In the late 1970s I lived in Boston, and was privileged to count among my friends two members of the band called Bright Morning Star. They did political music proud, with barn-stomping rhythms, clever lyrics, superb musicianship and a message that was perfectly in tune with their time.

This song is a perennial but of special relevance this spring. Sung by Court Dorsey with piano by George Fulginiti-Shakar. Music is by Molly Scott, and words by stephen Wangh.

“They pollinate the grass roots.  They bang away at the walls of indifference.  They celebrate humanity.
The six members of Bright Morning Star do a better job educating people to what’s right and what’s wrong on this crazy planet than a hundred politicians, teachers, and preachers... And they do it all with lightness, laughter, and love.”
