My opinion of war…


My opinion of war, Tell by Edwin Starr

My opinion of war resume by: Edwin Starr (1969)

Look at the final lyrics, remember that was written in 1969:

“They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there’s got to be a better way…”

Sad that it’s the same story in 2007 … For all the sides of ideas

You don’t like the next pictures? Do something in your country to stop war even if you think it will be meaningless, like telling your opinion…

… For me, nothing is meaningless if it came from the heart.

Lyrics:

Edwin Starr (1969) – War:

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y’all

War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives

War means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

I said, war, huh
Good God, y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain’t nothing
But a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, war
It’s an enemy to all mankind
The point of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, war-huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y’all
War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War, it’s got one friend
That’s the undertaker
Ooooh, war, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can’t give life
It can only take it away

Ooooh, war, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there’s got to be a better way

Ooooooh, war, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it

War, huh
Good God y’all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing

(love)love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Feathers on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me makes me lighter
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

In the night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

Water is my eye
Most faithful my love
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire of a confession
Feathers on my breath
Most faithful my love
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

Stumbling a little
Stumbling a little

Flogging Molly

Oki it’s Christmas, it’s time to dance, have fun and drink a lot! A while ago, in the Christmas time, our ancestors (from Québec) loved to dance at the rhythm of violins and guitar. And since i have some Irish in my blood (a long story from Québec evolution ) i though this is the time to present you one of my favourite bands: Flogging Molly!!!

I so danced and “trashed” on this music when I were at the university at the best Pub of Sherbrooke City called: “Les marches”!!!! Ah theses sweet nights with boozes, friends and flogging

Anyways here’s a clip and a list of my best songs ever that i’m listening in my car

Flogging Molly is a seven-piece Irish American punk band composed of:

Dave King: Vocals, Acoustic Guitar
Bridget Regan: Fiddle, Tin Whistle
Dennis Casey: Electric Guitar
Matt Hensley: Accordion
Nathen Maxwell: Bass
Bob Schmidt: Mandolin, Banjo
George Schwindt: Drums

Have fun!!

Song: Is It Real from the Seatbelts

Year of release:: December 17, 2001

Song: Is It Real

Track # 5

Buy album on Amazon:
Ask Dna

Look at the song info on Wikipedia:
Cowboy Bebop – Ask DNA

Spike Spiegel, Cowboy Bebop

Lyric:

Figurines that fall like leaves the disappear, keep calling
Is it real? Is it real?
Dark machines that wheeze and breathe then mock the air, appalling
What is real? What is real?
This world can really be too much
I can’t take another day
I guess that I’ve just had enough
My minds slipping far away
I’m falling out of touch
Could someone please explain?

Set my mind for open sky, but couldn’t fly, so sadly
What am I? What am I?
Sullen eyes shed teardrop lies then criticize, now laughing
What is real? What is real?
It’s really all become too much
I’m not sure what I should feel
I guess I’ve finally had enough
I don’t know if this is real
I’m crashing in and out of touch
Can anyone please explain?
