grow on trees, and it seems a reasonable assumption that Seeger’s co-composer is the man known in urban legend as the composer of Bob Dylan’s “Blowin’ in the Wind.”

Thanks, Luanne and Jim, for news of this song.
