PLASTIC ONO BAND Recorded ‘GIVE PEACE A CHANGE’ 50 Years Ago…

Knockouts from the past

1 June 2019

Anti-war song GIVE PEACE A CHANGE was written by JOHN LENNON (but credited to Lennon–McCartney on the record) and recorded with his PLASTIC ONO BAND, including
his wife Yoko Ono and a bunch of famous friends in Montreal, Canada 50 years ago today, on 1 June 1969 and peaked at #2 in the United Kingdom an at #14 in America.

Of course we know by now that most of the world leaders back then, now and in between never heard the song and if they did they classified it as hippie crap while they kept the multi-billion dollars war machine business going. Damn them ALL, but it certainly won’t stop me to play this positive mantra once again and again and again…
