Happy Music Monday! Sometimes people mean well, but execute poorly. That happens with songs about race more often than not. Scott's found five songs (mostly from white guys) that actually come from a good place, but kinda... well, nobody would call them instant classics. Even still, they attempt to do good and don't do any real harm. Maybe that's what's important with music? Who can say?
When you think social justice, you don't instantly think of Billy Idol. Nor do you think of a cyborg when you think of the LA Riots from the 1990s. And yet, here we are, listening to a song from Cyberpunk that was written while Idol watched fires from his house. The ending calls of "You could be King/I could be King" is not at all a bad message, it's just then when combined with a stop-motion monster movie... well, it is what it is. A slice of a very different time.
Four more to come, and then it's your turn!
