昨天有看聯合報
那篇賴世雄老師
對於hip hop或reggae的歌詞
不覺得特別好的評論
我知道問題不只他說的點


如果你們有注意過
hip hop歌曲的發展史
歌詞內容
也是在後來才開始低俗化
專注於一夜性等部份

問題是
雖說現況也是這樣
有些團體們
也能寫出用字不低俗
融合hip hop 精神
讓人印象深刻的歌詞

從這種觀點來看
black eyed peas的歌曲
Where is the love?
雖然是他們上一張專輯的歌
但我覺得可以拿來學唱!

從歌詞中我們可以看到
美國也是有人不贊成
那些所謂的社會現象
一直一直低俗化
不擔心落後國家的權益
只會搞戰爭

現在地球都不知何時會亡
管這些真是淺薄!!

附帶一提
這首歌也有提到
宗教對人的正面影響
還有一些西方背景知識
(以下有相關字的歌詞
我會標粗體字
但是不會重複標注)

總之,如果你沒聽過
這首正經的hip hop 歌曲
這真的就很可惜了!

Where is the love lyrics
written by BEP and some other lyrics
(I guess that the lyrics
was written before Fergie joined the produce)


What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma

Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods 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 when you hate then you're bound to get i-rate, yeah

Badness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man ya gotta have love, this'll set us straight
take control of your mind and meditate
let your soul gravitate, to the love ya'll


People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father
, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love


It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With the ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young


So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin' in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover


The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
where's the love ya'll? com'on (i don't know)
where's the truth ya'll? com'on (i don't know)
and where's the love ya'll?


People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us 
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me, questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love


I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm getting older, ya'll people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin
Selfishness got us followin the wrong direction

Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema

Yo~Whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness and equality
Instead of spreading love we spreadin animosity
Lack of understandin leading us away from unity

That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin down
It's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found
And ask yourself
[↑大多數歌詞都漏掉這句]

Where is the love
Where is the love
Where is the love 
Where is the love

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love 

(sing with me uh)One word ,one word
(We only got)One word, one word
(That's all we got)One word, one word

Something's wrong with the game
Something's wrong with the game
Something's wrong with the world, world, yeah

(We only got)One word ,one word
(That's all we got)One word, one word
