Beautiful songs that promote...you guessed it-Communism

Updated on December 3, 2011

These were hip, but did we get the words?

It surprises me that most decades since the 60's have a song that praises and welcomes Communism! Do the song writers even know what happens to the "little people" in Communist countries? My guess is no, because none of them live in one! Below is a list of great songs that were popular and have something else in common. They carry a messages of no weapons, no strength, no security, no Heaven and no God! I like these songs but not the philosophy. Sorry, but I'll take Capitalism any day over an evil regime that kills and starves its own!

Though this is a serious topic, I also write in a "tongue and cheek" style and like to laugh sometimes too.

The Zappas- Let's talk about it.(From America) This one was cool and Dweeezil could really jam on the guitar. Moon Unit sang with such strength, but my goodness listen to what she sang! "Did you hear the news today you won't believe it but its true. We're still making weapons to protect us from you know who. (Russia) If we really need them to keep the peace then they do too. One guy throws the switch, we all die and there is nothing we can do!" Holy Cow! Where did they get the idea that Russia and other empires and dictatorships built weapons only because we did first? Next this was written in 86'. Who do you think the "one guy" who would throw the switch and kill us all was? I know who she meant! Then she flat out talks about Capitalism, Freedom, and Communism, and what she says about them is quite bazaar. Enough on this song. I was just surprised that Frank was okay with it. He was not a Republican and was not Reagan's biggest supporter but, he did appreciate our free society and seemed concerned about America becoming Europeanized.

The Scorpions- Under the Same Sun. (From Germany) This was a beautiful rock ballad, except for the lyrics! This absolutely implies that prayer is useless and talks about Jesus as if He were someone that causes us to fight over! Again, Holy Cow! Then singer says we have to "rearrange" our world, and makes it clear that it does not matter if there is a Heaven above, we just need to love each other and live as one. It was an odd song with a great beat. Though the lyrics disturbed me at first, I stopped taking it serious because of the singer's disclaimer. He says "Sometimes I think I'm going mad...and no one really cares" That was good enough for me, and relieved me because no one will take this gibberish serious!

The next one should not surprise anyone. This was the anthem of Communism and made it sound so wonderful. A man named Armond Hammer, the Communist baking soda king, met with the writer and singer of the next song and shared many ideals with him!

Imagine-John Lennon.( From England) I know, I will take some flack over this one. But come on you know this song and its words! Imagine no God, No Heaven, No Hell, No Countries, No Beliefs. Without possessions,religion and God John implied that we would have peace! If one does not want to believe in anything, then don't! But please do not tell me that I can't.I respect your choice and freedom to believe, deny or whatever. If you think I am being too serious, then please think of the Communist Countries in our world's history. They have outlawed Christmas, weddings in churches, and many other freedoms that we Americans enjoy! Then, they kill their own people who do not conform! What may surprise you is that the Beatles took a serious shot at Communist dictatorships in "Revolution". They "swatted" Chairman Mao, which was awesome! Then John writes this. I wonder wherever John is now, if he knows who killed him and why. How he perished and the conspiracy behind it was sad!

Yes, I love the Beatles, and rock and roll just like I love movies. I just notice what I hear however and pick up on little messages meant to influence us. I hope you do as well.

      Hi Brett,

      I would like to answer your questions but I don't understand the first one. The sentence was broken and non sensible. You say that I chastised John Lennon. Can you copy and paste, in your next comment one sentence where I chastised him?

      Next, you clearly did NOT read this article! You said that " If you want to have your beliefs, you need to offer that same opportunity to others who disagree, not try to beat them into the ground with stories of Mao and Stalin" I said nothing of the sort! What I actually wrote was " If one does not want to believe in anything, then don't! But please do not tell me that I can't. I respect your choice and freedom to believe, deny or whatever." So, before you comment again, please read the blog that I wrote!

      So, correct me if I'm wrong, but you are chastising John Lennon for telling people what to believe, and then telling people that if they're not anti-communist, or your version of anti-communist (communism in theory has some great ideas, in practice it obviously doesn't work out well. Also, wanting to get rid of religion and money, while maybe making someone seem naïve, does not make them monsters or poor citizens. If you want to have your beliefs, you need to offer that same opportunity to others who disagree, not try to beat them into the ground with stories of Mao and Stalin. Yes, horrible things have been done in the name of communism, but the same can easily be said for all forms of government at one point in their history.

      Actually, no I am not for the status quo. You my friend seem to be very angry with your country and are looking to take it out on someone. That's too bad! I am simply writing about music and the hidden messages in it. You chose to come on here and go off on America and me. I see that we have little in common because i do not hate America and I did not come on HP, looking for an argument!

      BTW have you ever lived in a communist country? I highly doubt it because of how ungrateful you are for the great land we live in!

      It,sounds like you are for the satus quo!

      America today is less free than it was before 911.

      In fact America has become less free in almost all of the decades since at least the civil war,even though in the aftermath of the civil war African Americans had to fight to gain civil rights even many of them probably didn't realize that they were duped into become 2nd class citizens which was still better than being outright slaves.The rest of the people were slowly being convinced that they were citizens of the "UNITEDSTATES" when in fact they were made so ,by a "CORPORATION" by that name "CREATED" by world bankers to take control over the federal as well as the state governments in the years since then by letting the people believe that we went back to constitutional government when in fact we did not and still are not!

      It's fraud,because the American people were never told the truth!

      Please feel free to leave a message, but understand that I believe America and her principles are worth fighting for!

      Just look at history and see what has to be done end religion, take away possessions,and make us live as one. The Soviet Union, and Chairman Mao's regime, murdered countless citizens of their own nation to force this sort of "utopia". Cuba threw many of it's own in jail for sending Christmas cards, and singing Christmas Carols!

      I do not want to imagine no Heaven! I will stay right here in America...Thank you!
