All I Want For Christmas… Is Peace On Earth

I was struck by the musical combination of U2, Brian Eno, and Luciano Pavarotti and how the vast differences in musical style very much complimented the other.  The tragedy that happened in the Siege of Sarajevo between 1992 – 1996, was touchingly conveyed in the 1995 U2 and Brian Eno song “Miss Sarajevo” where Pavarotti sings the opera solo.  Bono considers this to be his favorite song, and perhaps his magnum opus.  This song is a poignant reminder of the need for peace on earth.  May you all have peace this holiday season.
