A friend sent me some 1950’s music and this little ditty was included.
This is a sendup on the Cold War. A period that was the background international political climate for the first 45 years of my life. I break with the learned ones and usually only refer to The Cold War as the post WWII thru Détente era.
Many of the issues of today were issues of my youth with many bound together under the headings of human rights, antiwar sentiments and environmental concerns. A lot of music revolved around those protest thoughts and feelings. From the Pete Seeger folks songs thru the Dylan mainstream The Smothers’ sociopolitical comedy music and any number of other branches of that same bush.
One of my favorite “Protest Songs”
I’m not sure what kinds of comments this will evoke(or if will even get a reply) so lets see how it evolves.
