The Tape Deck: Fit For A King

Monday, January 17, 2011

Happy Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!

Not necessarily all the songs in this week's Tape Deck are meant to be in line with Dr. King and his legacy. Some songs were picked simply because they have apt keywords like "king" and "freedom" in their titles. Still, their are few notable tracks sprinkled about that keep King's dream of freedom, positive changes, and equality for all in thought. 10 tracks for you to consider on this special day :) 

1. Happy Birthday - Stevie Wonder (1981)

2. Your Love Is King - Sade (1984)

3. Freedom - The Pointer Sisters (1985)

4. King of Rock (Live Aid Performance) - Run D.M.C. (1985)

5. Gonna Make Changes (1984 MLK Jr. Special Performance) - Phyllis Hyman (1978)

6. Wake Up Everybody - John Legend & The Roots (ft. Melanie Fiona and Common) (2010)

7. King of Wishful Thinking (TOTP Performance) - Go West (1990)

8. Freeway Song - Vicki Sue Robinson (1978)

9. Freedom Dance (Get Free!) - Vanessa Williams (1991)

10. Pride (In The Name Of Love) - U2 (1984)
