While Leonard Cohen’s work is hardly “protest music” of the sort we might associate with the 1960s, his powerful poetry in song at times evokes a sense of resistance for me. Here, perhaps an obvious example—Democracy.

Another song that for me foreshadows our current state of affairs is First We Take Manhattan

These will be some of the background music for me in the coming years, much as they have been since they came out. However, now, with a renewed sense of urgency.

See “I ain’t no millionaire’s son” and “Silence ii—Sound of Silence” in this issue for more music related to the Resist! theme.
