Eve of Destruction

Today’s forgotten oldie is the first musical editorial I remember… the #1 hit from Barry McGuire “Eve of Destruction”.  The song from 1965 was a huge success and a musical protest of the Vietnam war as well as things around the world in general.  McGuire, a former singer with the New Christy Minstrels, was never able to replicate the success but has had a long and successful career in show business.  Today his great song is just another forgotten oldie.
