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
