Paul Lynde would also play the character, but with a first name change of Harry, in the 1963 motion picture.

It's sung in a operatic voice (in the 1965 movie by Peggy Wood who played the Mother Abbess) as advice to Maria (played by Julie Andrews) who quickly realizes her destiny is with Captain Von Trapp and his children. - Peter

Pete Seeger Where Have All The Flowers Gone? Where have all the flowers gone, long time passing? "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" was written by folk singer and writer, Pete Seeger early in the Vietnam War era, before many protests even started. It started to become a protest song when Peter, Paul & Mary recorded it in 1962 for their first lp, and then sang it at several protests that associated the Vietnam War uneven drafting system (of aiming at poor and usually more black young men) with the Civil Rights movement. In the fall 1965, Johnny Rivers would record a more uptempo version of "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" (I have it on CD and also as an old 45 rpm and I think it's wonderful, although Rivers says he wasn't fond of his version) that fit into much of the angst that was just beginning to become even more outspoken protests about the Vietnam War in the last half of the 1960's, into the early 1970's. Other artists have also covered "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" (Judy Collins' version is probably one of the most poignant versions) and it still serves as a template for anti-War protests songs. - Peter

Peter, Paul & Mary Early Morning Rain In the early morning rain, with a dollar in my hand With an acing in my heart and my pockets full of sand I'm a long way from home, And I miss my  The rest of the opening: " ... loved one so, In the early morning rain with no place to go". "Early Morning Rain" was a mid-1960's (1965 or 1966) Peter, Paul & Mary song that showed how the trio had changed and even improved in songwriting skills since the 1964 4th lp. This song and others similiar to it, from this time period, took a lot more effort on the part of the listener to understand as should much folk music. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary If I Had A Hammer If I had a hammer
I'd hammer in the morning
Hammer in the evening

  - MOR
Peter, Paul & Mary One Kind Favor There's one kind favor I'll ask of you There's one kind favor I'll ask of you "One Kind Favor" was one of the few songs on Peter, Paul & Mary's 1964 4th lp written by them, in this case Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary For Lovin' Me That's what you get for lovin' me  - Candy Welty
Peter, Paul & Mary Hush-A-Bye Hush-a-bye, don't you cry, go to sleep you little baby. This was the last song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1963 2nd lp. The folk trio's 3rd lp, out the same year, would be much more ground breaking, introducing much of the world to at that time a little known folk singer/writer that was friends with Mary Travers, Bob Dylan, who himself would change the world of pop, rock and folk even more! - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Single Girl I was a single girl, Dressed in clothes so fine, Now I am a married girl, Go ragged all the time. "Single Girl" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1964's 4th lp. "Single Girl" is an original tune written by Paul Stookey and Mary Travers (one of the few written by that combination). "Single Girl" was also showing the way as to how Peter, Paul & Mary were develop through the rest of their career. Yes, the pop charts were not to hear from them for three more years, but their folk roots were firmly established and appreciated by the folk audiences who would also find themselves changing and forced to change by Bob Dylan picking up an electric guitar, groups such as the Byrds and eventually even by what many originally resisted, the Beatles and other British pop/rock artists. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Man Come Into Egypt There is a man come into Egypt, and Moses is his name When he saw the grief upon us, In his heart there burned a flame. A 1963 tune from Peter, Paul & Mary, written by Fred Hellerman and Fran Minkoff. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary All My Trials All my trials Lord, soon be over. "All My Trials" is both another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's groundbreaking 3rd lp, and a traditional spiritual that Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and Milt Okun arranged to address the Civil Rights movement of the decade of the 1960's. Peter, Paul & Mary were already changing the songs they were singing to be more complicated and more challenging to the listeners in terms of the lyrics. And soon Peter, Paul & Mary and all American artists would encounter a force greater than them that would make them have to change to even more songs that would challenge the listener and that force would be a group from Liverpool, England: The Beatles! - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Sorrow I am a man of constant sorrow: I've seen trouble all my day. "Sorrow" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1962 debut lp, Like "Early In The Morning" it was written by Noel Paul Stookey (the Paul in Peter, Paul & Mary), but unlike that tune it was co-written by Peter Yarrow (the Peter in Peter, Paul & Mary). - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary There Is A Ship There is a ship and she sails the sea. "There Is A Ship" is one more song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1964's 4th lp. "There Is A Ship" was one more traditional gospel tune arranged by Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey, Mary Travers and Milt Okun for a modern day folk audience. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary This Train This train don't carry no gamblers, this train. "This Train" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1962 debut lp. "This Train" was co-written by Stookey and Yarrow. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Three Ravens There were three ravens sat on a tree, Down-a-down, Hey! "Three Ravens" is from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1964 4th lp. While working on this lp, Peter, Paul & Mary must have been aware of the British Invasion onto the American charts started by a group named the Beatles! The songs on this 4th lp would be the last set of songs that the lyrics were borrowed from traditional folk sources and also with fairly simple and stripped lyrics. And Peter, Paul & Mary seemed to be shut out of the pop charts, as were many American artists by the British Invasion. But in many ways, Peter, Paul & Mary were set free by the British Invasion shutting them out of the charts -- in many ways future lp's would have even more challenging lyrics and they became even better folk artists -- and on the folk lp charts the trio's lps continued to sell. And by 1967, Peter, Paul & Mary would find themselves back on the pop charts commenting positively on the changes made by the British Invasion with "I Dig Rock & Roll Music". - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Early In The Morning Well early in the morning, about the break of day, I ask the Lord, "Help me find the way!" This was the first song on the folk-pop trio, Peter, Paul & Mary's 1962 debut lp, the one that included, "If I Had A Hammer". BTW, two corrections about what I wrote about in the information about "If I Had A Hammer" -- that song was co-written by Pete Seeger and Trini Lopez had the larger hit second after Peter, Paul & Mary's -- sorry, about that -- but wanted to correct those statements. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Jesus Met The Woman Jesus met the woman at the well. "Jesus Met The Woman" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1964's 4th lp. "Jesus Met The Woman" is another traditional gospel tune arranged by Peter Yarrow, Mary Travers and Milt Okun as a modern day folk tune. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Old Coat Take off your old coat and roll up your sleeves, Life is a hard road to travel, I believe. "Old Coat" is another 1963 song from Peter, Paul & Mary. It is taken from an old spiritual, "Jordan Am A Hard Road To Travel". Paul Stookey, Mary Travers, Elaina Mezzetti and Pete Sears arranged the tune specifically for the trio - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Go Tell It On The Mountain Go tell it on the mountain, Over the hill and everywhere, Go tell it on the mountain, To let MY people go.  "Go Tell It On The Mountain" is a song from Peter, Paul & Mary's groundbreaking 1963 third lp. It was groundbreaking for the source material and for the fact that Peter, Paul & Mary were quickly becoming a conduit for much of the 1960's angst, that in many ways was just beginning, over how much Civil Rights had not improved (and later on the issue of women's rights and human rights in general, worldwide), the fact that the Vietnam War was just starting to be a very big problem, and how the environment was being damaged. "Go Tell It On The Mountain" is a traditional gospel tune, with Paul Stookey, Peter Yarrow, Mary Travers and Milt Okun arranging the tune to send a message mainly about the Civil Rights movement. There would be more tunes such as that to come on this lp. And then there was the other source material that Peter, Paul & Mary used on this lp, and that was from Mary Travers friend, Bob Dylan's written songs. Yeah, Bob Dylan had already performed and recorded his "Blowin' In The Wind", but it took Peter, Paul & Mary's version to really sell it (even Dylan had to admit that Peter, Paul & Mary are what made the song known). And that song alone, "Blowin' In The Wind" that would be sung that August of 1963 at the Civil Rights march, live, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial would show just how much Peter, Paul & Mary were also growing as artists of the world. "Blowin' In The Wind" would go to #2 on the charts that summer of the beginning of the questioning of the world order as it had been that would continue throughout the 1960's and into the decades since! - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Bamboo You take a stick of bamboo, you take a stick of bamboo, You throw it in the water, Oh, oh, Hanaah. "Bamboo" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1962 debut lp. It was written by Von Ronk. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Lemon Tree When I was just a lad of ten, my father said to me, "Come here and take a lesson from the lovely lemon tree." "Lemon Tree" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's 1962 debut lp. "Lemon Tree" was written by Will Holt. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Very Last Day Everybody gonna pray on the very last day Oh when they hear that bell a-ring the world away.  A 1963 song from Peter, Paul & Mary. Written by Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Puff, The Magic Dragon Puff, the magic dragon lived by the sea, And frolicked in the autumn mist in a land called Honah Lee, Little Jackie Paper loved that rascal Puff, And  The rest of the opening line: "... bought him strings and sealing wax and other fancy stuff." "Puff, The Magic Dragon" started out as a children's book written in 1959 by a 19-year old Cornell student named, Lenoard "Lenny" Lipton. For the opening tune on their second lp, Peter Yarrow asked Lipton if he could add a some to Lipton's book and come up with a tune for the folk trio to start the lp. Lipton agreed and he got billing with Yarrow as a co-writer. "Puff, The Magic Dragon" was then Peter, Paul & Mary's best selling record, going all the way to #2 in the spring of 1963. On the surface, "Puff, The Magic Dragon" seems to be a simple children's tune, as was another similiar tune of that time, "On Top Of Spaghetti". But "Puff The Magic Dragon" is more than that, and if you listen closely it is an indictment against giving up everything in childhood after you are an adult, and also could be an indictment against being scared or afraid of something or someone different than yourself (both fitting into an environmental action tune, and a Civil Rights tune, perhaps?) "Puff, The Magic Dragon" hasn't been without controversy. Wrong, many people still think "Puff, The Magic Dragon" is about smoking marijuana. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary Cruel War The Cruel War is raging, Johnny has to fight, I want to be with him from morning to night. "Cruel War" is another song from Peter, Paul & Mary's debut lp. "Cruel War" was written by Paul Stookey and Peter Yarrow. - Peter
Peter, Paul & Mary  I Dig Rock And Roll Music I dig Rock and Roll music And I love to get the chance to play (and sing it). "I Dig Rock And Roll Music" was a pop/rock Top Ten hit for the usually strictly folk-pop trio, Peter, Paul & Mary back in 1967. "I Dig Rock And Roll Music" was co-written by Paul Stockley - Peter

Pink Floyd Stop Stop! I want to go home. From their 1979 The Wall album, used as a segue between "Waiting For The Worms" and "The Trial". It was one of the few songs in the movie version that was sung by Bob Geldof, who was portraying the main character Pink in his adult state (the other songs he sung were the two different versions of "In The Flesh", the first version that introduces us to the story, and the later version where Pink becomes delusional and fashions himself as a Hitler-type dictator). - Vic George

Pink Floyd Empty Spaces What shall we use to fill the empty spaces when we used to talk? "Empty Spaces" is a shorter version of "What Shall We Do Now?", which was intended to be used on the album version of The Wall, but due to its length was saved for use in the movie version. - Vic George

The Police Mother Well the telephone is ringing, Is that my mother on the phone? Another "Synchronicity" track. Sting nearly sounds insane on this track, or at least his mother made him that way. - Peter
The Police Walking On The Moon Giant steps are what you take walking on the moon.  - Larcen Tyler
The Police Miss Gradenko Don't tell the director I said so, But are you safe Miss Gradenko? Another "Synchronicity" track. This comes close on the track listing to "Every Breath You Take" (before that track), where you almost have to wonder if the person being stalked in the later tune is Miss Gradenko. BTW, Sting was supposedly at one point a victim of a stalking incident. - Peter
The Police Every Breath You Take Every breath you take Every move you make Every bond you break Every step you take I'll be watching you Although the Police had several hits since 1977, 1983's "Every Breath You Take" was the group's first #1 song on Billboard Magazine's HOT 100 charts (and so far, only). And it was a big one, logging eight weeks at #1 in the summer of 1983. Although used by many at weddings, "Every Breath You Take" is not really a romantic song, so says lead vocalist Sting. Sting says the song is actually about being a stalker. Sting would address this further two years later, in 1985, with his solo hit, "If You Love Somebody, Set Them Free". - Peter
The Police Synchronicity With one breath, with one flow You will know Synchronicity The title track to the Police's best selling album. Sometimes referred to as "Synchronicity", since there is a "Synchronicity II" later on the album. - Peter
