Yellow Rain

From the album Future World
Dall'album Future World
Lyrics available at/Testo ripreso da
Questa pagina/This page

A song on Vietnam veterans. Considered heroes when they left, and criminals when they returned. They were only pawns in a game, not knowing what they were fighting for, but they were the ones who were blamed.

Which Side Are You On

Copyright: Keith McKenry 2006
From/Da Centre For Political Song




"This song is my response to the obscenity of the so-called 'War on Terror', an obscenity compounded by the aggressive fiction peddled by the United States Government that in regard to its unprovoked invasion of Iraq, an invasion unrelated to the horrific September 11 terrorist attack on the United States but obscenely piggy-backing on it, that we are either 'for them or against them'. As every day goes on, and each side in Iraq becomes more enmeshed in perpetrating horror against innocents, we need increasingly to stand up and cry 'Not in our name!'" -Keith McKenry.

Who Rules The World?

Nathan Sloniowski
Copyright 2004 by Nathan Sloniowski
From/Da Centre For Political Song
"This song is a very Canadian one - somebody watching television at dinnertime as planes crash into buildings, people starve in different parts of the world, and digesting the evening meal of mayhem with a very cynical, passive and I think Canadian 'gosh, shucks, glad it's not me and I live here not there, pass the peas please' sense of detachment. It's a form of detachment that is utterly deadly because if the majority of people in developing countries take the screen-zombie approach, powerful countries like the United States will increasingly drape their flags around death and destruction to secure resources and other geo-political objectives with nary a peep out of the rest of the world (except perhaps, activist songwriters!). I chose a bemused, satirical approach to the lyrics, including the blatantly country &... (Continues)

Song For Hugh Thompson

[December 1998]
Lyrics and music by David Rovics
Testo e musica di David Rovics
David Rovics' Official Website

"I was in a wonderful cafe (Hyperion Espresso) in Fredericksburg, Virginia, when I read in the paper about this helicopter pilot who landed in My Lai near the end of this horrible massacre perpetrated upon Vietnamese peasants by American troops. I never knew until I read this article that certain American troops were also involved with finally putting an end to it. The only reason Hugh Thomson's heroic story emerged after thirty years was because the government of Vietnam was preparing to give him a medal for his actions, and the U.S. Army decided it wanted to try to avoid being upstaged." - David Rovics.

Compagno col kashmiv

Detto fatto. Non c'è stato neppure il tempo di abituarsi all'idea, ed ecco che il perfido Riccardo Scocciante, che oramai ha preso a definirsi il "Cantastorie Carogna", se n'esce fuori con una nuova composizione. Stavolta, ohimé, ha preso di mira un noto politico italiano di estvema sinistva, uno che animava le manifestazioni per la pace con tanto di bandierina, uno che si faceva fotografare col Subcomandante Mavcos, uno che...insomma, uno che adesso espelle dal partito chi dice che in Iraq l'Italia c'era andata a far la guerra e a difendere interessi economici, non una "missione di pace", e uno che il due giugno scorso s'è fatto vedere tutto compunto mentre sfilavano cavvi avmati, missili, mezzi covazzati, bazzùca, ometti al passo dell'oca, cazzi di gomma, casseruole al plutonio, urànii impoveriti, isole dei famosi & altre belle cosine del geneve.

Who'll Stop The Rain?

... vorrei solo aggiungere che questa magnifica canzone dei CCR dà il titolo ad un altrettanto bellissimo film americano di uno dei padri del free cinema britannico, Karel Reisz (ebreo cecoslovacco riparato in Inghilterra dopo l'invasione nazista). Il film è tratto dal romanzo "Dog Soldiers" di Robert Stone. Da noi, come spesso avviene, uscì con un titolo del cavolo che ammiccava al pubblico dei film d'azione: "I guerrieri dell'inferno"...

"Who'll Stop the Rain (1977), allegorico, è un thriller ad inseguimento; è la storia di un pacco di eroina trasportato da un reduce del Vietnam a Los Angeles per conto di un giornalista, conteso ai due da poliziotti corrotti e da professionisti della droga; nello spettacolare scontro a fuoco finale, il soldato muore, permettendo all'amico e a sua moglie di mettersi in salvo; sarà sepolto nel deserto e per croce avrà il fucile. Il film dissacra e smitizza... (Continues)
