Alicia Bay Laurel - Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream - sung in Japanese and in English

Alicia Bay Laurel performs - "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream," a visionary peace song written by Ed McCurdy in the late 1940s, along with a translation of the lyrics into Japanese created by singer/songwriter Maiko Kodama in 2013. Alicia is offering this video in hope that many people will learn this song and join her in singing it on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the first atomic bombing of a human community, August 5, 2015, in Hiroshima, Japan. She is hoping to have the event live-streaming on the Internet so that people can attend from wherever they are. The lyrics in both languages, including a phonetic rendering of the Japanese lyrics for English speakers, plus a guitar chord chart, are at http://www.aliciabaylaurel.com/LastNi...
