"Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" is a song written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, released as a single in 1971 by John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and the Plastic Ono Band on Apple Records, catalogue Apple 1842 in the US, and Apple R5970 in the UK. Initially, the song was not a success in the U.S., due to lack of promotion and being recorded too close to Christmas, but it eventually reached #4 on the British singles chart in 1973; a UK reissue after Lennon's death in 1982 gained two notches, stopping just shy of the top position at #2. The song's first appearance on album was the 1975 compilation Shaved Fish. Although ostensibly a protest song about the Vietnam War, it has become a Christmas standard and has appeared on several Christmas albums. The lyric is based on a campaign in late 1969 by Lennon and Ono, who rented billboards and posters in eleven cities around the world that read: "WAR IS OVER! (If You Want It) Happy Christmas from John and Yoko". The cities included New York, Los Angeles, Toronto, Rome, Athens, Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Helsinki. At the time of the song's release, the US was deeply entrenched in the unpopular Vietnam War. The line "War is over, if you want it, war is over, now!", as sung by the background vocals, was taken directly from the billboards. It was recorded at Record Plant Studios in New York City in late October 1971, with the help of producer Phil Spector. It features heavily echoed vocals, and a sing-along chorus. The children singing in the background were from the Harlem Community Choir and are credited on the song's single. Happy Xmas on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Xmas_(War_Is_Over)
