This beautiful ballad is representative of the decent people of England and their strong folk tradition.
Jess Greenberg (Hendrix cover) – Little Wing
This is a truly amazing cover of the Hendrix classic, or so I’ve been told as I couldn’t really hear the music, I got distracted. Joking aside, Jess Greenberg has a beautiful voice and can really handle the guitar.
Pulp – Common People
A song for the working class (and those trying to understand us)
Papa Roach – Scars
Cowboy Junkies – Sweet Jane
From the soundtrack of Natural Born Killers.
The Pogues – Thousands Are Sailing
A haunting ballad from one of the greatest bands of all time. This song evokes the memories of all those who were failed by the authorities in Ireland, be those authorities colonial or Irish. Millions have been forced to emigrate due to unnecessary hardships and deprivations in our beautiful land, from before the Famine, during […]
Rolling Stones – Wild Horses
This is a beautiful track. Because of songs like this, I would have to say that the Stones just shade it over the Beatles, for me. Sometimes Rebels fall in love too. Enjoy.
Iron Horse – Rocket Man
This version of the Elton John classic really rocks. Try to listen to it without tapping your feet… I dare you… but don’t do yourself an injury (stay away from the poitín (moonshine)), and don’t you dare marry your cousin, or aunt, or a hog. Rebel Voice would like to take this opportunity to apologise […]
Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here
For a true man of principle, Roger Waters… friend to the dispossessed, the oppressed, the persecuted, the forgotten, the ignored, the good… the people of Palestine.
Thin Lizzy – Whiskey In The Jar
A rock version of a traditional Irish ballad.
Waterboys – Fisherman’s Blues
A band from a wasted youth… oh so long ago…
Wolfe Tones – Joe McDonnell
This song is about one of the 10 Irish martyrs who died on hunger strike in 1981, fighting colonial rule and oppression. The lyrics tell a very emotive story and will be found to be relevant to those who fight injustice across the globe.
