One thought on “Best Political Songs of 2020

  1. What is music if it isn’t a social relationship, a communication, a prayer for the living? I’m gonna chuck in a couple into Andy’s playlist, if that’s Ok. The first are the buskers at Kangaroo Point Central Apartments in Brisbane during the refugee solidarity blockade in the latter half of 2020. Here is Dorothy and friends singing a cover “Many the Miles” to the men locked up inside, many for 8 years.
