Stunning songs which feed and nourish us. Did you notice that so many religious backgrounds were represented among the songwriters and not a terrorist among them? Sounds have been part of our moral nourishment throughout the history of humans (NOISE is a good read by David Hendy 2013.)

Scott Ainslie's "Don't Obey" is my favorite peace song. http://cattailmusic.com/Lyrics/DontObeystudynotes.htm

Love these songs! My favorites are from the songsters of the '60's. As bad as that time was some really good things came about as a result of the upheaval of our society. Would love to see the sixties rise again!

I have sung a couple of these at protests... I have also sung "If I had a hammer..." on more than one occasion.
