I've been toying with the idea of putting together an album or double album of songs to celebrate the new American Revolution of the 21st century.
But now I'm thinking that we're beyond the mere concept of revolution at this point. Revolution to me is like tilling a plot of land into garden soil: you're bringing bottom to top but you never know what you'll find under there.
A renaissance is different. We all - not just us but everybody on this planet - has some ideas for how things could be different and better. We all - the '99%' for lack of a better term, the proletariat, the masses, all have ideas for what a better future could look like.
Also, revolutions/renaissances need good music so I want to compile an album. Here's 1 song everyone should love if they don't already:
Steve Winwood - Back In The High Life
