Review about Joan Baez songs
    ------ About the song No Man Is an Island performed by Joan Baez

The song "No Man Is An Island," has been part of the heart of Harand Theater Arts Camp since its inception, in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin, the summer of 1954. It has been the song of choice sung at the end of all shows and functions. It was and still is followed by another wonderful song, "Bless This House". Sixty years and still going strong. Harand Camp is still producing some of the finest, caring and loving people in all walks of life. Especially in the field of the arts for stage and film. My eyes well up every time I hear or get the chance to sing it with other Haranders. Thank you Sulie, Pearl, Byron, Sam and all of the Harand families. Love You.

Soul Touching very inspiring. | Reviewer: George Lewis Sr.

    ------ About the song Diamonds and Rust performed by Joan Baez

A lot of people can identify , with the love of once life and In many ways I feel that Bob Dylan was that for Joan. Here is your ghost again always appearing when you least want it. that person that one loves for ever but for one reason or another never can live with or has lived with but didn't work out. When she sings this haunting song, she pulls on my heartstrings as I can identify myself with the longing for that lost love, that one that carved into your soul. she sings it with such feeling and the words have so much depth, that it gives that bittersweet feeling of the pain and joy of experiencing true love as they go hand in hand, the depth is equal to its hight.

These are not the correct lyrics to the Baez version. Her version ends with Lord Arlen's wife exclaiming "for you have killed the finest lad in all of England:.

    ------ About the song Diamonds and Rust performed by Joan Baez

I am a guy and yet I get so sentimental when i hear this song. It takes me back to the lover whom I could have kept as mine and yet lost so many years back. Her words make me want to call her up and talk about the "diamonds" that I miss.

    ------ About the song No Man Is an Island performed by Joan Baez

A fitting reminder of service...to Country, friend .community. Mankind,and all Humanity. This son comes to mind and heart whenever I think of all the fallen of war. Not just abroad but here on our streets in the USA. I especially feel strongly humbled whenever I hear names of fallen soldiers announced in church or on television airways. Although my time of military service ended many years ago; I feel as though the loss the grief is my own. I too learned this song as a young girl so very proud of my voice. More than fifty years have passed since I learned this song which is very dear to my heart. For all who serve .... Thank you ; I dedicate " No Man Is An Island ". No man stands alone , each mans joy is joy to me. Each mans grief is my own. We need one another; so I will defend; each man as my brother ; each man as my friend. "I saw the people gather,; I heard the music start. The song that they were singing is ring in my heart. We need one another ...so I will defend each man as my brother; each man as my friend.".

I love this Song. | Reviewer: Rebecca Gutierrez

    ------ About the song Donna Donna performed by Joan Baez

This was a popular folk song in New Mexico in 1965. I performed it with my friend Kitty at various venues around Albuquerque many times. We were in high school at the time and performed it at some school functions also. Over 40 years later, we were playing Words With Friends and the word dona came up. We were both immediately reminded of the song. I hadn't thought about it for many years, but it brought back warm memories for both of us.
