*Note: The artwork dictated the song choice. Sunshine Superman preformed live in 1966 by Donovan. I loved many of his songs.


Donovan is a Scottish singer, songwriter and guitarist. He developed an eclectic and distinctive style that blended folk, jazz, pop, psychedelia, and world music. He has lived in Scotland, Hertfordshire, London, California, and since at least 2008 in County Cork, Ireland, with his family. Donovan was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2014. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’›
