Mike's Top Twenty Political Songs

Later this week, we'll have the results of a report we've done on the disparity between charter school and district school funding.

In the mean time, inspired by Rep. Urquhart's top ten movies list, we present Mike's Top 20 Political Songs of All Time (in no particular order).

Redemption Song - Bob Marley
Sunday Bloody Sunday – U2
If I Had a Rocket Launcher – Bruce Cockburn
Right Here, Right Now – Jesus Jones
Invisible Sun – The Police
Wind of Change - Scorpions
Cult of Personality – Living Colour
Sonderzug nach Pankow – Udo Lindenberg
99 Luftballons - Nena
Sympathy for the Devil – Rolling Stones
Revolution – The Beatles
The Trees – Rush
Okie from Muskogee – Merle Haggard
Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue - Toby Keith
Fortunate Son – Creedence Clearwater Revival
Rain on the Scarecrow – John Mellencamp
Star Spangled Banner – Jimi Hendrix/Francis Scott Key
Borrowed Time – Styx
Rockin’ in the Free World – Neil Young
We Didn’t Start the Fire – Billy Joel

What, no taxpayer songs?

There are some tax-protesting songs out there, but most of them are mediocre. Here are some:

Taxman, Mr. Thief - Cheap Trick
1040 Blues - Robert Cray
Taxman - The Beatles

Good list. I started one, but got too bogged down by the possibilities.

Nur der kleine Udo
Nur der kleine Udo
Der darf das nicht
Und das verstehen wir nicht!

In da club - 50 cent
I'm Bringing Sexy back - Justin Timberlake (Sen Knudson's campaign song)

Nice list. I put together my own list of top-ten political songs a few weeks ago that amazingly has no song in common with your list (though I did consider Sunday Bloody Sunday -- maybe it will make my next list)
