>Neujahrsmahnung: Stevie Wonder "Blowin’ In The Wind"


>Wenn ich mir die Nachrichten so anschaue, gibt es eigentlich keinen Grund irgendwas zu feiern. Tod und Verwuestung in allen Ecken der Erde; meuchelmordende Terroristen, die sogar mich als ueberzeugte Gewaltgegnering dazu verleiten ihnen die Pest an den Hals zu wuenschen. Hunger, Verzweiflung, Verstuemmelungen … Was gibt es denn da zu feiern?

Wie weit hat es die Menschheit denn tatsaechlich gebracht in all den Jahrtausenden? Mir scheint, ausser besseren Tischmanieren und dreckigerer Luft haben wir nicht viel vorzuzeigen. Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ In The Wind ist als Neujahrsmahnung deshalb heute noch genauso angebracht wie vor fast 50 Jahren!

Blowin’ In The Wind Text von Bob Dylan 

Interpret: Stevie Wonder

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
Yes, ‘n’ how many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, ‘n’ how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind,
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, ‘n’ how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, ‘n’ how many deaths will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind,
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.

How many years can a mountain exist
Before it’s washed to the sea?
Yes, ‘n’ how many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
Yes, ‘n’ how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn’t see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind,
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
