In the spirit of protest songs.....

This is a song I wrote back in 2010. I recorded it and reworked a video to it back in 2012.

The song is called HOPE & CHANGE

from a slogan that was popular back in 2008....

In 2012 I reworked the video to include pictures I took around NC as I drove from job site to job site and saw business after business closed down where once there had been thriving businesses.

Here is the link to the mp3 version and the lyrics: MP3 & Lyrics

enjoy it.

Although it played heck with my 3 minute attention span it is a well written song none the less.

Herb, Good write and although sad, I enjoyed the video. Given what's going on in DC right now, maybe we should all stay away from politics right now. Tom

Danny... yeah, it's a tad bit more than 3 minutes

Tommy..... I agree. A music forum is not a place to discuss politics... facebook is a better place for such discussions..... but, music is just fine. Even a protest song about a politician..... just critique it from a musical/songwriter POV.

Janice & Bud..... I enjoyed writing this.... it was actually a fairly fast write.

Josie.... length matters not in this song..... it wasn't written as a commercial attempt.

Noel..... glad you liked the sound.



So... if you're "game", here's another political song from 2012..... I'm including the link in this thread as opposed to making it's own thread. I really like the lyrics and how they seemed to flow effortlessly as I was writing.....this too was a quick/easy write.... believe it or not, I actually scrapped 2 otherwise good verses for the sake of keeping this song to a "reasonable" length..... there was so much more that could have and should have been said in this song..... but 5:36 is long enough, don't cha think?


If you want to hear it and have five and a half minutes.....Leave our country alone: http://soundclick.com/share.cfm?id=11879522
