Let's finally get this thing started!

I have a list of opening tracks, well exactly three. One has a story behind it, one is fairly new, but epic, and one has been around for a couple years or so, but I still think a friend could do a cool cover of it. I have a friend who's a singer, I think he could do a good job covering this one, but he's never taken me up on the offer. I'm not sure how he'd do that though, because the video was in fact taken at Belmarsh, where Julian Assange is being held. That's why it's called, Behind these Prison Walls. You'd want to keep as much of the original video in tact as possible. Yeah, I just realized that, woopsy. this one has only been around for a few weeks, but I just heard it last week. Not much to say about this one, it's just a cool song.

This one though, does have a story behind it for me. this will forever be associated with January 4th, 2021. I used to sing this song efore every extradition hearing. I still do. When Judge Baraitser denied the US request on January 4th, 2021, everyone's prayers were answered. Of course there's still litigation going on, because the US decided to appeal that. Now whenever we sing this in church, I can't help but thinking of that morning in January a year and a half ago when we were all cheering!! I do a lot of dancing in church too, we just did this last Sunday.
