Music is an excellent medium to promote the concept of freedom and liberty as it is easy to express the emotions which being free and feeling free conjure up. I have chosen ten of what I believe to be the best songs for expressing the notion of how to be free – either being free or hoping to reach that state. Freedom is escaping an unwanted situation and remaining away from it, and it is especially connected to the sense of self reliance. Sometimes a good song or piece of music can inspire the individual to take that step and separate themselves from a place, a job or a relationship they don’t want to be trapped in. Everyone has their boundaries and limits, and most have a concept of how they see freedom. Hopefully, some of these tracks will inspire those considering making a break from drudgery or an oppressive situation to take the plunge and go for it.
