Freedom

Album: Get Into Something (1970)
Charted: 72
  • This funk song finds the Isleys summarizing Get Into Something's theme of independence as they discuss the meaning of freedom. Ron Isley explained to Rock Genius: "I wanted to say you can do what you wanna do, say what you wanna say, live how you wanna live, go where you wanna go, that's free. That's what it's about. Then you're free, when you can do all these things – what you should be able to do."
