"Something In The Air" as written by Steve Winwood, Muff Winwood and Spencer Davies....
Call out the instigators
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Lock up the streets and houses
Because there's something in the air
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

Hand out the arms and ammo
We're going to blast our way through here
We've got to get together sooner or later
Because the revolution's here, and you know it's right
And you know that it's right

We have got to get it together
We have got to get it together now

    General Commentclassicrockgirl: Too bad Pete Townshend wasn't in the band. It was a band from England that consisted of Andy Newman (Keyboards), John "Speedy" Keene (Vocals, Drums), and Jimmy McCulloch (Guitars). McCulloch went on to be a guitarist for Paul McCartney's Wings in the mid-70s. McCulloch was only 16 years old when playing the guitar on this song. Pretty impressive!

    This song is from the movie "The Magic Christian" starring Peter Sellers, which starred Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr.

    General CommentI first heard this song in almost famous when they were all singing it in the hotel. That isn't the only reason i happened to like this song though, the song itself is an excellent one. I like the message being sent in it also.

    General CommentI think you'll find this is one of the greatest songs ever written. And magnifiko, given that this song was released in 1969/70 its more likely Tom Petty did a cover of it, although, having said that, i've never yet heard it in any of his work.

    General CommentThe song was in the early '70's student protest movie "The Strawberry Statement" (and "Almost Famous").
    A song about violent revolution ala "Street Fighting Man".
