For What Was Gained

Testo e musica di Stephen R.Coffee
Lyrics and music by Stephen R.Coffee

"If there's one thing that the fundamentalist Christians and fundamentalist Muslims agree on these days, it's that we are engaged in a religious war. On the assumption that it's a wise practice to 'know your enemy', I offer here a spare and uncomfortably familiar imagining of a Guantanamo detainee's encounter with Christian love. The deep cynicism, evidenced as much by the Appalachian styling as by the lyric, is my own, a luxury the prisoner probably cannot afford." -Stephen R. Coffee

Affare Dreyfus

Si noti come Davide Giromini, alla fisa, nel brano abbia inserito una citazione musicale del tutto inaspettata: si tratta della sigla del cartone animato Lady Oscar...

An extraordinary and sad document in our AWS collection: the lyrics of שיר לשלום (Shir Lashalom, "A Song For Peace"), by Yankale Rotblit. This is the famous song, composed in 1969, that the Israeli premier Yitzhak Rabin had sung on the great peace demonstration of November 4, 1995, in Tel Aviv. A few minutes later he was shot dead by a fanatic right-wing extremist, Yigal Amir, who buried this way the peace process for at least a decade. The sheet of paper with the printed lyrics of the song was found in the in the inner pocket of Rabin's jacket, perforated by the deadly bullet and drenched in his blood.

Paddy's Lament (By the hush)

(Traditional ca. 1870)

"This songs tells the story of an Irish immigrant to the US in the 19th century," Sinead says of Paddy's Lament. "In flight from hunger, he finds himself conscripted under General Lincoln in the American Civil War. General Thomas Francis Meagher, from Waterford, was organiser and commander of the Irish Brigade in the Union Army. I first heard the song 12 years ago when I was living in LA during the Gulf War. "It is the best anti-war song ever made, in my humble opinion," Sinead continues. "The ghost of the man speaking through the song is so present that I feel I could reach out and touch him."
(from Sinead O'Connor's Official Site)


Altri interpreti: Mary Black & The Chieftains, Linda Thompson, The Orphan Brigade

Nella canzone “Paddy’s lamentation” un soldato irlandese che ha combattuto per Lincoln si ritrova senza una gamba e senza la pensione d’invalidità... (Continues)
Well it's by the hush, me boys, and sure that's to hold your noise

The Malvinas

Recorded by Roy Bailey
...Freedom Peacefully (1985)

These are the lyrics of a song against the Faulklands War. (Taken from the book 'Peace Songs' Compiled and editied by John Jordan). I think the sentiments are very relevant to today.
