With everything that is going on in America right now, I have found myself getting respite from songs. I love listening to a wide variety of music, but some days, I need a certain vibe to help me pretend that all is ok with the world (or myself).
All Songs Considered did a podcast in which they chose songs that were written for protest, the link is to my favorite – it is called “Work” by Charlotte Day Wilson. The lyric that empowers me the most is
“it’s going to take a bit of work..now that you’re here..woah oh work
The video also only shows women and members of he LGBTQ community, according to the artist, which on its own shows gumption.
I love being moved by music!
