Thread Name: Req: Songs of political despair
Subject: RE: Req: Songs of political despair.......
"Thousands of 60s and 80s protest songs."
Songs of hope Richard - those were the days before our lives were taken over by 'the suits' and when we believed we could sing the shit away.
"A-Begging I will go."
You have to be joking - one of the most 'two fingers up to the world' that I know.
All the political songs I know and sang were 'up yours' songs; can't think of ones of despair.
