Song: “Woodstock” (1969)
Artist: Joni Mitchell
Local connection: The iconic folk singer wrote the song as a celebration of the legendary 1969 music festival, and a lament that she wasn't able to participate. A cover by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (who did perform at Woodstock) became a hit for the group.
Lyrical shoutout: “By the time we got to Woodstock / We were half a million strong / And everywhere was song and celebration.”
