    Blue Collar, couldn't link your version, but found this, which is probably the same:

    http://videos.digett.net/jacksonbrowne/lives/lives_in_the_balance.mov

    Great song.

    By the way, to link, all you do is paste the address (with the http and everything) into the message window. If you don't have the address showing, do View --> Toolbars --> Address (or --> Navigation in Firefox)

    I could'nt get your link to play on my computer. More importantly did you see the video and hear the song, I was blown away by the images and lyrics?

    Wish You Were Here an anti war song ?

    Anyway, I may have one or two but I don't like that hill billy protest B.S. kind of music so none come to mind off the bat.

    You're right. I know music should be subjective, but the song really isn't about war. There are references in the lyrics, but they are symbolic more than anything literal. If anything, I guess it's an anti-schizophrenia song.

    I was actually asking more than telling. I always that that track and Shine on You Crazy Diamond were about Syd Barrett but, as always, I could be wrong.

    Edwin Starr - War

    Edwin Starr - War
    War! - huh- yeah-
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Uh-huh
    War! – huh – yeah-
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again y’all

    War! – huh – good God
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me…

    Ohhh… War! I despise
    Because it means destruction’
    Of innocent lives

    War means tears
    to thousands of mothers eyes
    When their sons go to fight
    and lose their lives

    I said - War! Huh – Good God y’all
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again

    War! Whoa, Lord
    What is it good for
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me…

    War! It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
    War! Friend only to the undertaker
    War! It’s an enemy to all mankind
    The thought of war blows my mind

    War has caused unrest in the younger generation
    Induction then destruction-
    Who wants to die?

    Ohhh… War – Good God Y’all
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it, Say it, Say it

    War! Uh-huh – Yeah - Huh!
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me…

    War! It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
    War! It’s got one friend, that’s the undertaker
    War has shattered many a young mans dreams
    Made him disabled bitter and mean
    Life is much to precious to spend fighting wars these days
    War can’t give life, it can only take it away

    War! Huh – Good God y’all
    What is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again

    War! Whoa, Lord
    What is it good for
    Absolutely nothing
    Listen to me…

    War! It ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker
    War! Friend only to the undertaker
    Peace Love and Understanding;
    tell me, is there no place for them today?
    They say we must fight to keep our freedom
    But Lord knows there’s got to be a better way

    War! Huh – Good God y’all
    What is it good for?
    You tell me
    Say it, Say it, Say it


    War! Huh – Good God y’all
    What is it good for?
    Stand up and shout it.
    Nothing!

    Geez forgot about Sky Pilot(used to be one of my fav's and just downloaded & burned it again), also just remembered just bought a Country Joe and Fish greatest hits album, aside from all the great stuff there is a song entitled "Maria" which is pretty good also.
