Can't Truss It
by Public Enemy
(77 plays) | (0 fans)

In a 1991 interview with Melody Maker, Chuck D of Public Enemy explained: "'Can't Truss It' is about how the corporate world of today is just a different kind of slavery. We don't control what we create. And because of the media, we don't control the way we think or run our lives. We've got to limit working for a situation that's other than ours. We have no ownership of anything. If you don't own business, then you don't have jobs. White people have jobs because they have business. They have institutions that teach them how to live in America. Black people don't have institutions that teach them how to deal with shit. The Number One institution that teaches you how to deal is the family, but slavery fucked that up. So the song is about the ongoing cost of the holocaust. There was a Jewish holocaust, but there's a black holocaust that people still choose to ignore."

Let's Dance
by David Bowie
(25 plays) | (0 fans)

Nile Rodgers recalled to The Guardian: "When Bowie and I got together to do Let's Dance, we spent two weeks researching music and styles and Bowie suddenly said: 'I got it!' He held up a Little Richard album cover where he's wearing a red suit, getting into a red Cadillac, with a pompadour haircut, and said: 'That's rock'n'roll.'

"Cafe Joli" captures the intimacy of a campfire singalong and translates it into something much bigger and has been a favorite on The Morning Show for nearly 21 years! Back in 2012 it was the featured song of the day: https://bit.ly/2HwpwYX
