Gold and Silver - Toots and the Maytals

No-one expressed the injustices of the world better than Frederick Hibbert aka Toots. And if you doubt the sincerity of his despair at the inequalities of wealth in this world just listen to the end of this, when he no longer has the words to express how he feels, and his vocal becomes an inarticulate plea punctuated by a series of half strangled "no"s.

"Share out the gold

split up the gold and silver"

please, you richest one per cent of the world's people who own half the planet's wealth, listen to this.
