10 Songs For A Revolution – Revolutionary Themed Music and Socialist May Day

Every good revolution needs a theme tune – in the past, stirring marches and giant orchestral pieces were composed, but sometimes a simple tune written and sang from the heart can be enough to inspire people to rebel. In this video I look at ten of what I think are the best revolution-themed songs and pieces of music, written and performed by both famous and obscure musicians, but each extremely heartfelt.
I also look briefly at the Socialist May Day festival (especially regarding workers and pioneers), as it was such a major factor of life out here, and at the Czechoslovak Velvet Revolution, and the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine.
Disclaimer – Please note, and I can’t reiterate this enough, the choice of songs listed does not necessarily reflect my own political or cultural ideology. I chose them because they do what it says on the label, and they do it extremely well. No doubt some people will be offended. But, then again, some people get offended by the mere existence of another. If you are the type to regularly require a safe space, then this is probably not the list for you.

The Top Ten list of Revolutionary Songs begins at 5:37

My name is Edward O'Toole and I live in one of the wildest, most beautiful parts of Europe, in the Carpathian Mountains of Eastern Slovakia. Life is an adventure - both physically and metaphysically... I've been living out here for the last 22 years, along with my wife, 3 kids and Jack Russell. My main interests involve bushcraft, prepping, survival and wilderness living (self-sufficiency and self-reliance), ecological, green, smart and natural solutions, motorcycles and motorbike club life, writing and art (I have 7 published books), and exploring the paranormal.
