Day 14/100: Bill Fay – “Shame”
Our First 100 Days was started by the Secretly Group and 30 Songs, 30 Days. A song is released every day for the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency; for a $30 donation, you can access all of them. Donations go to support causes dedicated to the climate (The People’s Climate Movement), reproductive rights (All Above All), immigration (Cosecha), LGTBQ (Southerners on New Ground), community (Hoosier Action) and music (Revolutions Per Minute). Visit Our First 100 Days to donate and learn more.
Song #14 comes from English singer, pianist and songwriter Bill Fay who has been making records for 50 years (like 2015’s lauded Who is the Sender?). While some songs in this series don’t seem overtly like protest songs, Bill’s clearly is. Listen to it, and the previous songs in the series, below.
