Below is a list of songs that I think match my mood right now. 

I hope that you will join me in a moment of timeless stance against injustice and hate.

I'll start with one of my nearest and dearest favorites. It speaks to the ongoing struggles of people everywhere fighting to survive and to be treated fairly and just. 

This Sam Cooke penned 1964 release was taken up by the Civil Rights Movement and was an optimistic expression of the desire to end segregation and prejudice. 


Pete Seeger wrote this song, adapting the lyrics from passages in the Book of Ecclesiastes in the Bib2le. He recorded it in 1962, helping to cement his place as one of the greatest exponents of the protest song. The words state that there is a time for everything, including peace. The folk rock band, The Byrds, enjoyed the most commercial success with their cover version in 1965.


Bob Dylan’s most famous composition from 1963.  This is a fine example of a song that can be applied to different situations as it is non-specific and not tied in to any particular conflict.  It’s a universal plea for the human race to learn from its mistakes and a call to freedom. This song is a rallying call for anti-war protesters everywhere. It’s been covered numerous times, with versions from Peter, Paul and Mary, Bobby Darin, Elvis Presley and Neil Young.


The more things change the more they stay the same. The topic may have changed but the issue has stayed the same.

If you can't listen to this classic. Then here. Read the lyrics.

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It's s time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down


Income inequality is at an all time high with the government breaking the backs of everyone else to serve the rich.


Standing firm in history, once again we are called upon as a nation to stand up for the rights and safety of one another. 


Sadly it's not just in the south... and it's not just black bodies hanging from the trees. From the beaten and murdered, of the minorities still struggling along today and those who are still being cut down for who they are....were.

An updated cover...
