So in the last few days I have decided I’m going to New York City in October. Trying to pick a song that helps me celebrate this is challenging but I have discovered a new song, but a fitting song, by the Beastie Boys about acceptance………………. “Home to many rejecting know one Accepting peoples of all places, wherever they’re from Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens and Staten From the Battery to the top of Manhattan Asian, Middle-Eastern and Latin Black, White, New York you make it happen” RIP MCA
Fuck you I won’t do what you tell me!!!!!!
This song is one of my all time favourites. I have seen RATM at a big day out in 1996 with my sister. Then in 2008, while I was in Nepal, I listened to them via my mobile phone, where my sister was watching them at a big day out. I love how listening to a song can bring back such random memories.
Its amazing how controversial this song was when it was released in 1989….protests, boycotts, etc. Its also amazing that I had no idea as a 13/14 year old girl what this song was really about…..oh how innocent I was.
