(NaBloPoMo Day 6)
Three songs about Native Americans; one quite well-known, one not as well-known (but my favorite of the three, as it’s by one of my favorite bands!), and one by a hair band who had a day in the sun in the late eighties, but has since been mostly tragically forgotten until the movie Hot Rod featured several of their songs in its soundtrack and musicians such as MATT and KIM, Laibach, and Chamillionaire sampled their songs:
Iron Maiden – “Run To The Hills”
The Cult – “American Horse”
Europe – “Cherokee”
And a song by a Native American – sort of. I’m foregoing Redbone and others here and choosing instead a song by Ozzy Osbourne in which Randy Castillo (Apache) had a part in writing and, of course, performing:
Ozzy Osbourne – “Crazy Babies”
Who are some of YOUR favorite Native American musicians and performers? Let’s see them in the comments!
