Come Together

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Hmmm, the prompt was "integration" and I could not come up with anything using the term directly so I used the spirit and came up with this. Obviously the title is a tribute to John's "Come Together" but the style of referencing other famous people was inspiration from "God", also by Lennon. Or maybe the whole thing is one big plagiaristic mess! Smile

Lyrics: 

Come Together
September 1, 2017

everyone
should come together
just like Lennon told us
long ago

everyone
should love each other
just like Jesus said
so long ago

together we can come to love each other
together we can come to live in peace
together we can come to save a planet
these are our dreams
and they are never out of reach

everyone
should give cheerfully
just like Maya told us
long ago

everyone
should be the change they wish for
just like Gandhi said
so long ago

together we can come to love each other
together we can come to live in peace
together we can come to save a planet
these are our dreams
and they are never out of reach

everyone
should come together
just like Lennon
told us long ago

come together
right now
come together
over peace

What lovely fingerstyle guitar, melody and smooth vocal. A timely message too Smile Thanks for playing!

It almost makes me sick to hear such a beautiful song, and know that the beautiful people who think and sing like you, John, are somehow considered to be the "enemy" by the far-right. In a world without John Lennon (another John, by the way), we need thousands more like you, and songs like this to drown out the hate.
Cheers,
John

Hey that was a really great way to run with the skirmish Prompt to get a truly wonderful song! I tried my hardest to use the term as is.... wish I would have thought of you'd approach! This is such a compelling and lovely sentiment!

Not sure there's another word for this other than beautiful. The music is melancholy but there's hope in the words. Your voice always goes so well with your music and your guitar playing on this is, um, beautiful. Yeah, I really like this!

My kind of lyrics ... enjoyed the sentiments and the references in the lyrics. The presentation, with the guitar and vocal, was nice and intimate.

No, it's not plagiarism, it's a sincere follow up to Come Together (one of my fav Beatle songs). Unfortunately this kind of lyrics is still needed. Well done!
