War

Posted by shanoah on December 28, 2009

That is generally one of my traditional Christmas songs, actually. Trouble was, I’d already played most of them last year.

So, the war is over? Let’s see what Bob Marley says about that. This is his song, War, which is based on a translation of a speech Haile Selassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, made to the United Nations in 1963. The Rastifari religion, in fact, was founded entirely around Haile Selassie.

This is also the song that SinĂ©ad O’Connor did a cover of with modified lyrics, when she ripped the pope’s picture up on television.
