"Alice's Restaurant"

I hadn't heard the whole thing in years, but today someone else posted it on her blog and I listened to the whole witty, light-fingered, pointed protest song, "Alice's Restaurant." It's probably too long for the Twitter-minded of today, but I stole it without compunction because it feels somehow right in my mind-heart panorama. Just a nice "hot damn!"


  1. I remember the first time I heard this. :)

    Those poor 27 8x10 color glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what it was to be used as evidence against us.

    If you want to end a war an' stuff, you gotta sing loud!

    Why haven't there been any good anti-war songs lately?

  2. Maybe (he said swinging a broad brush) the intelligence of both the singers and those listening to the songs has changed a bit?
