The two songs that inspire me currently are, 'power to the people', by John lennon, and 'something inside so strong' to make the hair stand up on the back of my neck, they're quite inspiring, alongside the old classic, 'the internacionale'

Can I get some Krautrock love in here?

Admittedly, it's a very hippy vision, but hey, it was the 70s. Besides, you can't tell me this doesn't instantly put you in a good mood.

Cha Cha 2000

Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000
Tanz auf die Zukunft
Mit mir
Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000
Dance to the future
With me
Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000
Gib acht
Dass niemand
Unsern Traum zunichtemacht
Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000
Gib acht
Cha Cha 2000
Laser blue eyes
Can see paradise
But the terror will grow
And the world will explode
Into a new moral code
We all need to
Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha
Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha
Change
We all need to change
And care
For the weak
And share
With the poor
Where will he lead us from here
Will it be drama
Or cha cha Belleville
Cha cha Belleville
Cha cha Belleville
Cha cha Belleville
So
Get out of your car
And walk on your feet
And move body move
Life is more
Than just eat
And stop drinking hard
And smoking and doping
You better start thinking
And you better start working
Deep inside yourself
This
Will be paradise
If we open our heart
If we open our eyes
Come on
And make it paradise
Where the rivers are blue
And the air is clean
And the grass green
We must work harder
We need better leaders
Who love us and don't sheat us [I think they mean "cheat".]
Don't sheat us
We must
Try try try try
It's getting 2000
It's getting 2000
Cha Cha 2000
It's getting 2000
Technology sympathy
Economy sympathy
Phantasy phantasy
We've got it all
But we don't know
Yet
So watch it
Your problems will grow
And break all over you
And then
You fall
Into a deep dream
And then
You wake up
And feel it
How it is
And how it could be
And then
You get up
And step into the sun
And feel it
Feel it
How it could be
And then
Do it
Tanz auf die Zukunft
Mit mir
Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000
Dance to the future
With me
Cha Cha 2000
Cha Cha 2000

And your
Laser blue eyes
Can see paradise
When the wars have all gone
And it's futur d'amour
And we care for the weak
And we share with the poor

From the same artist whose previous song I posted annunciating the critique of work we have a new one on the joys of the riot. (Inadvertantly?) subversive pop. tongue

Ace kids' TV from the late 60s/early 70s. Proper stirring stuff with revolutionary lyrics.

You've got to fight for what you want
For all that you believe
It's right to fight for what we want
To live the way we please

As long as we have done our best
Then no one can do more
And life and love and happiness
Are well worth fighting for

And we should never count the cost
Or worry that we'll fall
It's better to have fought and lost
Than not have fought at all

Let's always take whatever comes
And never try to hide
Face everything and anyone
Together side by side

Clearly it's this one.

...I told them if living means working forever
Then life is the stupidest rule
Wake up at seven, you're working at nine
What sadist invented this scheme,
Five out of seven each week of your life
'Cause you're working as part of a team
Your boss is an asshole controlling your life
Your paycheck your only concern
What a disaster you're wasting your life
Retiring once you've been burned...

I dunno if it's a libertarian communist song or if it's already been quoted on this thread but recently this song has been inspiring me, very beautiful.

LibCom anthem

Wouldn't it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn't have to wait so long
And wouldn't it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong
...
You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But lets talk about it
Wouldn't it be nice

You are very much mistaken comrade- the Leatherface version has more oomph.

Are you implying Serge Forward has lost his falurum, fal-diddle-i-urum, he's lost his falurum fal-diddle-fal-day, he's got no falurum, he's lost his ding durum?

I can assure you, Auld-bod, I've definitely got my mojo workin' wink

Potrokin, I'd agree the Leatherface version does have more oomph but so does any particular Eurovision song you care to mention. Doesn't makes them better either.

I think you're still on the yuletide sherry, something must be impairing your judgement anyway, especially if you are going to compare that song with eurovision.

Amazingly, the Leatherface version is actually worse than the Tracy Chapman version, a feat I would never have thought possible.
Talking of appalling songs that speak of revolution in the lyrics, please nobody posts What's Going on by Four Non Blondes, I've been through a fair bit lately but none of it compares with the horror of listening to that.

A great song, unlike anything by Abba
