Music Monday - "Can't Find My Way Home" by Blind Faith (1969)

"Can't Find My Way Home" by Blind Faith is a classic rock song that is new on my horizon.  I love retro music, but this song doesn't seem to get much airplay even on '60's on 6 (SiriusXM).

I have been watching, and enjoying, the new TV series This is Us.  It's a beautifully written show about relationships and connections between people and time.  It moves back and forth in time, giving little segments of the story out of order, and you slowly start to piece them together.  Although it is a show about relationships, it reminds me a bit of Lost in the non-linear storytelling.  It's really interesting.  Two of the characters in the show are a couple who have multiple babies (triplets) in 1980.  This is their song.  After the episode that featured "Can't Find My Way Home," I had to look this up on Youtube to listen again.  It's a sad song, but really beautiful.

This song was written in 1969 by Steve Winwood and recorded by Blind Faith.  Blind Faith put out one album in 1969.  The group consisted of Steve Winwood, and two members of the band Cream -- Ginger Baker and Eric Clapton, along with bassist Rich Grech.

I find this song beautiful and rather haunting.  



And here is a clip of This Is Us, featuring the song.



I'd love to hear from you in the comments, whether about this Music Monday song or This Is Us.  (I really love this show!).

I only have watched the first episode so far, but I am intrigued by all the different characters. I didn't realize that it changes time periods too, so I need to pay more attention to the next episode.

Haven't seen the show yet but that song is a big part of my personal soundtrack. I was in 10th grade in 1969 and listened to that Blind Faith album many many times. I still need a fix one in a while and look it up on YouTube for a re-listen. Thanks.
