:: TUNE OF THE WEEK #1 :: THE SONGS & THEIR STORIES ::
Hey folks, welcome to my latest weekly update on the website, Tune of the week, where I'll be shining a spotlight on a track from one of my albums or EP's and telling you some of the stories behind the songs. First up is the title track from my latest album entitled 'Revolution'.
I wrote this song after reading an article online about a protest in England on Guy Fawkes night which involved Russell Brand and some members of the Anonymous activist group. The article recounted how the marchers had chanted 'One Solution, Revolution' among other slogans as they marched that evening and it struck me that it would be a great chorus for a song and as I was already writing a lot of protest material at the time, this song came to be.
In the lyrics I'm simply trying to highlight the sheer madness of the world we live in, where we have abject poverty, hardship, starvation, suffering and death, all of which are completely avoidable only for the skewed system we live in, which protects the rich and persecutes the poor. The lyrics are also to say to people that we have the power and the numbers to make a change. We just need to stand together and take action.
