Lazy Sunday Music: Playlist For the Revolution (That Was Televised)

Posted on: February 23, 2014

8Good Sunday, Widdershins.

I officially stand in awe of the Ukrainian people.  They decided that they had taken quite enough.  They took matters into their own hands.  They took it to the streets.  Police who fought them joined them.  Their legislature backed them.  Their President resigned.  The Prime Minister is out of jail, and a new election has been scheduled.  Well done, Ukrainian brothers and sisters.  Right on.

In homage to this well-done political action, I offer today’s playlist as well as numerous kudos.  Please join me by posting not only your favorite protest song, but also your thoughts on this or any other subject that might strike your fancy.

(1) Get Up, Stand Up –  Bob Marley

(2) Simple Song of Freedom – Bobby Darin

(3) Power to the People – Curtis Mayfield

(4) Ohio – Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young

(5) Subterranean Homesick Blues – Bob Dylan

Absolutely incredible! Off to catch up on this important story.

Not so much a protest song but good music.

The Emerson, Lake and Palmer version of the same piece.

An excellent tribute. Works for me.

Great youtubes. The Ukrainian revolt is amazing. I hope they get a decent government this time. It figures that Russia is on the side of the dictator again (as in Syria). I wonder if the West will ever agree with Russia on anything.

Loves me some Sting.

It’s a great tune and seemed to fit with Annies comment.
