“One Tin Soldier” as performed by Coven is the Peace Song of the Day for January 27th. It’s a sad story, in the form of a parable, told to whimsical, groovy music. It’s a1960s era antiwar song written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter [See Wikipedia]. There are many versions, including a cartoon version, on Youtube.

“The War Song” by Culture Club is/was the Peace Song of the Day for January 23rd. Many thanks to David Kirschenbaum at Boog City for conjuring up this suggestion when we asked for an obscure, antiwar song!
