‘The Need Of The People‘ Michel Montecrossa’s New-Topical-Song-Movement Audio-CD and DVD released by Mira Sound Germany is his straight forward and touching reaction to the ongoing evolution of world affairs and the important role of communication, dialogue, freedom of speech and media freedom culture in the growing complexity of day to day changes. Governments and leaders need a constant and effective reminder that they are there to meet the need of the people.
Michel Montecrossa says about his song ‘The Need Of The People’:
“North Africa pro-reform uprising, Gaddafi-Dino-World, Ruby-escort life, Middle-East war & strife, European and American this and that are all shaken by the voice of the people that pushes for good governments, a better life and action that meets the need of the people.
Free speech, free action, free communication is the need of the young everywhere, a true media-freedom-culture showing the world as it is and where it can go. A media-freedom-culture of dialogue and not of monologues attempting to manipulate the mind of the people. No TV show, no magazine, no radio brings change as does the internet revolution do with instant program creations made by the people for the people.
Media czars, governments and presidents: Wake up! The freedom culture is on its way, is meeting the need of the people and can do it without you if you don’t want to join. But why not join for the good of all, why not communicate open and freely and be with the young?
Meet the need of the people: That’s what this song is all about.”
THE NEED OF THE PEOPLE
Come gather ‘round people, let’s sing our song, / honest to god in the lingo of all. / Let’s sing it loud so that the government knows / and the big boys and bosses of the big show: / “You have to meet the need of the people!”
Working People speak through their working / and fighting for a peace loving world, / a world that’s okay, that’s free and honest, / speaks out loud, lets you vote like you want: / A world that meets the need of the people.
The young will tell you what’s to be fixed / when disaster looms and truth is departing. / Things happen fast and sides are changing. / Freedom is hard work, needs shakin’ of hands: / Freedom is meeting the need of the people.
Starvation wages make people slaves / to hunger and anger and goin’ wrong. / Governments are meant to work for the people / and not to cheat and dehumanize: / They have to meet the need of the people.
Civil war is the end of the story / of failed education, corruption, suppression / and is spilling the blood / of the young and the hopeful: / of those who could have met the need of the people.
Come gather ‘round people, let’s sing our song, / honest to god in the lingo of all. / Let’s sing it loud and proud and strong / so that everyone everywhere knows: / Together we will meet the need of the people!
