For years, I have been trying to find the name of this instrumental song (the same thing happened with “Rise” and “Feels So Good” which I have been meaning to use for MT) — you’ve heard it too. Turns out it is 1968’s “Grazing in the Grass,” by Hugh Masekela, a South African trumpeter. Thanks to the 105.9 FM for playing it yesterday on my ride home and listing it on their Web site‘s playlist. It even gets played during pitching changes from time to time at Nats games.
Then Friends of Distinction did it too, a year later, but with lyrics. You know it too.
