Winter Revolution: A Holiday Playlist for the Rest of Us

5 12 2010

6. Kirk Franklin – “Revolution”

Why it’s on the list… Selected lyrics:

No mo’ racism… Two-face-ism/

No pollution… The solution/

Have a revolution/

Do you want a revolution?/

(wooh, wooh)

Do you want a revolution?/

(woh, wooh)

No crying, No dying/

Politicians lying/

Everybody’s trying to make a dollar/

It makes me wanna holla/

The way they do my life, the way they do my life/

There’s gonna be a brighter day/

All your troubles will pass away

A revolution’s comin’… ”

Great playlist! And I agree that the “Praise Santa” segment from Boondocks is pretty great! “Revolution” as a Christmas selection is a great idea, too…

I’d throw in some classics like “Sweet Little Jesus Boy” (simple yet profound) and “O Holy Night” (bit of abolitionist commentary).

I’ve been listening to a classical rendition (from the London Philharmonic) of Messiah over the last few holiday seasons. There’s some good stuff that Jones didn’t include. I had “Thou shalt break them” (from Ps. 2, follows the verses sung in “Why do the nations rage…”) stuck in my head last week. And of course, there’s the famous “Hallelujah Chorus”: “The kingdom of this world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ…” Hallelujah, indeed…

Have you heard Beck’s “Little Drum Machine Boy”? Hilarious and fun. 🙂
