For The Change Of Seasons in Maine, The 7 Best Songs About Change…
...that is not "Changes" by David Bowie. Hey, we love The Thin White Duke, but that one's too easy. Celebrate the Autumnal Equinox by trying these on:
"I'd Love To Change The World" by Ten Years After - "Tax the rich! Feed the poor! Stop the war!". Considering that this record's from 1971, it's kinda scary to find that things haven't changed much at all.
"Redemption Song" by Bob Marley & The Wailers - An emancipation proclamation if there ever was one, and all he needed was his guitar. Beautiful.
"Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac - "But time makes you bolder/Even children get older..." You may not understand what you're going through, but you will come out on the other side better for it. Or something like that. Not being fearful is a pretty nice place to be, don't you think?
"Change In The Weather" by John Fogerty - The "Something's happening here" part of the chorus is rather unnerving. Which is the point.
"Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel - This one's like taking a long, deep breath before making the jump. When you find yourself having a hard time making a tough decision, "I did not believe the information/Just had to trust imagination" are a couple of lines that just might come in handy.
"What's Going On?" by Marvin Gaye - Another one from the really-not-too-distant past that feels like the soundtrack for what's happening right now in 2020. Came out the same year as the Ten Years After pick, 1971, so probably not a coincidence. Great lyric, great vocal.
"The Times They Are A-Changin'" by Bob Dylan - The Ultimate Final Statement for any and all call-outs for social change. Just the way it is, babies.
