    Default Music with a strong message for the times

    Music is one of the greatest ways for the people themselves to speak out.
    It seems where other messages are censored lately, music is still allowed on the internet.

    Here is a song with a particularly touching message:
    "We're all bozos on this bus"

    Sorry to go off target for a moment, stumbled across an old Guns n Roses song - Civil War, looked up the lyrics and was impressed that a band of that ilk could pen this

    Lyrics
    Look at your young men fighting
    Look at your women crying
    Look at your young men dying
    The way they've always done before

    Look at the hate we're breeding
    Look at the fear we're feeding
    Look at the lives we're leading
    The way we've always done before

    My hands are tied
    The billions shift from side to side
    And the wars go on with brainwashed pride
    For the love of God and our human rights
    And all these things are swept aside
    By bloody hands time can't deny
    And are washed away by your genocide
    And history hides the lies of our civil wars

    D'you wear a black armband
    When they shot the man
    Who said "peace could last forever"
    And in my first memories
    They shot Kennedy
    I went numb when I learned to see
    So I never fell for Vietnam
    We got the wall of D.C. to remind us all
    That you can't trust freedom
    When it's not in your hands
    When everybody's fightin'
    For their promised land
    And

    I don't need your civil war
    It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
    Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
    In a human grocery store
    Ain't that fresh
    I don't need your civil war
    Ow, oh no, no, no, no, no

    Look at the shoes you're filling
    Look at the blood we're spilling
    Look at the world we're killing
    The way we've always done before
    Look in the doubt we've wallowed
    Look at the leaders we've followed
    Look at the lies we've swallowed
    And I don't want to hear no more

    My hands are tied
    For all I've seen has changed my mind
    But still the wars go on as the years go by
    With no love of God or human rights
    'Cause all these dreams are swept aside
    By bloody hands of the hypnotized
    Who carry the cross of homicide
    And history bears the scars of our civil wars

    I don't need your civil war
    It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
    Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
    In a human grocery store
    Ain't that fresh
    I don't need your civil war
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no
    I don't need your civil war
    I don't need your civil war
    Your power hungry sellin' soldiers
    In a human grocery store
    Ain't that fresh
    I don't need your civil war
    No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no
    I don't need one more war

    I don't need one more war
    No, no, no, no uh-oh-uh, no uh-oh, uh no
    Whaz so civil 'bout war anyway?

    Anyone listened to Tomas McDonald ?

    Here is his channel
    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEl...a05jRzc2PfmGqQ

    This music in particular


    Interesting guy, it is hardcore rap for many, he seems to have no strings attached to anything, doing on his own, but that I would have to dig more to know.

    Anyway strong message, specially about Covaids.

    There is quite a lot of old folks listening to him.. he got appreciated by the elderly instead of the young people.

    Moody Blues - In the Beginning (1970s)



    First Man: I think, I think I am, therefore I am, I think.

    Establishment: Of course you are my bright little star,

    I've miles

    And miles

    Of files

    Pretty files of your forefather's fruit

    and now to suit our

    great computer,

    You're magnetic ink.

    First Man: I'm more than that, I know I am, at least, I think I must be.

    Inner Man: There you go man, keep as cool as you can.

    Face piles

    And piles

    Of trials

    With smiles.

    It riles them to believe

    that you perceive

    the web they weave

    And keep on thinking free.

    Is every mind connected to form a peer to peer network that creates the illusion of a shared reality, making the appearance of material reality a simulation created through shared beliefs?

    Brave New World
    Close your eyes and sleep
    Ignore all the burdens that you keep
    Come whatever may
    They could never harm you anyway
    Stirrings in the wind
    Resonates a whisper from within
    Warnings from afar
    Telling you to heed the morning star
    Waking from the dream
    Witnessing the smoke that's rolling in
    The end is what you fear
    The scent of embers lingers in the air
    It's like a web there is no escape from
    It's got you trapped and you long for freedom
    Every wish every dream was granted
    Never knowing what they demanded
    You see the wall how it's getting higher
    You want to fight but you're all divided
    It's not a world anyone can thrive in
    Is this the world we were meant to grow in?
    Somebody tell me where are we going?
    A brave new world will rise
    If we do not act upon its lies
    Hold your tongues no more
    Learn from all the ones who came before
    Catch the wind and fight the storm
    Through the fury we're holding on
    Take your time but not too long
    Make it worth the time you own
    You woke a fire inside of me
    Fanned the flame and made it breathe
    You woke a fire inside of me
    Inside of me
    Inside of me

    Harmony's thread Creativity to Inspire and Transform might be the closest, Doug. Many creative endeavors by members have been posted there already.

    Here is a song with a particularly touching message:


    Thank you for sharing, this HK song was a revelation and a big success in France on social networks in the middle of covid

    Dancing Again lyrics by HK
    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart
    Oh, no no no no no
    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart

    We are birds of passage
    Never docile nor really wise
    We don't pledge allegiance
    At dawn in all circumstances
    We come to break the silence

    And when in the evening on TV
    Mr good king has spoken
    Came to announce the sentence
    We show disrespect
    But always with elegance

    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart
    Oh, no no no no no
    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart

    Auto-metro-work-consumer
    Automatic certificate that we sign
    Absurdity on prescription
    And woe to him who thinks
    And woe to him who dances

    Every authoritative measure
    Every whiff of security
    See our confidence fly away
    They are so insistent
    To confine our consciousness

    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart
    Oh, no no no no no
    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart

    Let's not be impressionable
    By all those unreasonable people
    Fear sellers galore
    Distressing, to the point of indecency
    Let's keep them away

    For our sanity
    Social and environmental
    Our smiles, our intelligence
    Let's not be without resistance
    The instruments of their madness

    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart
    Oh, no no no no no
    We want to continue to dance again
    See our thoughts embrace our bodies
    Spend our lives on a chord chart

    Thanks for sharing the lyrics, Lunesoleil. And I loved the video above. What a great movement that song was for France in the heart of covid. So full of uplifting human spirit. THAT is the kind of protest we need more of everywhere.
    It was great how more and more people were inspired to remove their masks as the music went on.

    Thank You Carlitos.
    I read the lyrics from your song above, and see it as another song of strength and spirit.

    "I am very happy
    So please hit me
    I am very, very happy
    So come on, hurt me
    I'll grow back like a starfish
    I'll grow back like a starfish
    I'll grow back like a starfish
    I'll grow back like a starfish"


    Our inner spirit... they can't take that away from us!
    And we shall stay strong.




    "The kids couldn't hurt Jack
    They tried and tried and tried
    They dropped things on his back
    And lied and lied and lied and lied and lied
    But they couldn't stop Jack, or the waters lapping
    And they couldn't prevent Jack from feeling happy"
    "We're all bozos on this bus"

    You better think (think)
    Think about what you're trying to do to me
    Think (think, think)
    Let your mind go, let yourself be free
    Let's go back, let's go back
    Let's go way on, way back when
    I didn't even know you
    You couldn't have been too much more than ten (just a child)
    I ain't no psychiatrist, I ain't no doctor with degrees
    But, it don't take too much high IQ's
    To see what you're doing to me
    You better think (think)
    Think about what you're trying to do to me
    Yeah, think (think, think)
    Let your mind go, let yourself be free
    Oh, freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom)
    Oh, freedom, yeah, freedom
    Freedom (freedom), oh, oh freedom (freedom)
    Freedom, oh freedom
    Hey, think about it, think about it
    There ain't nothing you could ask
    I could answer you but I won't (I won't)
    But I was gonna change, but I'm not
    If you keep doing things I don't
    You better think (think)
    Think about what you're trying to do to me
    Oh Lord, think (think)
    Let your mind go, let yourself be free
    People walking around everyday
    Playing games, taking scores
    Trying to make other people lose their minds
    Ah, be careful you don't lose yours, oh
    Think (think)
    Think about what you're trying to do to me, ooh
    Think (think)
    Let your mind go, let yourself be free
    You need me (need me)
    And I need you (don't you know)
    Without each other there ain't nothing people can do, oh
    Oh, hey, think about it, baby (What are you trying to do me)
    Yeah, oh baby, think about it now, yeah
    (Think about forgiveness, dream about forgiveness)
    Think about forgiveness
    Think about it, baby, baby
    Think about forgiveness
    Think about forgiveness
    Think about forgiveness

    This one was from Bush Jr. days, what with derivatives, bail-outs, The Patriot Act, etc. Sadly, Ron Paul never stood a chance.
    But I did like the song.
