Shimbo Darktree Are anti-war songs a thing of the past? (30) RE: Are anti-war songs a thing of the past? 13 Sep 14


I have earned (most unfairly, of course!) the reputation of singing "wrist slashers", or, to put it another way, the protest songs which were much-loved in the 60s. I queried an audience of my fellow-travellers about this one evening, and was told, "We did all our yelling and screaming when we were young. Now, we want to be happy. Sing something funny!", or words to that effect. It made me think, and I have adjusted as requested. And I do see the point. But I still love "With God on our Side" et al.
