Woke up this morning with music streaming in my head. The first song was U2’s cover of “All Along the Watchtower,” but I quickly shifted to “Woke Up This Morning (Chosen One)” by Alabama 3. Most people, including me, are familiar with it as the Soprano’s theme song. So, why not a theme song for the day’s theme music.?
While looking for it, I came across Song Fact’s information about the song and the band. Nice to remember that the band is British and from South London, and the song is about Sara Thornton, a housewife who put an end to her husband’s abuse, stabbing him during an argument. Beyond that song, though, I’ve found them a band with interesting, unique music and powerful lyrics.
