Revolution rock! top 10 protest songs : number 2
2. Billy Bragg – Power In A Union:
Ok…I didn’t actually play this on the day, as the man himself gave us a live version! Had he not done so, then it would have been 100% on my playlist. It’s a classic track for occasions such as this. It’s inspiring, it’s singalong and it’s bloody well true.
“The Union forever, defending our rights,
Down with the blackleg, all workers unite,
With our brothers and our sisters from many far off lands,
There is a power in a Union.”
