Continuing with the 70s soul sides, The Final Seconds' "Society" 45 is a funky soul effort out of New York. "Society" has plenty of great vocal harmonies, a groovy bass line, and uplifting strings. But what really puts it over the top is the socially-conscious lyrics:

Listen all you people, we're gonna change society
Blacks and whites together, that's the way we'll make this be
Have a demonstration, if it's the only way you see
To make them pay attention and listen to our plea

Society has been a crime you see
It's been making us enemies
We're gonna make them see how love can be
Brothers and sisters are no longer enemies

The combination of all these things have put this 45 on heavy rotation since I brought it home last weekend. Fantastic stuff.
