Instrumental musicians like Vangelis, Tangerine Dream, Andreas Vollenweider feel like a healing balm to my sore muscles and racing mind after a long day, restoring peace once more.
Certain musical artists, Annie Lennox, Michael Jackson, Lenny Kravitz, cry out in their lyrics for us to show peace to each other and our Mother Earth.
I've selected a few of my favorite songs where peace is the plea.
Call for Peace in Lyrics
Oh I’ve been smiling lately dreaming about the world as one
And I believe it could be someday
it’s going to come (1)
Now stood beside the treasure on the mountain dark and red
Turned the stone and looked beneath it
‘Peace on Earth’ was all it said (2)
What have we done to the world
Look what we've done(3)
Michael Jackson: Earth Song (images are disturbing but the ultimate message is inspiring)
You see war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today(4)
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing (5)
We got to have joy
True in our hearts
With strength we can't destroy (6)
Here it is once again in our face
Why haven't we learned from our past
We're at the crossroads of our human race(7)
Well we've taken more
Than everything we need(8)
Yes, how many times can a man turn his head pretending he just doesn't see?(9)
Come on people now, smile on your brother(10)
All we are sayin' is (11)
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will be as one (12)
