There are times when a song can lift our spirits,
sadden our hearts, enrich our patriotism, or seem
written for a later time.
While talking to our son he mentioned listening to
C.W. McCall’s “Classified” which was on the 1974 album Wolf Creek Pass. You may not remember the song,
but it might make you smile.
For some odd reason, this reminded of a rare single
from 1980 about the Iran hostage crisis. It was
considered a politically conscious song at the time.
“You guys in office!
You better listen!
We’re sick an’ tired of gettin’ took
This ain’t no crap game!
This is our future!
So run this country by the book”
Which reminded me of another of his songs from the
Wilderness album of 1976.
“There won’t be no country music
there won’t be no rock ‘n’ roll
’cause when they take away our country
they’ll take away our soul.”
McCall had bigger hits and more popular songs, but
we think these three are worth a listen. Love them or
hate them, agree with them or not, these songs should
at least make you think.
Comments are always welcome.
