I was singing the praises of Ian Hunter to a friend a few weekends ago. This song is from his outstanding 2009 release Man Overboard and was one of my favorites from that year. The anger and indignation of the lyrics is somehow inspiring — it is a song so good that I had to share it again!
Hunger, anger, propaganda
ain’t it time we all grew up
and we all got dreams but nobody’s listening
sometimes flowers ain’t enough
