Music: An Anti-War Playlist


Tenley Nordstrom prepares herself for President Obama’s term-defining speech on Syria tonight by putting together a playlist of anti-war anthems:

Wake up America. It’s time for your denial to be over. You voted for another puppet. Your country can’t feed the poor, but they can sure bomb them. Now the question is, will we be dragged into World War Three? Russia has called Washington’s bluff and Syria has agreed. Surely Obama’s speech writers are scrambling today as his big war-selling speech is scheduled for tonight.

In the meantime, here is a playlist of ten anti-war songs.

Bob Dylan – A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall¬†

The Doors – The Unknown Soldier

CCR – Fortunate Son

The Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter

Guns n Roses – Civil War

Bruce Springsteen –¬†Born In the USA

The Clash – The Call Up

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On

David Bowie – Gun Running Blues

Bob Dylan – Masters of War
