Check out this video for the song Detroit 67′ – by the Sam Roberts Band.
“Detroit ’67” looks at the city’s illustrious history from the vantage point of the 1967 riots. This stirring song about somehow holding onto the light during the darkest of days is the closing track on “Love at the End of the World,”
It shows some great images of where Detroit used to be (I wish I could have seen/lived in Detroit during it’s heyday),.. as well as some really sad images (riots, fires, etc.) Oh yeah,.. it’s a pretty cool song too.
