David Rovics is a folk singer/songwriter with some interesting songs about big and small political topics – and a few love songs.

You can get all his songs for a price at iTunes or you can download them for free at the internet – and legally I might add. David has released most (all?) of his music under a Creative Commons license, so anyone is free to share the music, as long as it is not used for commercial purposes.

A lot of his music can be found here at soundclick.

A few of my favorites include these humorous tunes with a funny approach to different themes – big and small.

Parking Lots and Strip Malls
Cannabis Cafe
The Alligator Song
Sit Down to Piss
Polyamory Song
The Flag Desecration Rag
Evening News

Anti war songs (mostly about Iraq some more general)

Who Would Jesus Bomb?
after we torture our prisoners
Operation Iraqi Liberation

And finally this non-political romantic song

like i think about you

I just got home from a demonstration for a cease-fire in Lebanon and an end to occupation. I would have brought a camera, but forgot, so for now, no pictures from the event.

There were a number of speakers from a broad spectrum of parties and organizations.

As a ‘surprise treat’ David Rovics did one and a half number, before one of his guitar strings broke. I have, to my regret, never seen him live before today, but wanted to go a few of the times he has been playing in Denmark / Copenhagen. So it was kind of cool seeing him, although just for a short time.
