    "People Say" by Portugal. The Man (Album: The Satanic Satanist, 2009)

    “I hadn’t written that song, initially, on the demos we had done, and I came back to Alaska and my dad had bought me a banjo. He said, ‘Hey, you’ve gotta listen to Pete Seeger.’ (laughs). And just randomly, there was a show on TV about him and we were watching it and it was one of those things where I had to get up and write a song because my dad has such a connection with this guy’s music and we had just been talking about the war and Pete Seeger spoke out pretty strongly against Vietnam. It was just one of those connections between our time and everything my parents had gone through. People really lose track of the fact that there are people dying over there for something that we instigated and brought on ourselves.”
