‘Maximum Restraint’

Please listen and watch this. It’s by a folk-rock artist named Peter Himmelman, who writes uncommonly literate and sophisticated songs both for adults and children. This is the first work of popular music in America inspired by the Gaza war, and it will come as a deep (and I expect) extraordinarily heartening surprise to you. And here’s something he just published on the Huffington Post.

  1. JOEL TRACY says:

    Sound wise, the singer reminds me of Bob Dylan’s son (I believe). I forget his name this morning, but he had a hit song in the 90s called One Head Light.

  2. PAUL KAPLAN says:

    Peter Himmelman is Bob Dylan’s son-in-law.

  3. FRANK TECHNOW says:

    Bob Dylan himself wrote ‘Neighborhood Bully’ for the occasion of the first Lebanon war. This is arguably the best Pro-Israel song I know.

    Here is a link I found: http://www.popmodal.com/video/17195/Neighborhood-Bully-Bob-Dylan-Regarding-Israel–30th-Anniversary
