Sí, jo també penso que va sent hora d'actualitzar una mica el bloc, però com que estem espessos, no tenim massa temps, i la ressaca  post-migranyeixons encara ronda per aquí (o sigui... bàsicament per gosseria jajajaja), ho deixem fins a que arribi el setembre que també ja gairebé el tenim aquí :D

Si dels 80 l'himne per la pau i solidaritat per excel·lència va ser el "We Are The World", de la present dècada (com anomenarla? els 00? jaja) si me l'haguéssin de fer escollir a mi seria el "Where Is The Love" de Black Eyed Peas. Ja sé que és una cançó molt escoltada, però a banda de ser molt bona, és també la cançó d'ón he tret el símbol interrogant que tinc escampat per tot arreu (detall friki... fins i tot en tinc una camiseta! jajajaja)

Aquí la teniu, amb imatges de la guerra d'Irak del 03, just quan va sortir.


Black Eyed Peas - Where Is The Love

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Badness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)

It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With the ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin'in people keep on givin'in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our own direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive to lovers bound

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

  1. M'encanta la cançó, de fet va ser a través d'ella que em vaig coménçar a interessar pel grup!

    Tenen cançons realment bones (pel meu gust), ara si hagués de triar-ne una entre elles potser si que aquesta seria la millor candidata a ser un himne!

    Ja m'hi havia fixat amb lo dels interrogants!

    Petons

  2. A mi també m'agrada!!! Tot i que potser no és massa del meu estil, però sí, m'agrada i a més el títol, per desgràcia, encara està d'actualitat.

  3. Gran cançói gran himne, tot i que realment l'estil tampoc és dels meus preferits. Aquesta cançó, però, es deixa sentir, i la lletra té algun sentit, més enllà de l'estètic, cosa d'agrair avui dia.....

    Petonicos i, tot i que encara queden cinc dies, ànims per l'inici del curs!!!!

    Quines ganes tinc que tot et surti de nassos i puguis aprovar les opos..... Ains lu meu PGME....

  4. Desde mi modesto punto de vista, la canción es muy buena pero no original: Marvin Gaye ya cantó What's going on y What's happening brother en 1971. La letra de los Black Eyed Peas bebe mucho de el disco de Gaye de 1971.
