Now to continue with the song list..

 

Give Peace A Chance   by  John Lennon (with the "Plastic Ono Band")

 

This was recorded in May , 1969 at his "Bed In" at a Montreal Hotel in Canada

(Queen Elizabeth Hotel)  (How Brittish) 🙂

The song became an athem for the anti-war movement in Vietnam.

About 30 years later,  he was quoted as saying, "I think we made a point there".

You really think so !!!!!!!

We are still singing, Give Peace A Chance"-   Hopefully someday................

Dear  Gent2U

 

I have always liked Peter, Paul and Mary..   I never heard this song before.

I finally went onto "You Tube", (The best way to find vintage stuff). (Also as

you suggested)

 

That song is not only beautiful, but it could be appropriate for any time era.

I really enjoyed listening to such a great trio performing as usually, at their best.

 

Thank you for sharing this with me.   Everyone should listening to this and just

"Light One Candle" also.

 

Please make a post if you happen to stumble onto this.

 

Thank you again Gent2U

Peace

@rc8149 - whether it is, or it isn't, Peter, Paul, and Mary had an appropriate song for this moment: "Light One Candle" (aka "Don't Let the Light Go Out") https://youtu.be/h1cRXgDFiSs

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...
