Water Under the Door

[1995]
Lyrics & Music by Tom Neilson
Album: Swords Into Plowshares

Social/political commentary on corporate terror. The "Swords Into Plowshares" album(1) is about the Colrain action which attempted to prevent the takeover of Randy and Betsy Kehler's home for tax refusal by the IRS.

Five communities in Western Massachusetts were destroyed and flooded to create the Quabbin Reservoir, so people could have water in Boston. The area was the site of the historical Shay's Rebellion.

"Water Under the Door" is an urgent call to action to confront the corporate terror that leads to the violence of poverty, hunger, homelessness, torture and murder.
What do you do when you have no home to go home to?

It ain't me, it ain't me, I ain't no millionaire's son, no.

Hiroshima (Pax Americana Mix)

[2005]
Composed, performed, produced by Sleiboi 'G'

Auferre trucidare rapere falsis nominibus imperium, atque ubi solitudinem faciunt, pacem appellant. -Tac. Agricola 30 (De vita et moribus Iulii Agricolae)-

To ravage, to slaughter, to usurp under false titles, they call empire; and where they make a desert, they call it peace. (Tacitus - Oxford Revised Translation) .

On 6th August 1945, at 1,900 feet above the centre of the Japanese city of Hiroshima, America detonated the first of only two Weapons of Mass Destruction to have ever been used aggressively against another nation. Creating a fireball of a temperature in excess of that of the surface of the Sun, the city and its ordinary civilian residents were vapourised instantly. Around 160,000 people died in the blast with some 77,000 dying later of the radiation exposure.

Legal Limbo

[2009]
Music by Atomgrad

Detainees still remain in Guantanamo Bay, they are held without charge or trial, in complete disregard of the Geneva Conventions.

The Bush Administration believes it can get away with this abuse by declaring them Non Combatants, but they are the ones who declared a War on Terror, and you can't have a war without enemy combatants. Anyone detained on suspicion of terrorism is therefore an enemy combatant and should be treated according to the Geneva Conventions.
Detainees still remain inside the United States military facility at Guantanamo Bay,

Everyday People

(1968)

The song is one of Sly Stone's pleas for peace and equality between differing races and social groups, a major theme and focus for the band. The Family Stone featured Caucasians Greg Errico and Jerry Martini in its lineup, as well as females Rose Stone and Cynthia Robinson; making it the first major integrated band in rock history. Sly & the Family Stone's message was about peace and equality through music, and this song reflects the same.

Preghiera dei partigiani

anonimo
Ieri sera, in automobile, ho preso per la coda questa canzone-giaculatoria (che non conoscevo), eseguita durante la gloriosa trasmissione "La sacca del diavolo" di Radiopopolare.
La trascrivo come la ricordo, per la delizia di Lorenzo che dovrà domandarsi: ci sta o non ci sta una canzone così nel nostro sito?
Non so dire di più, perché mi sono perso le spiegazioni preliminari, e non so se mi sarà possibile ascoltare la replica. I "parabei" sono le mitragliette parabellum, protagoniste della guerra di liberazione. Non penso occorra altra traduzione.
Ma se qualcuno vuole sostituire, correggere, integrare, spiegare, lo faccia senza esitare. (gpt)

Partigiano Hans

Chanson italienne - Partigiano Hans - Popinga

Hans Amoser était un soldat parachutiste autrichien, enrôlé dans l'armée nazie qui à un certain moment déserte, mais ne fuit pas. En effet, il passe de l'autre côté, du côté de ceux qui combattent le nazisme. Il se range aux côtés des partisans et des alliés anglo-américains pour ne pas laisser tomber le monde, son idée de monde, dans de mauvaises mains. Hans trahit son pays, il l'aide à se libérer de ce qu'il pense être le mal. Pour cela, nous avons choisi son point de vue pour notre chanson : celui qui lutte pour la liberté doit dépasser l'idée de patrie comme nation et se mettre au service de tous pour que le monde soit plus juste et civilisé, car c'est seulement dans ce contexte qu'on peut être vraiment libres.

Venable

[2010]
Lyrics by Larry Ludwick
Music by Jon Bushaway

"This is all true. Nobody is protected, not even myself. A part of 'the dead company' project.."

"This is my response to wonderful review by Andreas of The Frankfurt Dialog Company which pretty much summarizes the story behind the song:

Thanks Andreas... I hope you don't mind, but I would always submit something like this to you because I know you will listen to and understand the lyric. Yes it is hard and especially because it is a perfectly true story. Every detail is as it happened to me and Venable.

The only thing that maybe you misinterpreted is the part about what happened to me when Venable went off to the war... because actually I enlisted... I enlisted for my own reasons and not because I had any thought of the war, it was just that my own life was in a shambles. But I did not want this song to be as much about me but more... (continua)

Ho visto un re

Mi spiace contraddire l'amico Claudio Cormio, ma la canzone c'era anche nella prima versione di Ci ragiono e canto. Allora era cantata da Ivan Della Mea e da uno del gruppo dei Piadena, credo Amedeo Merli. A questo proposito ne ho parlato un Bruno Fontanella, uno dei protagonisti dello spettacolo, proprio all'ultima festa a casa del Miciu a Pontirolo perché ricordavo la canzone, ma non esattamente da chi era cantata. Per controllare basterebbe ascoltare i nastri dello spettacolo depositati all'Istituto Ernesto De Martino di Sesto Fiorentino.

The Eton Rifles

Album: "Setting Sons" (1979)

"The Eton Rifles" as such, do not exist: the cadet corps of Eton College is the Eton College Officer Training Corps[2], Eton being a famous English public school in Berkshire that is regarded as the epitome of Britain's privileged 'elite'. The song itself recounts the difficulties faced by the unemployed and lower paid working class in protesting against a system loaded against them.

The song recounts a street battle Paul Weller had read about in the newspapers concerning elements of a Right To Work march going through Slough in 1978 breaking off to attack pupils from Eton College who had been jeering the lunchtime marchers (hence Hello, Hooray, an extremist scrape with the Eton Rifles), rashly thinking that a bunch of 'posh schoolboys' would be an easy target: only for the outnumbered but far fitter college pupils to give them a beating. As the lyric put it:... (continua)
