Wow, I really hate to be "ageist", but are you all that young? These are great songs, but for me several outstanding ones are missing. One of my favourites is: "Sing A Simple Song of Freedom" by Bobby Darin.

Another one is "Peace Train" by Cat Stevens.

And, of course, there are a number of wonderful songs by the late Pete Seeger.

"Where Have All The Flowers Gone", "Turn, Turn, Turn", "If I Had A Hammer".

Thank you for these!

I remember that for several weeks after September 11, 2001, Enya's song "Only Time" was often played on CNN.

I Was Only Nineteen by Redgum, and The Band Played Waltzing Matilda by Eric Bogle. Perhaps not so much a "songs of peace" but songs of what war is like. Great aussie songs.
