Somewhere I Read

(2018)
dal visual album Lungoviaggio di Pastis (i fratelli Marco Lanza e Saverio Lanza, voce dei RockGalileo) e Irene Grandi

Campionamento dell'ultimo discorso di MLK, inframezzato da Amazing Grace


Martin Luther King nel suo ultimo discorso pubblico prima del suo assassinio parla alla sua gente con una forza trascinante e alimenta il sogno di libertà a cui ogni uomo aspira, con parole coraggiose e il timbro sicuro di un eroe contemporaneo.
But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly.

Élégie pour Martin Luther King

1969
Élégies Majeures

Léopold Sédar Senghor è stato il primo presidente del Senegal, poeta e teorico della "Negritude".
Questa elegia per Martin Luther King scritta dopo la sua morte è accompagnata dalla nota "per un'orchestra jazz", non so se effettivamente sia mai stata messa in musica.

Dreamer

2009
LOtUSFLOW3R

Questa canzone è nota per essere la canzone sulle scie chimiche, e addirittura alcune tesi complottiste vorrebbero che Prince sia stato ucciso per questo. Non ci credo e trovo che il complottismo, ovvero credere che esistano dei poteri occulti che tutto governano, sia funzionale ai poteri quelli reali, perchè qualsiasi tentativo di cambiamento non va a scalfire i poteri nascosti.
Fatta questa premessa, trovo ben più interessante la parte della canzone che parla dei diritti civili degli afroamericani e delle violenze che ancora oggi subiscono solo per essere neri. Testo che Prince dichiarò essergli stato ispirato da Dick Gregory, comico e attivista per i diritti civili, morto qualche giorno fa a 84 anni

Johnny Appleseed

Album: "Global a Go-Go" (2001)

Sono dieci anni Joe Strummer che ci ha lasciato. Lo vogliamo ricordare oggi con questa bella canzone dall'album che lo riportò, con il suo nuovo gruppo - i Mescaleros - a calcare i palchi di tutto il mondo con nuove canzoni degne dei migliori Clash.

E' una canzone sulla libertà, un tributo alla gente comune, alla classe operaia. Johnny Appleseed (Giovanni Semedimela) fu un pionere e religioso protoambientalista statunitense, famoso per aver piantato migliaia di meli, visto come simbolo dell'altruismo.

"Se hai bisogno del miele, ehi, allora non ammazzi tutte le api". Le api sono il simbolo della classe operaia, quella che produce la ricchezza e che troppo spesso non solo non ne può godere i frutti, ma viene sistematicamente repressa e ammazzata.

Una grande canzone. Ciao Joe.
Lord, there goes Johnny Appleseed

Ayer tuve un sueño

Nel 1963, dopo un'esperienza lavorativa in Liberia, Manuel (Manolo) viaggiò negli Stati Uniti per partecipare alla marcia per i diritti civili convocata da Martin Luther King, che si concluse con lo storico discorso "I Have a Dream..." pronunciato da MLK dala scalinata del monumento a Lincoln.

Non appena tornato a Madrid, profondamente colpito da quel discorso, compose una delle sue prime canzoni, Ayer tuve un sueño che più tardi fu inclusa nel suo primo LP ma che originariamente fu interpretata con grande successo dal gruppo pop rock Los Pasos.

Quarant'anni dopo, la canzone può apparire ingenua e fin troppo semplice. però se la situiamo nella Spagna della metà degli anni '60, un momento in cui la semplice rivendicazione della libertà era considerata un comportamento pericolosamente rivoluzionario, possiamo capirne la forza; la semplicità fu la chiave del suo successo.

Album: Imagine That! Songs For Creative Teachers.

"I loved these words and wanted to sing them. I discovered a way to pair them with a well-known "campfire" song. I then added the third verse, in addition to the first and last verses. I am very happy with the song and enjoy teaching it to others. It's easy to learn and very meaningful.."

King

It just so happens that this long-running reggae group is from Birmingham – not Alabama, where King was infamously imprisoned, but Birmingham, England. The multiracial act's first single was a lament for Dr. King; the flip side, 'Food for Thought,' was about famine in Africa.
King, where are your people now ?

Like a King / I'll Rise

This track off Ben Harper's 1994 debut "Welcome to the Cruel World" is a rootsy folk tune, the allure of which lies in its stalwart political stance. "Like a King" draws parallels between MLK and Rodney King, a victim in the early-'90s L.A.P.D. police brutality cases. Harper's stance on the matter is easily discernible -- "Martin's dream," he avers, "has become Rodney's worst nightmare."

Happy Birthday

"Happy Birthday" is a 1980 single written, produced, and performed by Stevie Wonder for the Motown label. Wonder, a social activist, was one of the main figures in the campaign to have the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. become a national holiday, and created this single to make the cause known.
The song, one of many of Wonder's songs to feature the use of a keyboard synthesizer, features Wonder lamenting the fact that anyone would oppose the idea of a Dr. King holiday, where "peace is celebrated throughout the world". The holiday, he proposes, would facilitate the realization of Dr. King's dreams of integration and "love and unity for all of God's children".
Wonder used the song to popularize the campaign, and continued his fight for the holiday, holding the Rally for Peace Press Conference in 1981. United States President Ronald Reagan approved the creation of the holiday, signing... (Continues)

Spiritual per Martin Luther King

Canzone inedita, scritta da Rino Gaetano all'età di 17 anni. Essendo nato nel 1951, siamo quindi nel 1968. La canzone su Martin Luther King è stata scritta nell'anno stesso della sua uccisione.

Un inserimento sui generis, affidato esclusivamente alle immagini (ma con trascrizione del testo della canzone). Le immagini sono scannerizzate da Massimo Cotto, "Ma il cielo è sempre più blu - Pensieri, racconti e canzoni inedite". Grazie a Adriana per averlo fatto. [RV]
