Here’s another hit from the successful and ever-popular children’s musical, Bugsy Malone. This has to be one of the most under-rated musicals in history. The soundtrack is a knock-out and manages to incorporate adult themes into a movie featuring only child actors. In this song and scene, we are reminded that tomorrow’s another day. We […]
The Sun Is Burning – Luke Kelly (Ian Campbell Song)
This haunting song was composed and written by Scottish folk singer, Ian Campbell, and first released in 1963 but made famous by Simon and Garfunkel, who included it on their first album, Wednesday Morning, 3 A.M., one year later. It tells of the horrors of a nuclear blast and was written at a time when the […]
Klandestino Palestino – Pro-Palestine Protest Song
The campaign to see justice done in Palestine is gathering momentum. Across our world, organisations and some governments are moving to counter the fascist and Apartheid policies of the rogue state of Israel. As a result, Zionists are becoming more desperate and dangerous in their attempts to smother all truth and protest. One powerful means […]
Gil Scott-Heron – The Revolution Will Not Be Televised
Originally posted on Rebel Voice:
This iconic song should be played regularly in our fractured world. Yet it can be heard only sporadically. Is that because the capitalist-owned radio stations don’t enjoy hearing a death-knell sounded for their corporate, blood-soaked culture? Just a thought, and one of many that Rebel Voice tends to suffer from.…
Dick Gaughan – The Father’s Song
Dick Gaughan is not only a Scottish folk hero, he’s a global folk sensation. His performances will send shivers of the best kind down your spine. The lyrics to his songs speak of everyday trials and dreams. The Father’s Song is a beautiful critique of the world as it really is. This is a true […]
Revolution – Fiach Moriarty (Irish Folk)
Here’s a timely ballad from a relative unknown, and up and coming star, of the Irish folk scene. If you like this, you can say that you heard this fine performer here first. If you don’t like it, then tell others that you heard it on the BBC… (ya gotta like his name if nothing […]
Battle Of New Orleans – ‘Second’ American War Of Independence (1812) Song
Here, for your delectation, are a number of versions of the popular War of 1812 song, The Battle of New Orleans. This particular episode was viewed by many as a second war of independence from Britain as confrontations were on the increase at this time between the Empire and the fledgling nation. It can be […]
Palestinian Song Of Resistance
This is a song of resistance for Palestine. Conflict and oppression breeds revolutionaries and nowhere are there more per head of population than Palestine. So long as the music continues, so long as the voices ring out in defiance, then the fight for justice and freedom will continue in the land of Palestine. The following […]
John Lennon And Yoko Ono – The Luck Of The Irish
This is a bit twee but Lennon’s heart is in the right place. Sadly, the same could be said for his unfortunate decision to let Yoko sing on this. Jaysus, but she’s brutal. She sounds like a badly injured crow trying to imitate Janice Street Porter.
Tracy Chapman – Talkin’ Bout A Revolution
Tracy Chapman was a huge talent, but has sadly disappeared from public of late. Rebel Voice wonders where she has gone to. This song is every bit as relevant today in Ireland, Scotland, England and the US as it was when first released. So what has changed in our societies? Enjoyed this? why not share?
Dana Lyons – Cows With Guns [Pop Satire]
Rebel Voice has great respect for rebel music, and has a section dedicated especially to such revolutionary songs of protest. This offering, Cows with Guns, must be regarded as one of the most unusual songs ever to have emerged from the pantheon of seditious melody (tongue firmly in cheek). The Chickens in Choppers is worth […]
Bobby Sands – Back Home In Derry
This beautiful song was written by the Irish revolutionary and martyr, Bobby Sands. The lyrics are among the best to be found in any Rebel Song. Rebel Voice highly recommends this song.
