A song a day: Midnight Oil - Dreamworld

OWS edition: Again with the lefty songs I had to include my favourite Midnight Oil song. Dreamworld is essentially about the cost of environmental damage at the expense of commerce but apart from that, it's just a rocking song. Great riff, great backing vocals and displaying the power of the band at its best. Strangely, I used to sing this song in relation to my workplace when some mini-fiefdoms came to were coming to an end rather than what it's about - it's such a great line "Your dreamworld is about to fall." Whatever you think about Garrett entering politics, Midnight Oil's legacy is undeniable and vibrant.
