John Lennon: Happy Christmas (War is Over)

John Lennon: Happy Christmas (War is Over)

Via Konstantin Makov , who should be in your circles (if not already) for his creativity and uncanny ability to pair music, images and ideas.

“Happy Xmas (War Is Over)” was written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono and recorded in 1971, with the help of producer Phil Spector. It features heavily echoed vocals, and a chorus by children of the Harlem Community Choir. Although the song is a protest against the Vietnam war, it is interesting to note, that 30 years later, the Iraq war is finally over.


“A very merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let’s hope it’s a good one

Without any fear

And so this is Christmas

And what have we done

Another year over

And a new one just begun

Ans so this is Christmas

I hope you have fun

The near and the dear one

The old and the young

A very merry Christmas

And a happy New Year

Let’s hope it’s a good one

Without any fear

War is over over

If you want it

War is over

    Hard to believe Phil Spector had so much to do w/ songs of this message and artists of this caliber, and ended up where he is…

  18. Rajini Rao says:

    daniel wyatt , I think his legendary status did give him a lot of protection and preferential treatment in the early part of the trial..but that went only so far. Yeah, sad ending all around in his case.

  19. daniel wyatt says:

    Great sentiment though…it’s been some time since last I read those lyrics…a special man, he

  20. daniel wyatt says:

    OH,Ms. Rao, Rajini..I meant to compliment u on the musings of a mad scientist recipies, and wondered when I 1st read of the ATP this mechanism one found in all forms of life? Biological, botanical, bottom of the ocean rift organisms…horseshoe crabs w/ their cyanosomthin’ blood?

  21. Rajini Rao says:

    daniel wyatt , thanks for the compliment on the madamescientist was supposed to contain my scientific musings as well, but those seem to fit better here on G+. Regarding the ATP synthase, it arose early enough to predate all the life forms you mention. It is found in bacteria and other microbes, simple unicelled organisms, plants, fungi, metazoans (animals) of all types, Also seen in extremophiles (bacteria that grow at very high temperatures, or in very high salt and other inhospitable conditions)..these are a separate branch of life known as archaea. 🙂
