John Lennon and Yoko Ono with the Plastic Ono Band and the Harlem Community Choir, “Merry Xmas, War Is Over,” 1972.
Ok, now isn’t that so nice? That feels real special, just right for the time of year too. Perfect fit. Really hits that sweet spot.
As you can see, this is an antiwar song recorded at the height of the antiwar movement. Yes, the war was still going on in 1972.
