Four versions of Lennon’s I don’t wanna be a soldier

Very different styles, each one reflecting the spirit of a decade.

Cowboy Junkies (2005)

Mad Season (1995)

John Lennon (1971)

The official version from the Imagine album, last track on side A (does anyone ever mention album sides these days?).
