Political Songs

I got into a Twitter conversation a few days ago when I shared with someone that even though my politics were essentially centre-right socially conservative, I did appreciate some explicitly left-wing music, citing Billy Bragg as an example. So, here are three political songs that are well written and that I appreciate, even if I don’t endorse.

For those who don’t know this one, The Farm’s “Altogether Now” was a 1991 anti Gulf War song

Interestingly, all the above are left-wing. For balance, here’s some Austrian music about restoring the monarchy. You may recognise the artist.

Over to you. Do you have any favorite political music? Let us know below (and YouTube URLs will handily embed the video).
