Haiku not for the faint-hearted/ A music review

Sense of hope collapse.
Flowers wilt, it offends me.
The whole world trembles.
Dark pencils giggle.
And then shudders but hell bursts.
My taste in music seems to be trapped in the late 60’s to the 80’s but ever since I’ve been to JC, I’m exploring the world of music and have found really moving songs.
ERYKAH BADU: The healer [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XykIswFgLpU ]
The song is about the death of Hip-hop. Somehow it’s built in with religion and politics. It’s an important issue for music lovers. The beats are great. I love the rhythm. This song is giving an awareness that they do exist and we need to grab hold of it before it disappears. Music is a whole different ‘religion’ that’s why the first verse is the names of all the Gods that different people believe in.
Humdi Lila Allah Jehova
Yahweh Dios Ma’ad Jah
It simply means that music is part of religion. It’s very controversial, but that’s the power of music right? Don’t tell me that the government can do it all. There are some passive methods to get the issues across. This song certainly does it’s job and there you go kiddies.
