makes you wanna shout

most beautiful tune I’ve heard in a long long time

Power In A Union from JD on Vimeo.

from John Darnielle’s vimeo page:

Everybody knows I don’t generally do the acoustic guitar guy rocking political jams deal but as a former member of SEIU 660 & the California Association of Psychiatric Technicians & a kid who benefitted from great teachers I wanted to spend tonight saying WE ARE ON YOUR SIDE xo jd

  1. I got teary-eyed watching this. I love that so many old union protest songs are being brought back by contemporary musicians. But I get grim when I consider that we have to fight for a right that my father and his coworkers took for granted in the 1960s.

    • I wasn’t teary-eyed, but it did warm the cockles of me own cold dead heart. it doesn’t hurt that I am a big fan of John Darnielle and The Mountain Goats.

      there are more old and new versions of work/labor songs where I grabbed this one from: the Lapham’s Quarterly tumblr
