[Top 5 Tuesday] Remember Remember the Fifth of November
Today is Guy Fawkes Day, so what better way to celebrate than with songs of revolution! Here are my [Top5], what are yours?
5 – The Clash “White Riot”
No matter how many times I hear this song, it always makes me want to run through a brick wall.
4 – Gil Scott-Heron “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”
3 – CSNY “Ohio”
The story goes that Neil Young saw what happened at Kent State, took his guitar into the woods and came back fifteen minutes later with this song. Crosby once said that Young keeping Nixon’s name in the lyrics was “the bravest thing I ever heard.”
2 – The Rolling Stones “Street Fighting Man”
“What can a poor boy do ‘cept sing for a rock and roll band?” …maybe the best line in rock history.
1 – The Beatles “Revolution”
Could there be any other number one?
