My mistake !   Mia Culpa !

I just looked up the lyrics and see the connection to the subject:

 

Come on everyone we gotta get together now
Oh yeah, love's the only thing that matters anyhow
And the beauty of life can only survive
If we love one another
Oh yeah yesterday my friends were marching out to war
Oh yeah listen now we ain't a marching anymore
No we ain't gonna fight
Only God has the right
To decide who's to live and die

 

So sorry, amigo. That was a good one, and a good catch !

"Sweet Cherry Wine"

?????????????

What was that song protesting or rebelling against?

I loved that one, but I don't remember it as a anthem of protest or rebellion...

Why Can't We Live Together      Timmy Thomas   #3 in 1973

 

No more wars, no more wars, no more war
Umm, just a little peace in this world
No more wars, no more war
All we want is some peace in this world

"For What It's Worth" by Buffalo Springfield.  It's as relevant today as it was 40/50 years ago.  It was chilling to hear it played on Morning Joe the Monday after the Inauguration and the Women's March.  They showed scenes from the March all over the world and the words of David Crosby were as true in 2017 as they were in 1967.  "The more things change, the more they stay the same."

Simon and Garfunkel's haunting rendition of Silent Night. Their song is backed by a newscast. It is a grim reminder that  bad things, such as war, disease, natural disaster, and death do not take a day off for Christmas.

LOL!

And DITTO!

 

FYI only: I was a member of SDS (RYM 1, "the teach-in" educational faction) and a student on the Kent State campus '68-'71. Yep, you could say I was exposed to many protest songs.

 

psssst.....don't tell anyone else. I'm still in hiding  :-)

 

PS.....those bullets just barely missed me...that was close.

 

And in the song "Ohio" CSN&Y ask "what if you knew her". I knew her.

LookOverYonder -- Thanks for that information.`I wasn't aware of The Weathermen's connection to the song.  I'm almost embarrassed to confess I remember it from an episode of "Murphy Brown".   I was in college during those times, so I heard of SDS and The Weathermen and also SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee), but I was too busy studying and working my butt off to protest much of anything -- except for the lousy food in the cafeteria.  I'm glad you enjoy my posts.  I keep surprising myself with how many songs I can remember.  I've always been involved with music, but mostly Sacred and Show music.  This is fun. I love seeing what other posters come up with.
