I'm a grammar pedant too as my dad corrected me from an early age (it finally sank in during my twenties!). So hearing this really grates! None of us is free. Grrrr! The song would be all right otherwise.

Yet another 'victim' song. I thought maybe the song was from the 50s. Nope, 2002.

 
note quite, originally released in 1993 by Ray Charles (getting little attention) - Solomon Burke and the Blind Boys of Alabama got the acclaim after the 2002 release b/c it was on an episode of House, MD.

This is a good version; I believe Ray Charles originally did it some time in the '90s.  I guess Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil will have to be contacted about their grammatical error by one of the folks here.

Well, I think there will be no radio stations around the world, presenting a "set" (30 min.) equal or even similar. Why? There may be many whys .... or do not know, or do not want, or are not interested, or lack of independence, or is not profitable (market dependency). Or all reasons combined. RP is different. "None Of Us Are Free". Is true. Like says no one are completly independent. Because we are subject, permanently, changes and alterations, that is the nature of the world in which we live. But, it is proven, it is possible to combine all the factors, market, industry, diversity, entertainment, without losing the "cable", without losing "sight", without sacrificing the values, artistic quality, memories, authenticity, tradition, talent, innovation, harmony. Because it takes know-how & art. When it seems that everything is already done, everything is invented, this is a terrible mistake. Because you have to pass the "baton" to new generations. You need to reinvent. Music can not be just an entertainment factor. This is reductive and alienating. Music can not or should become, to submit to a mere product of industrial manufacturing, and its creators in some "automata" handlers of electronic artifacts. The music has to have soul. Music has always, to be associated with the culture of the peoples in all its aspects, social, cultural, historical, political, spiritual. Only then will reach its goal. Producing well-being and satisfaction to those who hear and feel. This requires "know-how" and Art.
