    1. Marty Balin said he wrote this song for Tony Bennett, who was also in the studio at the same time JA was recording Surrealistic Pillow. I don't think he recorded it. So much of this album celebrated and proclaimed our youthful hope and optimism. Few songs equal or surpass the aching romanticism of "Today." As wonderful today as it was forty-three years ago when it came out.

    2. "TWICE" LUCK POINTED THE WAY, EITHER FOR "HER" OR FOR "ME". LOVE BLOSSOMED FOR A TIME, THEN DIED THE 1ST TIME(NOT "1" REGRET " HAVE I ALL THESE YEARS. LIGHTNING STRUCK AGAIN AND CULMINATED IN "WEDDING VOWS"(ALWAYS HELD SACRED & HONORED BY BOTH). AT A " CROSSROADS", WE PARTED, YET REGROUPED ON ANOTHER "PLAIN". WHO KNOWS HOW WE WILL "PLAY OUT"(HARRY CHAPIN'S "TAXI SEQUEL")

    3. Tears and joy…. The only band… That I currently know to bring me to have both experiences at once as I listen to their sound and vibes and lyrics… Absolute masterpiece this song… And entire album… Blessed Be Jefferson Airplane and all of their descendants and supporters of all sorts existent in this dimension…. Any other existent.

    4. I'm now 69 yo and I know we were born in a really good time in America. All hell was breaking out all around us and yet this beautiful song was recorded. The late '60's-early '70's, were fun. If you weren't there you'll never get it.

    5. K's and P's suzie q no joke that day even today the sky somehow changed 1 but everbody 1 ..–Bwaaaaaa 0:43 with a succulent sweet organ in some cultures rather good eating, but they dont sell 3 4 2 anymore broken hearts just 2 so sadly true industry of heavenly plague subsidized so it relieves the guilt of the NASA Treasury with hobbling diregard.

    6. I want music to be like this again, but at the same time, I can’t help but think that maybe it’s for the better that music will never be what it was.

    7. Today, I feel like pleasing you
      More than before
      Today, I know what I want to do
      But I don't know what for
      To be living for you
      Is all I want to do
      To be loving you
      It'll all be there
      When my dreams come true

      Today, you'll make me say
      That I somehow have changed
      Today, you'll look into my eyes
      I'm just not the same
      To be any more than all I am
      Would be a lie
      I'm so full of love
      I could burst apart
      And start to cry

      Today, everything you want
      I swear it all will come true
      Today, I realize how much
      I'm in love with you
      With you standing here
      I could tell the world
      What it means to love
      To go on from here
      I can't use words
      They don't say enough

      Please, please listen to me
      It's taken so long to come true
      It's all for you, all for you 

      MARTY BALIN REST IN PEACE 
      MY LOVE WAS SPARKED AS A PRETEEN BY YOUR SONGS!!! Native California Girl

    8. And everyday….We weren't a perfect generation but we did try and i believe, in the end, we made a difference, ending a war and giving the world
      'Earth Day'.

    9. I feel nostalgic about a feeling i never had..i was born in 1992 yet i can feel this essence of amazing music which was made way before i was even born.. I need a time machine bruh! 😕
