Anti War Songs, à la Carte©
Anti war related, mostly English language songs from many protest music genres, most with clips, covers, albums, writers and links to lyrics and/or audio downloads. Songs newly written or remixed for the 2003 attack on Iraq as well as timeless classics are among this comprehensive, yet growing, list. All of these should serve us well for the promised "war that will not end in our lifetimes" or at least until the next election.
