Happy Xmas (War Is Over)

Released as a song to protest the Vietnam War, "Happy Xmas" remains as vital today as it's singer and his legacy. War is over, if you want it:

End the war!


Happy Xmas (War Is Over) is a song that was written by John Lennon with partial help from Yoko Ono. It was recorded at the Record Plant in New York City in late October of 1971, with the help of producer Phil Spector. It features soaring, heavily echoed vocals, and a sing-along chorus. The children singing in the background were from the Harlem Community Choir and are credited on the song's single. . . . (more)
