In honor of the good doctors day, Ive compiled a list of songs either paying tribute to MLK or spreading a message I do believe hed approve of.
Power to the People, Curtis Mayfield
It is now the nation's turn / for all to be concerned / We can be freer still / it is the people's will / And bring back the power for the people / that's all we ask in our country dear / the sick and the hungry are unable / protect them and those who may live in fear.
Motherless Child, Richie Havens, the Woodstock 1969 version.
Havens sings straight from the heart, his face almost pained when he bellows Freedom over and over again.
Black or White, Michael Jackson
Jackson promotes racial harmony with a John Landis-directed video that features a young and adorably rebellious post-Home Alone Macaulay Culkin.
