River Run Red — Midnight Oil

One of the best riffs of any song I've heard. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I8Fi3lIMItM From 1999's Midnight Oil's, Blue Sky Mining.  One thing I love about this band is their acute caring for Mother Gaia.  The whole CD is a work of beauty and caring for precious things. the daily prompt -- riff
