Do you have friends who busk? We do. Buskers play music on sidewalks for free, and for the occasional compliment or tip. It’s raining on Long Island. It seems like the kind of day where people should share music for free, and try to entertain each other. So…
The Royal Song of the Day is “He Played Real Good For Free” by Joni Mitchell. You can find it in the Rise Up Singing songbook on page 24. Video below of Joni Mitchell singing her song:

For video of a genuine busker, performing music in the NYC subways, see this original video by The Duke and Duchess of Peace:
The Royal Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
