This is Actually Fun: Music
#1
This musician is really stirring it up for me... memories of Oakland Calif back in the 80's.. there was a music venue in a basement where a woman and her band (Maureen Howl and the Wailers or something like that) rocked the joint with hot, soul filled blues.

Someone was reading this page and I wondered what was on it.  Pia., your link is broken as often happens with music links.  Here's the link to the bands website,

https://fantasticnegrito.com/

and a link for the first song that came up for me.  
Fantastic Negrito – A Boy Named Andrew (Official Video)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JurP6tybN0

I remember old sixties hippie music.  Here's one of my favorites.  This song still has a message for us today.  

Quicksilver Messenger Service - What About Me
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBvjXhUSUpU

I haven't breathed fresh air since the sixties before the fallout really filled the sky.

But I'm fond of old folk music too, so here's one about the least of us.

Thanks, Horse! Great music choices, those are. I also like John Trudell's native american muse. This is him discussing life, responsibility and 'freedumb' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p_oNWVgpoDw

He's got some good words there.  Hard to follow that with a song.

Then, I run out of words and let the music speak.

More good musical choices, Horse. And, here's some classics, playing right up our alley, “No Nukes” – MUSE “Musicians United for Sustainable Energy” Concert 2011 - YouTube

It's the same... that's alright, it's still good to watch/listen. We could do with another MUSE concert to raise awareness before the olympics.

Looking for the Power song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6x70J_aPT80 and came across these classic and lovely voices, Joan Baez and Mimi Farina https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWkVcaAGCi0 Bread and Roses.

Music didn't fulfill its promise to raise our awareness and the technology marched right over our souls. So I need to include:

Barry McGuire - Eve Of Destruction (1965)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdWGp3HQVjU

and something to remind me of what has gone and what we've gained.

Peter Paul & Mary - Early Morning Rain (1966)

Great throwback on music history and how nukers and fossil fuel and coal industry just marched over our souls as you put it. Haven't heard these folks in a very long time. Thanks for the walk back in time.

Horse, I was thinking of how songs were succesful in mobilizing war protests in the sixties, thought about the line, Where have all the flowers gone (Dylan's Blowin' in the Wind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3l4nVByCL44) and in looking for that song, found this, interestingly enough from the Council on Foreign Relations...

The Twenty Best Vietnam Protest Songs https://www.cfr.org/blog/twenty-best-vie...test-songs

I think the difference is people were losing their lives, families were losing their fathers, husbands, brothers in Vietnam while people find income generation working in dirty, dangerous and deadly energy industries.

I wonder... can that reality be turned upside down? Can we get people to see that nuclear is just as bad as Vietnam was?

You might like this version.

Where Have All the Flowers Gone? (Marlene Dietrich)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-9t7LbNpQcE

Music was there to remind them of the horrors of war but it was seeing the action on TV at dinner time that put so much pressure on politicos to stop the destruction.  That's why the Iraq war and subsequent skirmishes have embedded reporters to control the narrative and information the public gets to see.  Even the early protest songs were seen as a threat to the establishment and didn't get the air time that sex, drugs, and rock n roll got.  

The young people know something is wrong.

Thanks for the Marlene version, I think you are right, my memory is of women's voices... lots of them at protests when I was a kid... I wasn't watching the tv news or other shows documenting the horrors. All about perspective, different folks responded to different stimuli.

I hadn't hear Imagine Dragons before, I like their music... that Radioactive is haunting, as is Belle and Sebastian.

Here's one that some of the 'Nam vets liked to hear play. That war changed many lives, it changed mine. None of the songs changed anything. They still march us off to wars they don't have to pay for. They have nuclear bombs to keep us afraid and they have nuclear power to keep us under control. They still lie to us because no one wants to die. It's amazing that I grew old in such a world.

You have identified the crux of the problem - "They still march us off to wars they don't have to pay for. They have nuclear bombs to keep us afraid and they have nuclear power to keep us under control. They still lie to us because no one wants to die. It's amazing that I grew old in such a world."

They haven't changed - we have, but, 'they' are still the same greedy warmongers they always were.
