Redemption

[2010]
Lyrics & Music by Alan Gardiner and Roger Peatman
Album: TBA

"Dark poignant Progressive Rock song exploring the fact that each of us have different beliefs about one thing or another ! Hence the human race never can be united as one !!
Around One Billion Atheists,
Around Twenty Major Religions,
Different Political Parties,
Not Surprising That Humans Will Never Be As One
Who Is Right
You Or Me ? "
Do you feel a yearning – stomach churning urge

A Great Man

[1979]
Lyrics & Music by Rob Lincoln

"America loves Harry Truman, but the tens of thousands of children who were incinerated and the hundreds of thousands who died in agony didn't care if he was feisty and played the piano. Dick Nixon loved watching football and was a great dad, but the 100,000+ children who were burned to death, shot or had their family member die in a shower of bombs didn't appreciate those endearing aspects of his personality. GW may really be more personable than Gore but would boring Al have caused the death of between 35,000 and 600,000 Iraqi civilians thus far? Will any Great Man be held accountable? Not if they are an American president. They are portrayed as one of us. We know their family members' names and their vacation spots better than how many deaths they are directly responsible for.

At best some may question whether the 2,500 US soldiers deaths have been necessary in Iraq. Civilian deaths are not even counted by the US Army. It's just "collateral damage."
He was a great man.. and a leader too,

Go Down Old Hannah

Sono anche più tardo di Leadbelly che, al suo ingresso in prigione, si chiedeva a chi o a cosa diavolo si riferissero i detenuti con l'espressione "Old Hannah"... ora ci sono arrivato:

"Old Hannah" (o, meglio, "Ol' Hannah") = Hosanna, l'invocazione a Dio perchè salvi il credente, termine di origine ebraica. = "Hosanna in the highest", "Osanna nell'alto dei cieli" = The sun, il sole.

Arlington

The meaningful song is narrated by a soldier that was killed in action and is now buried at Arlington National Cemetery. The hit song was actually inspired by Tennessee-native, Corporal Patrick Nixon, of the United States Marine Corps. He died in battle on March 23, 2003 after being ambushed while trying to secure a bridge in Nasiriyah, Iraq. After speaking to Nixon's father, Turnbull felt inspired to make his story into a song.
I never thought that this is where I'd settle down

Contessa

mi va bene tutto: che nel '68 era un'altra cosa, che (per alcuni) il fine giustifica i mezzi, che la lotta (sempre per alcuni) può essere giustificata... PERO? scusrae, questo è un sito CONTRO la guerra e la violenza!!! A questo punto cambiate il nome del sito in "canzoni di protesta/comuniste/quellochevipare..." ma no "contro la guerra" perché questa canzone non lo è, punto. Anche perché poi noi pacifisti veri non veniamo presi sul serio...

Carissima Azzurra, che tu lo voglia o meno questo sito ha dei criteri (espressi peraltro in decine di commenti, introduzioni, addirittura pagine apposite...), ai quali ci atteniamo dandone sempre accurate spiegazioni.

Al Carneval

Version française – AU CARNAVAL- Marco Valdo M.I. a – 2010
Chanson italienne – Al carneval – Talco – 2010

Quatrième morceau de l’album «  La Cretina Commedia », dédié à Peppino Impastato.

« Les premières représentations du groupe de Peppino, organisé dans le Cercle Musique et Culture, prélude à un projet plus important dans les années qui suivirent – Radio Aut – eurent lieu dans les rues à l'occasion des fêtes du village. Une celle-ci, le Carnaval., Peppino organisa une farce, la l'insinuant dans la foule masquée et mettant en scène une représentation théâtrale, où des paysans et des édiles se plaignaient des patrons, calmés par un prêtre qui prêchait le calme en attente d'une vie meilleure au-delà de la terre. Arrivait alors un fonctionnaire de parti corrompu qui incitait au retour au travail sans se plaindre. « Car le Parti voulait qu'il en soit ainsi »... Puis le mafieux qui faisait... (Continues)

Just Another Soldier

[1985]
Dall’ultimo album della band californiana, “3-Way Tie (For Last)”
Scritta da D. Boon

Canzone che probabilmente prende spunto dalla battaglia delle Termopili del 480 a.C. dove – leggenda vuole che – 300 opliti spartani guidati da Leonida tennero testa a decine di migliaia di soldati persiani. Quando Serse intimò ai greci la resa e la consegna delle armi, Leonida rispose: "Μολὼν λαβέ", "Venite a prendervele!", e i trecento furono finalmente spazzati via.
Over 300 dead, we still got pride

Fascist

[1980]
Album “Paranoid Time”
Scritta da D. Boon

Dedicata alla dirigenza del PD, Partito dei Deficienti, che a Milano si dimette in blocco perché quel “frocio” comunista di Vendola ha vinto le primarie con il suo Pisapia, che già cerca di screditarlo dicendo che “alle primarie hanno votato in pochi” e che “le primarie sono uno strumento che va rivisto” e che intanto cerca l’inciucio con il fascista Fini, divenuto leader dell’opposizione…

Old Soldiers Never Cry

[1975-1996]
Lyrics & Music by David Kilpatrick

A song for the veterans of all wars and any wars - not a lament, nor a protest, but a comment on the passing of time and the nature of men at war. Strong chorus and rhythm.

"Started with the first verse and chorus sometime in the mid-1970s, this is a song which was gradually built, then completed in 1996 when suddenly it hit me that the old Great War soldiers returning to the war cemeteries in France would soon be gone - indeed, they would have to be 100 years old. And that's what the song ultimately comments on: the distance of time, and the few remaining. But it's about more than that. It was also completed because my father, who was a bomber pilot in the 1945 war, had died; and I realised then that I had never finished any of the songs I started writing years before, and he's never heard a single one of them. So, in a way it was... (Continues)

Ground Zero

[2001]
Lyrics & Music by David Kilpatrick

"This song was not completed until October 5th 2001. On September 11th we were in front of the television, taking a lunch break from our office, when the news broke in. We remained there. I apologise to anyone who may be offended by my politics. I wanted to write a song which could sung by anyone, at any time in the future. It is played on my Lowden O-10 in Drop D with the capo on fret 1 and it's a very simple traditional tune".

Doce Brigada

Testo di Garcia y Garcia
Musica di Vittorio Cao
1937 circa
Testo completo da Altavoz del Frente



Non so qual diavolo, stasera, ha soffiato sulle spente braci del mio antico "mal de España. Mi sono messo a cercare in AWS e in You Tube le canzoni repubblicane, quelle che conoscevo ai miei vent'anni. Forse ne manca una, che mi insegnò personalmente il garibaldino Giuseppe Alberganti, ferroviere, che, dopo la Spagna, fu il comandante della piazza di Milano che diresse l'insurrezione del 25 Aprile, e poi fu dirigente comunista a Milano, e poi fu mandato a quel paese dal partito per il suo irriducibile, diciamo così, cominformismo, e infine fu presidente del movimento studentesco milanese. Lo chiamavano Diamante per i suoi bianchi e lucenti capell, di cui fin da giovane andò fiero. La canzone è quella della Dodicesima Brigata mista Garibaldi. L'ho trovata in You Tube e non in AWS. Io mando... (Continues)

Jarama Valley

una nota interessante:

La cantante es Anna Witte,la versión del original también es suya.
Jarama Valley fue compuesta por Alex Mac Dade,un Brigadista Irlandes,es una versión de Red River Valley.
La Compañia Irlandesa 'James Conolly' se integró en la XVª Brigada 'Batallón Lincoln' cuando la XIVª Brigada,con gran prensencia de Irlandeses,fue diezmada en Andalucía.
El documental de donde está sacada la canción se llama 'Souls Without Borders' 'Almas sin Fronteras'

The Vapors

[2002]
Lyrics & Music by Rob Lincoln

"It's a rocker that is very unplugged rock tune with strange chord pattern, inspired by the former administration (Bush and Cheney). Needs a drum, bass and perhaps a few lyric changes and a bridge, but I think it has an interesting feel to it. The first line could be my epitaph".
Nothing's ever simple everything is hard
