Best Song with a Message – John Radcliff

17 Song with Message

This year at CXCW we received several videos of original songs dealing with important issues, be it a political issue, a natural disaster, self-harm, or the man keeping the little guy down. All of the songs were wonderful, but we felt like the best one was by John Radcliff discussing a recent chemical spill into a river near his home in West Virginia, thus poisoning of the water supply in Charleston. Based on today’s pop music some people may say that protest or activist music is dead, but we know that music with meaning is alive and well at CXCW.
