Hi everyone. Hope someone can help with a little research I’m doing for a publishing project. Give Peace A Chance became an anti-Vietnam war anthem at the Moratorium Day march in Washington on November 15. Lennon later said he’d seen it on TV and it was one of the proudest moments of his life. Does anyone have any evidence which reveals where John saw the footage. He and Yoko were in Greece on holiday in the early part of November. There are pictures showing them aboard a yacht and in places like Athens where he held a press conference in a hotel. I’m trying to pinpoint exactly where they were in Greece and when they came back to UK. Someone told me they came back on July 26 but EMI logs show them at Abbey Road on that day doing work on What’s The New Mary Jane . Many help gratefully appreciate. Thanks

That may be hard to pinpoint. He could have seen it on TV anywhere as I have to believe it would have made international news. I found this site which shows footage from the ABC network of Pete Seeger (voice only) leading the singing. The site does not say on which date this footage was originally broadcast.

Best of luck with your project.

From the forthcoming POB box-set, and just uploaded, the demo version of GPaC recorded and filmed at the Sheraton Oceanus Hotel in the Bahamas on 25 May 1969:

I was listening to the song “I’ve Seen All Good People” by Yes, and I noticed that the backup vocals are singing this in the background, at the end of the “Your Move” section, before it goes to the “All Good People” part.  They are singing “All we are saying….  is Give Peace A Chance “.  I remember this from back in the day, but I had forgotten and I just noticed it again.  Great song by Yes if you haven’t heard it, it was pretty popular at the time.

Wow, I’ve heard “Your Move/All Good People” a ton of times since 1984 (when I found a used 8-track of “The Yes Album”) and don’t remember having noticed that! So many different vocal parts in that song, building up as it approaches the fast part…I’ll have to give a listen for it later. 

(The song’s lyric also includes the phrase “Send an instant karma to me…”, of course…)

I love I’ve seen all good people. My dad used to put it behind the home videos he’d make. After the acoustic guitar comes in it always reminds me of my grandfather around the holidays. Great song for sure, never noticed the Give Peace A Chance quotes.

Haha, I wonder if John ever learned that the (Quebecois?-)French translation of “smoking” contained the word “BAGISM” ? Screenshot_20231129-185300_Gallery.jpgImage Enlarger
