Ich nehme einen Song, in dem es vordergründig um die Geschichte von bzw. den Prozess gegen Rubin Carter geht, aber vor allem auch rassistische Ungleichbehandlung in der amerikanischen Justiz allgemein thematisiert wird:

slowdive: Bob Dylan - Hurricane
This song is about Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, a boxer who spent 19 years in jail for a murder Dylan felt he did not commit.

Carter's case is complex and filled with legal missteps. On June 17, 1966, three white people were gunned down at a bar in Paterson, New Jersey called the Lafayette Grill. Witnesses described two black men as the murderers; police pulled over Carter and his friend John Artis, who were black, but otherwise didn't fit the description of the killers. They were released, and Carter resumed his boxing career, losing a fight on August 6, but two months later he and Artis were charged with the murders.

The case hinged on the testimony of Arthur Bradley and Alfred Bello, two white men with criminal records who claimed they were en route to rob a factory when they witnessed the shooting, and that Carter and Artis were the killers. Carter was sentenced to 30 years to life; Artis got 15 to life; Bradley and Bello got reduced sentences for their crimes.

In prison, Carter worked relentlessly to tell his story in an effort to earn his freedom. Many sympathized with his cause, including a writer who helped him publish his autobiography, The Sixteenth Round: From Number 1 Contender to Number 45472, which was published in 1974. Carter had a copy sent to Dylan, who read it and took up his cause, writing this song about him and raising money for him on his 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour.

Soon after Carter's book was published, Bradley and Bello changed their stories, claiming they were coerced into their testimony. In 1976, Carter and Artis' convictions were overturned, but months later were again convicted in a second trial. In 1985, the case reached the Supreme Court, and this time Carter and Artis were exonerated for good. Carter died on April 20, 2014 at age 76. His professional boxing record was 27-12-1.

Ghost - Dance Macabre
Europe was in this turmoil in the late 1340s. The plague is extremely fast. It starts off as the worst flu you've ever had and then it just goes worse and then you're dead after three days. So people were lying in the streets — corpses and all the surroundings were just falling apart. All the brothels and pubs were thriving because people started partying literally like there was no tomorrow because they were gonna die. They were just going for it. "Dance Macabre" is capturing that joyous nocturnal sort of life in a disco song.

Wer hat noch nicht, wer will nochmal? Aktuell würde ich die Auswahlfrist wohl noch um 1, 2 Tage verlängern, aufgrund der niedrigen Teilnehmerzahl.

This is just a test take it with love and you will pass
You will be rewarded if you do your very best

Untitled: Neil Young - Cortez the Killer
The song is about Hernán Cortés (Cortés' name has an alternate Anglicized spelling in the song title), a conquistador who conquered Mexico for Spain in the 16th century. "Cortez the Killer" also makes reference to the Aztec ruler Moctezuma II and other events that occurred in the Spanish conquest of the New World.

alt-J - Taro
Gerda Taro was a war photojournalist in the 1930 – 40s. She died in her line of work when a tank collided into the side of a car she was riding on.

The subject of this song is Gerda’s romantic interest and colleague, Robert Capa. During the First Indochina War, Capa left the relative safety of his Jeep and advanced on foot in a hostile war zone to take pictures. Minutes later, he stepped on a landmine, which blew apart his left leg. He died minutes later with his camera in his hand.

Nicht allzuviel zum Neuentdecken (nicht, dass sich das bisher großartig rentiert hätte für mich), aber was für großartige Songs dabei sind. Ich bin froh, dass es wohl direkt ins Finale geht. :herzen2:

The Rural Alberta Advatage - Tornado '87
(Tornado in Edmonton 1987)


Das offizielle Video zum Song ist übrigens sehr sehenswert, die bedrückende Atmosphäre wird ziemlich eindrucksvoll übertragen (für die Audioaufnahme eignet sich jedoch der obere Link besser):

Sublime - April 29, 1992
Let's begin by addressing a source of confusion: The Sublime song we're about to semi-fondly recall is entitled "April 29, 1992 (Miami)." But as sung, its lyrics refer to "April 26, 1992" -- 20 years ago today.

This is clearly a mistake, since the song is about the L.A. Riots: Specifically about Sublime members' alleged involvement in the looting, burning, and general hell-raising that took place in the streets after a jury decided that video showing four cops (three white, one Hispanic) senselessly beating a black man named Rodney King somehow did not mean that four cops senselessly beat a black man named Rodney King. The jury's verdict was delivered on April 29, 1992, and inspired riots that lasted for for six days.

Those riots were a definitive event of the urban crime-obsessed early-'90s, and forever changed the relationship between the local community and the much-criticized Los Angeles Police Department. The shadow of the King riots loomed large over the O.J. Simpson trial of a few years later, with many predicting a similar outburst if Simpson was found guilty. (Simpson was acquitted, and to this day nothing like the King riots has happened again in L.A.)
