#139 / Let's Hear It For (And With) Patti Smith

The picture shows Patti Smith singing, "People Have The Power." Click that link for the lyrics. You can click this link for a Wikipedia write-up

Smith wrote the song with Fred "Sonic" Smith, her husband, who died in 1994 at age forty-six. The song was released as a lead single from Patti Smith's 1988 album, "Dream of Life." Reading the lyrics is good, and reading about the song is fine, too. But listen to the song. That's the best thing. The YouTube presentation, below, is a really good way to listen. 

And as you do, you might remember something I said in a blog posting back on March 14th of this year

The rich have so much power because the rest of us don't use our own.
