You Can’t Kill The Spirit: Peace Song for 10/18/2011

6/27/17 Update:

Hi, Just found this post. Thank you for choosing my song. It has recently been re-recorded, the entire version on Vimeo under the title “Like A Mountain” Portland version. I resurrected the song in response to the results of the catastrophic election of tRump – a threat to all things good and beautiful.
Sincerely

Original post:

Can’t Kill The Spirit” by Naomi Littlebear Morena is the Peace Song of the Day for 10/18/2011, as chosen by Susanna, Duchess of Peace. You can find the words to this song in Duchess Susanna’s favorite, campfire, sing-a-long book, Rise Up Singing.

Everyone should have a copy of this songbook, just in case they find themselves at a folk music jam or a demonstration. You can buy Rise Up Singing at Powell’s Books online: here. (Powell’s is a union shop, and an independent book store.)

The above video is a unique interpretation of the song “Can’t Kill The Spirit” by neneohcs. His version uses a synthesizer, electronic sound style, paired with his own, sometimes ordinary and sometimes eerie photographs.

Lyrics excerpt:

You can’t kill the spirit
It’s (she’s) like a mountain
Old and strong
It (she) lives on and on…
