To quote John Miles”Music was my first love and it will be my last”. Music is my passion, its power has no equal. A good song can make you happy, sad or angry, a great song will make you think.
There are songs that made a difference and made people think. Unfortunately nowadays artists only seem to care which toilet should be placed during their gigs, while they don’t mind being paid millions to perform in countries where nearly every human right is ignored and/or broken, but that is a different story. In this blog I want to focus on songs where artists saw real injustice and sang or wrote about it.
Although I don’t always agree with the message they were giving,I do respect them because they are doing it out of a noble principle.
Starting off with probably the most powerful one.
Billie Holiday – “Strange Fruit” (1939)
