It's Peter, Paul & Mary Hippie Shit. Live with it.
It was the soundtrack song for Billy Jack, and it was produced in a time, when all music productions had the big over produced "Ooh and Ahhh" along with orchestration arrangements, when just a simple acoustic guitar would have sufficed. Especially for that movie, you would have thought a Jim Croce song would have fit the bill. It's that 70's Soundtrack sound. It could have been used to sell Buicks, or Hawaiian Punch.Other examples of songs that took a boring shitty song and over produced. Up up and away in a beautiful balloon.The night the lights went out in GeorgiaPlease Come to Boston (This one has a chorus that sounds big like One tin soldier, but it has some acoustic music space in-between it. this song explains my critique about that song best.)
You must really hate "Octopus's Garden."
The vast majority of music lyrics make no sense
It’s pretty relevant to today. The woke are working up the valley people into a socialistic fervor over inequities between people’s lives. Go ahead and hate your neighbor! He’s got lighter skin and is probably oppressing you somehow.
Have you listened to Metallica's "One"? If there's ever been a song about the horrors of war, with an amazing thrash metal revelation at the end ... that would be it!Trust me, I've seen 'em perform it live! The best live anti-war and heavy metal of all time!
You should try to find the movie "Johnny Got His Gun," or the book of the same name by Dalton Trumbo, on which the Metallica song was probably based. It's even more inflammatory. They talk about Korea being the forgotten war; WWI was absolute, mass insanity and carnage.In the book, he succeeds in communicating with nurses and doctors through Morse code by using neck movements. I won't spoil the ending for you.
Yes, Metallica bought the rights to the movie, to make their studio music video. Watch my link above, it's all movie clips from "Johnny Got His Gun" interspersed with the band playing.FYI, no recording does justice to this song. Watch Metallica play it live before they're too old to perform.
