GUEST,reggie miles Help! - Folk Protest Songs? (36) RE: Help! - Folk Protest Songs? 24 Sep 05

As powerful as many protest songs are, I find much greater satisfaction singing the ones I've written. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's just the way everyone who writes feels about their own material. I certainly have very strong feelings about the songs I've composed. After having completed around fifty original songs I've noticed that many contain similar themes. I suppose that's because we write about that which we know and can understand. Protest and injustice are some of the themes that seem to find their way into many of my songs. Poverty is another strong theme. Again we write what we know. There are also many messages of love, hope, and a healthy dose of humor. I find being able to laugh in the midst of such adversity very healing and unifying.
