Something about this particular tune always struck a chord with me as a kid..it was kinda spooky...it had gravitas. Fitting the reason for the season and all that. But what surprised me the most when I investigated it further; was that although it sounds every inch a classic to me, it was only written in1962....by a married songwriting couple, who reversed their usual roles on the lyrics and music...I would swear it was older than that. But more importantly, they had written it in response to the Cuban missile crisis as a plea for peace. I had no idea. Now there is a song I could sink my teeth into.
(recorded at home...and yes thats Reido on all vocals and instruments)
