I listen to songs primarily for the music and if the song also has good lyrics it makes the song that much better. It’s been quite some time since I’ve heard a song that was extremely powerful in the lyrics and also sounded great musically. The most profound song for me personally is still John Lennon’s “Imagine”.
A song by the Black Eyed Peas entitled “Where is the Love” recently grabbed my attention. The song is great and the lyrics are about as powerful as they come. This is truly a great song.
Here’s an excerpt of the song’s lyrics:
What’s wrong with the world mama?
People living like aint got no mamas
I think the whole worlds addicted to the drama
Only attracted to the things that bring you trauma
Overseas yeah we tryin to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin
In the USA the big CIA the Bloodz and the Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And if you hatin you’re bound to get irate
Yeah madness is what you demonstrate
And that’s exactly how anger works and operates
You gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love y’all
