Sevens (Politiko) :: Pete Seeger, Turn! Turn! Turn!

(Sevens, a feature on Aquarium Drunkard, pays tribute to the art of the individual song. From now through the November 4th election, Sevens will focus on political songs)

Protest songs and politically framed ballads are almost immediately associated with Vietnam-era musicians. Or maybe it's that those musicians are almost immediately branded as subverters of a cultural paradigm during such a seachange in the American substance. Nonetheless, their words and countercultural display of freedom marked a shift in artistic expression. They not only popularized free will . . .

Only the good shit. Aquarium Drunkard is powered by its patrons. Keep the servers humming and help us continue doing it by pledging your support.
