This Monday we celebrate the life of a most amazing and transformative man, Martin Luther King, Jr, so this weekend’s theme is a tribute to this great man and the profound difference he made in our nation…and for that matter, the world.

Songs about freedom, justice, respect, protest or whatever best expresses your thoughts about the man, what he fought for or his legacy.

Pride (In the Name of Love) – U2

Power to the People – John Lennon

I Have a Dream – Common and Will I Am

We Shall Overcome – Bruce Springsteen

Freedom – Jimi Hendrix

Moodswings – Spiritual High (Parts 1, 2, and 3)
Parts 2 and 3 are the best. That’s Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders in Part 2 and the good doctor himself in Part 3.

Hi Patsy, I see you are still busy doing your good work.

We have seen her in concert 3 times here in Tokyo, she is really tremendous, not very tall, but her voice carries to every corner of the hall. I simply adore her.

Take care.

Great Patsy, thanks. Brings back happy memories of me whizzing around Tokyo on my bike with my Walkman on full blast. Oh happy days! 😀

She has a remix version of this song on her album with Joe Sample, never tire of listening to her voice.

One of my all-time favourites, tonight especially for you. 🙂
