Günter Grass hat recht: Weltkrieg ist schlecht - Michel Montecrossa's CD about controversial poem
Mira Sound Germany releases on Audio-CD and DVD, Michel Montecrossa's New-Topical-Evolver-Song triggered by the controversial Günter Grass poem ‘Was gesagt werden muss / What has to be said’.
Michel Montecrossa says:
“‘GÜNTER GRASS HAT RECHT: WELTKRIEG IST SCHLECHT / GÜNTER GRASS IS RIGHT: WORLD WAR IS BAD ‘ is a New-Topical-
Listen to ordinary people in Israel or Iran and all over the world. They talk with each other in the internet and want peace, not war. To wish for the destruction of a nation is not what the people want. That’s why I sing this song triggered by a poem which is somewhat lopsided and certainly controversial, but at the same time a good occasion to think about ways for proper handling of complex realities which pose a threat to the life of us all.”
Song Lyrics (translated from the original German Song Lyrics)
GÜNTER GRASS IS RIGHT: WORLD WAR IS BAD
Günter Grass is right: World War is bad. / We have to speak about the root of all / hate and misunderstanding, / of blindness and of anger, / of conflict and ill will.
Günter Grass is right: about facts we have to talk / free in mind and true, ready to find the ways / to peace and understanding, / to celebration of humanity, / to joy of human unity.
Günter Grass is right: trading of weapons is a danger / strengthening war in the world and willingness to kill. / Better let us strengthen / the readiness to live together / and to solve our problems together.
I see the people everywhere: they don’t want wars. / Old and young want peace and love for all the world, / good work and not poverty / freedom and the contacts / connecting all and making us happy.
