John Legend & The Roots - Wake Up Everybody

AMSTERDAM - Wake Up! beoogt te doen wat de albumtitel zegt: mensen wakker schudden. Met covers van protestsongs uit de jaren '60 en '70 moedigen John Legend & The Roots pro-activiteit, hoop en optimisme bij hun landgenoten aan.

Wake Up! is opgenomen rond de zege van Barack Obama bij de Amerikaanse presidentsverkiezingen van 2008. Diezelfde verkiezingen waren de directe aanleiding voor de samenwerking tussen popzanger John Legend en hiphopformatie The Roots.

Ze wilden muzikaal uitdrukking geven aan de bijzondere sfeer van destijds in de VS en doen dat op Wake Up! met twaalf covers van nummers uit de sociaal en politiek roerige jaren '60 en '70.

“Het idee was dat de liedjes de huidige situatie zouden reflecteren”, vertelt Legend (31). “Van Hard Times, over de frustratie die hoort bij het arme leven in een harde stad, tot I Can't Write Left Handed, over de situatie van een gewonde soldaat. De songs moedigen mensen aan om actief, hoopvol en optimistisch te zijn.”

VAMA feat. Ralflo - Sarkozy versus Gypsy


De in Roemenië bekende rockband Vama heeft donderdag samen met Roma-musici een single uitgebracht over het uitzetten van Roma door Frankrijk. Vama wil met het Engelstalige lied ‘Sarkozy versus Gypsy’ op een grappige wijze het beleid van de Franse president Nicolas Sarkozy aan de kaak stellen.

,,He, he, Sarkozy, waarom houdt u niet van zigeuners?’’ zingt Vama. En: ,,We zoeken naar een oplossing, maar u besluit dat we niet kunnen blijven.’‘

De zanger van de band, Tudor Chirila, is een ster in Roemenië. Hij erkent dat de Roma-kwestie complex is. Chirila pleit voor verbetering van het onderwijs voor Roma-kinderen in alle Europese landen.

Frankrijk kwam onlangs internationaal onder vuur te liggen wegens het massaal uitzetten van Roma naar Oost-Europa.

Supertramp - School



I can see you in the morning when you go to school
Don't forget your books, you know you've got to learn the golden rule
The teacher tells you stop your play, get on with your work
And be like Johnnie too good, don't you know he never shirks
He's coming along

After school is over, you're playing in the park
Don't be out too late, don't let it get too dark
They tell you not to hang around and learn what life's about
And grow up just like them, won't let you work it out
And you're full of doubt

Don't do this and don't do that
What are they trying to do?
Make a good boy of you
But do they know where it's at?
Don't criticize, they're old and wise
Do as they tell you to
Don't want the Devil to
Come and pull out your eyes

John Lennon - Working Class Hero




As soon as your born they make you feel small,

By giving you no time instead of it all, 

Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all, 

A working class hero is something to be, 
A working class hero is something to be. 

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school, 

They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool, 

Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules, 

A working class hero is something to be, 
A working class hero is something to be. 

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years, 

Then they expect you to pick a career, 

When you can't really function you're so full of fear, 

A working class hero is something to be, 
A working class hero is something to be. 

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV, 

And you think you're so clever and classless and free, 

But you're still fucking peasents as far as I can see, 

A working class hero is something to be, 
A working class hero is something to be. 

There's room at the top they are telling you still, 

But first you must learn how to smile as you kill, 

If you want to be like the folks on the hill, 

A working class hero is something to be. 
A working class hero is something to be. 

If you want to be a hero well just follow me, 
If you want to be a hero well just follow me.

Excuses Cameron voor Bloody Sunday


De Britse premier Cameron heeft excuses aangeboden voor het optreden van het leger in Derry tijdens Bloody Sunday. Hij deed dat bij de presentatie van een rapport 5000 pagina's waaruit blijkt dat het ingrijpen totaal ongerechtvaardigd was.

Cameron: "Wat is gebeurd, had nooit, nooit, mogen gebeuren". "Namens ons land betuig ik diepe spijt", zei Cameron.

Op 30 januari 1972 vielen 14 doden toen Britse militairen schoten op katholieke demonstranten. Geen van hen vormde een bedreiging. De militairen verloren hun zelfbeheersing en handelden in strijd met de instructries. Slachtoffers werden beschoten terwijl ze vluchtten of gewonden probeerden te helpen.

Bloody Sunday leidde tot een escalatie van het geweld in Noord-Ierland.

Tears for Fears - Sowing The Seeds Of Love


High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man
And the lovetrain rides from coast to coast
D.J.'s the man we love the most
Could you be, could you be squeaky clean
And smash any hope of democracry ?
As the headline says you're free to choose
There's egg on your face and mud on your shoes
One of these days they're gonna call it the blues
And anything is possible when you're Sowing the Seeds of Love
Anything is possible - Sowing the Seeds of Love
I spy tears in thier eyes
They look to the skies for some kind of divine intervention
Food goes to waste !
So nice to eat, so nice to taste
Politician Grannie with your high ideals
Have you no idea how the Majority feels ?
So without love and a promise land
We're fools to the rules of a Goverment plan
Kick out the style ! Bring back the jam !
Anything...
Sowing the Seeds
The birds and the bees
My girlfriend and me in love
Feel the pain
Talk about it
If you're a worried man - then shout about it
Open hearts - feel about it
Open minds - think about it
Everyone - read about it
Everyone - scream about it !
Everyone
Everyone - read about it, read about it
Read in the books in the crannies and the nooks there are books to read
Chorus !
(Mr. England Sowing the Seeds of Love)
Time to eat all your words
Swallow your pride
Open your eyes
High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man
And the lovetrain rides from coast to coast
Every minute of every hour - " I Love a Sunflower "
And I believe in lovepower, Love power, LOVEPOWER !!!
Sowing the Seeds
An end to need
And the Politics of Greed
With love

Ben Harper - Welcome to the cruel world



Welcome to the cruel world
Hope you fine your way
Welcome to the cruel world
Hope you fine your way
It's a cruel world
Try to enjoy your stay

Yes it is a cruel world
When you're tryin' to get by
It's a cruel world
When you've seen the look in their eye
Makes life hard living
But I'm so scared to die

Welcome to the cruel world
Welcome
Welcome

Don't know how
We've lasted here so long
There must be more good than bad
Or we'd already be gone
And if you get up to heaven
Before I do
I'm gonna tell ya
It's gonna be cruel there too

You can't hide from this cruel world
Cause there is no place to run
You can't hide from the cruel world
There just is no place to run
It's been cruel from the beginning
It will be cruel when we're done

So when I'm gone
I will gladly say goodbye
When I am gone
I will gladly say goodbye
And if you want to feel me
Put your hands up to the sky

Welcome to the cruel world
Welcome
Welcome
Hope you find your way
Try to enjoy your stay

UB40 - King



King, where are your people now?
Chained and pacified.
Tried in vain to show them how.
And for that you died.

You had a dream of a promised land.
People of all nations walking hand in hand
But they're not ready to accept
That dream situation, yet.

King, where are your people now?
Chained and pacified.
Tried in vain to show them how.
And for that you died.

Bettie Serveert - Deny All



You’re scared
What for?
There’s a demon lurking at your door
He said beware
I’m gonna get you when I find you there

You’ve got to make a choice, that’s your life
How many times did it pass you by?
Grab it by the throat, grab it while you can
Don’t say that you don’t understand

Deny all (if you cut it like that)

Decide
Tout de suite
There’s a dragon lying at your feet
She said beware
I’m gonna get you when I find you there

But you know it’s such a lie, so obscene
How many times did you have that dream?
Now grab it by the throat, grab it while you can
Don’t say that you don’t understand

Deny all (if you cut it like that)

Tell me what you want
Don’t be shy now...

Buffalo Springfield - For What It's Worth (Monterey 1967)



There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware
I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind
I think it's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side
It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Rumi Poem, Iranian Music and Divine Dance

Gebaseerd op een gedicht van de soefi Rumi.

This video is on the theme of divine love, unity, oneness and the similarity of nations / religions. My only message,is that we all are ONE, but have different ways to express the VERY same feeling of longing for finding the divine within and melting with IT. My purpose in making this video was to share the feeling of UNITY and to show how similar we are.

God is separate from nothing and nothing is separate from God. We are all ONE. Nothing else matters. God loves every human being who ever lived, lives now, or ever will live

My flesh my bones my soul I own
My mind's a weapon immune from infection
Blood in my eyes, my vision is clear
Parasitic your syphilitic

Illusion of democracy

Bob Marley - Chant Down Babylon



Come we go burn down Babylon one more time
(Come we go burn down Babylon one more time);
Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon);
For them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
Them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
So come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon)!

Men see their dreams and aspiration-a
Crumble in front of their face,
And all of their wicked intention
To destroy the human race.

And how I know - and how I know - and that's how I know:
A Reggae Music, mek we chant down Babylon;
With music, mek we chant down Babylon;
This music, mek we chant down Babylon;
This music, come we chant down Babylon.

Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon one more time);
Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon);
For them soft! Yes, them soft! (ah-yoy!)
Them soft! Me say, Them soft! (ah-yoy!)
So come we go chant down Babylon one more time
(Come we go chant down Babylon)!

Me say, Music you're - music you're the key,
Talk to who? Please talk to me,
Bring the voice of - of the Rastaman,
Communicating to - 'cating to everyone.

How I (know) - how I know, how I (know) - how I know -
And that's how I know:
A Reggae Music, chant down - chant down - chant down Babylon,
Chant down Babylon, chant down Babylon,
Chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music, chant down Babylon!
Reggae Music! (chant down Babylon) /fadeout/
