I have chosen to analyze the two songs “Imagine” by John Lennon, and “I Feel like I’m fixing to die rag” by Country Joe McDonald and the Fish. Both are about peace and war, but “I Feel like I’m fixing to die rag” is more satiric and makes the whole thing about war seem so worthless. The song was written during the Vietnam War, and it says that no one really knew what they were fighting for, and that it was more like a competition to have your son been send away to fight in this war where you had to kill all of the enemies to win. It was like it wasn’t your war, but you had to be in it anyway and fight against people that might as well be just like you. The young soldiers, like it is said in the lyrics, really didn’t know “what are we fighting for.” There was no one who knew why, because they didn’t care. In the lyrics they say “don''''t ask me I don''''t give a damn”, like the people really didn’t care, but I think that deep inside they really cared, but were afraid to say so. Back in the 1960’s there was no other option besides fighting; if you said that you didn’t want to fight you could go to jail. So the boys didn’t want to know why, because they thought that go to war is nobler than to say that you don’t want to and go to jail. Their grandfathers had fought in the Second World War and their dads had fought in the Korean War, so it became quite natural that they went to war in Vietnam.
Imagine, on the other hand, is more about the things that starts a war. If we, for instance, didn’t have any religions or countries we shouldn’t be fighting. We should see what brings us together, try to live in peace and just live for the moment. Not be afraid about what’s going to happen tomorrow, because we can solve it when it has happened, and probably things isn’t going to happen because we all live in harmony. Like the lyrics says “imagine there''''s no countries, it isn''''t hard to do, nothing to kill or die for”, we won’t have anything to fight for, because we don’t have anything that is just our own. We share everything and when we don’t have any “lines” to cross we don’t really have anything to fight for. In the lyrics it is also said that it can be hard for us to imagine that we don’t have any possessions. I think it’s because we are used to owning things, and it’s really hard for us to share and to trust each other. Although we should really t...
