1969 Song of the Day- “Long Time Gone” by Crosby, Stills and Nash. Long Time Gone was written and sung by David Crosby- and was on Crosby, Stills and Nash’s self-titled debut album. It is probably the most famous CSN song that Crosby wrote and sang. Here is what he said about the song–“It was written the night Bobby Kennedy was killed. I believed in him because he said he wanted to make some positive changes in America, and he hadn’t been bought and sold like Johnson and Nixon – cats who made their deals years ago with the special interests in this country in order to gain power. I thought Bobby, like his brother, was a leader who had not made those deals. I was already angry about Jack Kennedy getting killed and it boiled over into this song when they got his brother, too.
