I feel it in my finguhs, I feel it in my toes – summer is all around us. And so the feelings grows!
This post is in celebration of many things: the end of the school year, the beginning of summer, novels by the poolside, traveling, and life. I was listening to The People Speak soundtrack in my amazing new-found very limited free time, and wanted to devote a post to protest music. Here are some of my favs, but I want to hear yours!
These are in no particular order and just a few of tons of great protest songs:
The Temptations Ball of Confusion
Aretha Franklin Respect
CCR Fortunate Son
Edwin Starr War
Michael Jackson Black or White
Helen Reddy I Am Woman
Michael Franti and Spearhead Say Hey! (I love you)
Peggy Lee I’m a Woman
Joan Baez and Bob Dylan I Pity the Poor Immigrant
Bob Dylan The Times They Are A-Changin‘
Tracy Chapman Change (which I would love to link but can’t! if you don’t know it, go right now and listen to it. right now!)
Loretta Lynn The Pill
And I wish The Rolling Stones’ Gimme Shelter were in honor of homeless people.
Lemme hear your favs!
