Revolution! by @hannahvsworld

I can’t say I know much about music at all, and I am clueless about 99.9% of the music out there, but here’s my attempt at a political/protest/revolution playlist that makes me want to change the world.

I discovered Grace Petrie last year on the Alternative Reality Tour, organised by comedian Josie Long. It was a tour about politics and protest, and since then I have been listening to lots of music with meaning. There are some songs that make you want to get out your seat and fight for a change, and some songs that make you feel like there can be a better future.

  1. Thunderclap Newman- Something in the air
  2. Gil Scott-Heron- The revolution will not be televised
  3. Bob Dylan- Times they are a changing
  4. Tracy Chapman- Talking about a revolution
  5. Billy Bragg- The world turned upside down
  6. Grace Petrie- Emily Davison blues
  7. Billy Bragg- There is power in a union
  8. The King Blues- Set the world on fire
  9. Ani DiFranco- Which side are you on?
  10. John Lennon- Imagine
