Happy Xmas (War Is Over) was originally released by John Lennon as a single in 1971. It was written as a protest against the Vietnam War with lyrics about getting together and ends with the lines War is over, if you want it. This is a magnificent acoustic version from Breeze and Lisa where they alternate on singing the verses, sing together, and each gets to sing the counterpoint melody while the other is singing lead. As Breeze is a student of Lisa‘s their voices blend together well to produce an excellent performance in their own style. The video is a single take, straight-to-camera performance and it is great to see Breeze break out laughing at the end.
