CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
THERE IS POWER IN A UNION
“…There is power in a factory,
power in the land,
power in the hand of a worker.
It all amounts to nothing
if together we don’t stand.
There is power in a union ...”
Billy Bragg conveys the message that there is strength in unity on his self-penned "There Is Power In A Union". The song covers workers of all types and stresses the point that individually we are weak, but there is strength in numbers. He reminds us that historically, workers have been cheated and exploited by greedy bosses.
The track was included on Bragg's 1986 album 'Talking With The Taxman About Poetry'. Bragg wrote the song based on a traditional arrangement.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
