Song of the day: Midnight Oil- Beds Are Burning
I’m looking out of my window and guess what? Yes, it’s snowing again.
Although it is snowing, I will not put in a summer song. I really want something more like rock.
And I have found some record which I came across in December last year, but which is really great.
Let me introduce you: Midnight Oil with Beds Are Burning.
The song is a protestsong, and its goal was to give land back to the Pintupi, Aboriginals in Australia who used to travel around in the desert.
Well, with this song, at least I can stand the snow some better. Tomorrow a new song!
