A Month Of... Working On The Chain Gang...

From King and "Love & Pride" yesterday, we get to Tom Robinson Band and "Glad To Be Gay"...

How? From "Pride" to the "Gay Pride" festivals / marches to "Glad To Be Gay"... it's funny watching people sing this, because the chorus is so catchy it's so easy to start singing along by accident... and then they realise what they're singing and... suddenly... go... quiet...

Tom Robinson Band is one of these groups that I came to know by having siblings that are 14 or so years older than me... my sister likes them, and I got to know of a few other of their songs through her (everyone knows "2-4-6-8 Motorway", right? If not, check it out via the link, and also "Martin" (which is brilliant) and "Power In The Darkness", which is still powerful today).
