“Listen, I believe everythin’ we dream
Can come to pass through our union
We can turn the world around
We can turn the earth’s revolution”
Artist: Patti Smith
Song: “People Have the Power”
Album: Dream of Life
I’m on vacation this week, so you can chew on this topic for a while.
If Patti Smith wrote this song in 2017, how would its contents and delivery be different? How about every other artist who ever wrote a protest song?
