‘Blue Sky Mine (with lyrics)’ by Midnight Oil
Oh, did I ever love Midnight Oil! Great band, great music, their political and social beliefs front and centre. Possibly my favourite of their extensive canon is this, very much on my mind, right now
‘Satellite’ by The Hooters
A cracking song in its own right, the accompanying music video, lampooning hypocritical Televangelist, was (and still is, IMHO) a thing of genius.
‘Das Model (Live)’ by Kraftwerk
Even though a) they’re German and b) I speak German, it sounds a little odd to my ear to hear Kraftwerk perform “Das Model” *in* German, because it was a huge hit in English, in the UK
‘Under a Glass Moon’ by Dream Theater
The first Dream Theater song I ever heard, ~1995, and it still blows my ears off :D
‘Honey’ by Lucy Ward
My current musical addiction? Anything by @LucyWardSings - she’s amazing, period. @amygahran - recommendation for you, for sure!
‘Killing in the Name’ by Rage Against the Machine
21 years on, but it still sounds so good, and so timely. I wish there were more bands making music with the anger of these guys
