John Denver - Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream

April 24, 1971 video of John Denver singing "The Strangest Dream" at a peace march in Washington DC. The song, written by Ed McCurdy about 1950, became one of the anthems of the Vietnam war era. If you have trouble playing here, click to see it on YouTube.

* Why "A Million Copies"? It's a significant number; an audacious goal. It's a phrase perhaps best defined by Ed McCurdy's lyric in "Last Night I had the Strangest Dream"; "...and when the paper was all signed, and a million copies made..." Listen to John Denver sing these words on this page.
