Yellow Ribbon Project song

To: beaversmom

The main thing I remember about the song is how its theme was co-opted by the public for the Iranian hostages.

Instead of "Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb Iran" it was "Tie A Yellow Ribbon 'Round The Old Oak Tree".

That worked well.

lol...not so much, but hey it’s a pretty good tune. I do like Elton John and Kiki Dee, though. Another FEEL GOOD one. :)

I liked them even though I think they got stuck in a kind of musical rut.
