“Andorra” aka “I Want To Go To Andorra” is the Royal Peace Song of the Day for Tuesday, August 16th. The song was written by Malvina Reynolds. Pete Seeger has recorded the song, and added verses. You can find the lyrics in the Rise Up Singing songbook on page 158. And, you can buy a copy of Rise Up Singing at Powell’s book store: here.
Here is a youtube performance of “Andorra” by Raymond Crooke:
Duchess Susanna writes: Oh, well. The Duke and Duchess of Peace strive to bring you at least one, new item about peace and justice everyday. Though, we both also have day jobs. So, we didn’t get to the Song of the Day yesterday. Apologies.
Well…Here is a list of entertainment for regular royals, and people who are bought into corporate culture: professional sports; Polo; royal watching; high fashion; expensive concert tickets of corporate entertainers; shopping for the mirage of freedom (aka the instructions of certain politicians after 9-11).
Now…Here is a list of entertainment options for people seeking peace and justice: local sports (or, even better yet, non competitive games); family watching; sustainable fashion; local music; making your own music; and shopping in a spirit of fair trade and sustainability.
