With everything that is going on right now I feel it is important to remember that nothing is new here.

Do we still get protest music? I would love to invite you to a peacefull sit in with some music to inspire peace and refute hate.





Share your favorites.

"Strawman"


"We who have so much to you who have so little
To you who don't have anything at all
We who have so much more than any one man does need
And you who don't have anything at all, ah

Does anybody need another million dollar movie?
Does anybody need another million dollar star?
Does anybody need to be told over and over
Spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard?

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil

Strawman
Strawman
Strawman
Strawman, yes

Does anyone really need a billion dollar rocket?
Does anyone need a $60,000 car?
Does anyone need another president?
Or the sins of Swaggart parts 6, 7, 8 and 9? Ah

Does anyone need yet another politician
Caught with his pants down and money sticking in his hole?
Does anyone need another racist preacher?
Spittin' in the wind can only do you harm, ooohhh

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil

Strawman
Strawman
Strawman
Strawman, yes

Does anyone need another faulty shuttle
Blasting off to the moon, Venus or Mars?
Does anybody need another self-righteous rock singer
Whose nose he says has led him straight to God?

Does anyone need yet another blank skyscraper?
If you're like me I'm sure a minor miracle will do
A flaming sword or maybe a gold ark floating up the Hudson
When you spit in the wind it comes right back at you

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil

Strawman
Strawman
Strawman
Strawman "

A classic, sung in nearly every big protest:



Another Lennon to the mix:



This one ain't old fashioned, but it damn does the job I think.



Peace

Awsome song, I actually used to drink in the same pub as the drummer so I particularly like this song!

I changed my avatar as a few people seemed to think I was some kind of opressive rightwing religious type and got into a few arguments.

I might change it back though

It's not really a protest song but it inspires peace.

When The Music's Not Forgotten by Deadman

Please come close, for I long for you to hear
Hear the sound
That will rid you of your fears
In a land, where no water can be found
In a place, where there is no fertile ground
Longing for, yearning not to be forgotten
In a time, when the music is forgotten
In a time, when the music is forgotten

In the truth (in the truth)
Speaks of great and mighty things
Teaching us (teaching us)
What the peace of heaven brings
We must give (we must give)
We must give to all the others to those in need (those in need)
Who we fear to call our brothers

Reaching out (reaching out)
So that we are not forgotten
In a time (in a time)
When the music is forgotten
In a time (in a time)
When the music is forgotten

If we stand on a hill and do not touch
How can we do good?
If we wash our hands of all our friends
What change can really come?
If we hide our fears and don't draw near
Have we really lived?
Or are we all just standing here
Hoping there is grace?

In a dream (in a dream)
That I had not long ago
Visions of (visions of)
of a city made of gold
And a sound (and a sound)
That I never heard before
Such a sound (such a sound)
Saturating to the core
Such a sound (such a sound)
One that cannot be forgotten

[x4]
In a time (in a time)
When the music's not forgotten

Haha that's lame, but I'm glad you've changed it back for the time being! Every time I see it I think of Walter Bishop on one of his crazy mental trips.

I love the visual symbols used:

Michael Jackon's "They Don't Care About Us" arranged and performed by 2 Cellos.



Sting's "We Work the Black Seam"



Oingo Biongo "War Again"

Coincidentally I am re-watching Watchmen and I heard that song just moments ago.
