Fight The Power (Full Version) - Public EnemyFight the Power From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "Fight the Power" is a 1989 song by hip hop group Public Enemy. First released on the soundtrack for the film Do the Right Thing (Rosie Perez dances to the song over the opening credits), an edited version was released in 1990 on Public Enemy's third album, Fear of a Black Planet. The song has largely served as the political statement of purpose for the group, and is their biggest single. "Fight the Power" was recently ranked #1 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop, further demonstrating the impact of the song.[1] The single reached #1 on Hot Rap Singles and #20 on the Hot R&B Singles. Another version is featured in the Chuck D Presents: Louder than a Bomb compilation, featuring a saxophone solo by Branford Marsalis. Brian Hardgroove said, "Law enforcement is necessary. As a species we haven't evolved past needing that. Fight the Power is not about fighting authority—it's not that at all. It's about fighting abuse of power. Music videos Spike Lee produced and directed two music videos for this song. The first featured clips of various scenes from Do the Right Thing. In the second video, Lee used hundreds of extras to simulate a massive political rally in Brooklyn. The extras carry signs featuring Paul Robeson, Marcus Garvey, Chuck Berry and Martin Luther King, Jr. Tawana Brawley made a cameo appearance. Brawley gained national notoriety in 1987 when, at the age of 15, she accused several police officers and public officials from Wappingers Falls, New York of raping her. The charge was rejected in court, and she instead was sued for supposedly fabricating her story. Jermaine Dupri also made a cameo. Samples used The song's title and chorus were inspired by—or taken from—"Fight the Power (Part 1 & 2)," a 1975 protest funk song by The Isley Brothers. "Teddy's Jam" by Guy "Bird of Prey" by Uriah Heep "Hot Pants Road" by The J.B.'s (bassline) "Pump Me Up" by Trouble Funk (percussion, vocal: "Pu-pu-pump") "Different Strokes" by Syl Johnson (heard before the 3rd chorus) "I Shot the Sherriff" by Bob Marley "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa (Vocal: "Yeah!")

The opening quotation, "Yet our best trained, best educated, best equipped, best prepared troops refuse to fight! Matter of fact, it's safe to say that they would rather switch than fight!," was taken from Chicago attorney and civil rights activist, Thomas "TNT" Todd.

Mahler's 7th Symphony "Song of the Night" (Audio + Score)pf: New York Philharmonic cond/ Leonard Bernstein 0:00 - Langsam – Allegro risoluto, ma non troppo 21:39 - Nachtmusik I 38:46 - Scherzo 49:19 - Nachtmusik II 1:04:06 - Rondo-Finale Gustav Mahler's Seventh Symphony was written in 1904–05, with repeated revisions to the scoring. It is sometimes referred to by the title Song of the Night (German: Lied der Nacht), which Mahler never knew and certainly would never have sanctioned. Although the symphony is often described as being in the key of E minor, its tonal scheme is more complicated. The symphony's first movement moves from B minor (introduction) to E minor, and the work ends with a Rondo-Finale in C major. Thus, as Dika Newlin has pointed out, "in this symphony Mahler returns to the ideal of 'progressive tonality' which he had abandoned in the Sixth". The complexity of the work's tonal scheme was analysed in terms of "interlocking structures" by Graham George. The harmonic and stylistic structure of the piece may be viewed as a depiction of the journey from dusk till dawn.The piece evolves from uncertain and hesitant beginnings to an unequivocal C major finale, with its echoes of Wagner's Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg: indeed, at the premiere the overture to this opera was performed after the symphony. This journey from night to day proceeds via an extraordinary third movement scherzo, marked schattenhaft (shadowy), which may have been what prompted Arnold Schoenberg to become a particular champion of the work. The abundance of themes based upon the interval of a fourth has parallels with the First Chamber Symphony. The piece has several motifs in common with the Sixth Symphony, notably the juxtaposition of major with minor chords, the march figure of the first movement, and the use of cowbells within certain "pastoral" episodes. Mahler conducted the premiere of his Seventh Symphony in Prague in 1908. A few weeks later he conducted it in Munich and the Netherlands. Both the audience and the performers at the premiere were confused by the work, and it was not well received. It remained for a while as one of Mahler's least appreciated works, often accused of incoherence. More recently, scholars and conductors have experimented with a range of interpretations of the work, especially the tempo of the finale, and the work has thrilled more audiences worldwide and has since become more popular. PERSONAL NOTE: This one is a tough nut to crack, and took me a few listens before I began to appreciate it. To me, the symphony has a very raw sound, as if it was composed by Mother Nature herself. It's one of those works that you have to try to listen to "at face value", without any pre-conceptions. In any case, there are some stunning parts to in this work, and I definitely think it should be given a chance along with all of Mahler's other output.
