About the Song
"Revolution" from the album "MonaLisa Twins play Beatles & more" is a song by the Beatles, written by John Lennon and credited to Lennon–McCartney. Inspired by political protests in early 1968 in opposition to the Vietnam War, especially among university students, Lennon's lyrics expressed doubt about some of the tactics.
When the single version was released in August, the political left viewed it as betraying their cause. The release of the album version in November indicated Lennon's uncertainty about destructive change, with the phrase "count me out".
We love this song for its groove, for its guitar solo but most of all for its message. Like many of the Beatles songs this one will - unfortunately - be valid and relevant for many decades to come. We agree with Lennon that one cannot change bad conditions to the better with violence and revolution.
If things will be all right in the future we don't know yet, but for sure we all need to free our minds from negative emotions and thoughts. "Love and peace" may have degenerated into a naive cliché, but we can't think of anything else that will solve humanity's problems in the long run.
