Unite My Country
I am writing this article because I feel that the music industry has always been a major influence on the moral values of each generation.So I am challenging song writers of today to write songs that tell about great moral values. In these times we need you to help lift us up.Please read and think about what I am asking.
Ok here is examples of what I am talking about. In the 60’s and 70’s we had a lot of songs written anti-war, peace,love and understanding. So Bruce Springsteen covered this with his song ‘Whats so funny bout peace love and understanding”. A very famous song that can be heard today on radio. I do believe we need to go backwards to move forward. So please no more gang banging I will shoot you songs showing bad moral values.
What I am asking is for song writers and musicians to write one song this year about Anti-hate,Anti-discrimination,and Anti-violence. You have the ability to influence others in your songs just like they did in the 60’s and 70’s. Yes move backwards to unite our country the world and move us forward. I do not think I am giving music to mech credit with this task. You have our ears and attention. Please just try to do as I ask. I truly believe in the power of music and how it effects our daily lives.
Yes music has been over many years political. Look at Bob Marley was one of those singer song writers that tried to unify and bring change to his country. So he asked his people to get up stand up for your rights. You can’t get more political than that. So I guess I am asking the music industry to get up stand up and unify the moral values in my country and the world.
