SONG: War is over (if you want it)

Post #5 in our continuing Christmas music campaign!

This song by Mr. Lennon is one of my favorites during the Christmas season (and the rest of the year, frankly). It's message of peace and hope is as appropriate now as when it was written, and though no-one really holds a candle to the original, Joshua James does a pretty great job of capturing the weight of this beautiful song.

If you know any great versions of this one, let us know in the comments. We'd love to hear 'em.
