I’ve decided to keep the peace songs coming for a little longer. I started working with communities through the peace movement, so I’m enjoying revisiting some songs from my past.
This one, 99 Red Balloons by Nena, always reminds me of a huge nuclear disarmament rally in Melbourne in 1984.
99 Decision Street, 99 ministers meet
To worry, worry, super-scurry
Call out the troops now in a hurry
This is what we’ve waited for
This is it boys, this is war
The president is on the line
As 99 red balloons go by.
