5 Waterloo Rising – for Funeral-type actions
Song by Grace Gillan accompanied by Blythe Pepino
Music by Hans Zimmer
Change is coming we are few but we are strong
Time’s been wasted and we haven’t got too long
Mother’s dying we can feel it in our bones
So we’re rebelling ‘gainst a system that is wrong.
Listen HERE: this is a beautiful, moving video of the UK rebellion in April 2019
The very first 30 seconds of the video is the tune. Repeat this bit to get familiar.
You never get to hear the harmony on its own, but as you watch the video you will get to hear the melody on its own a few times. About half way through the song stops.
