Fishbone: “Change” (Chris Dowd Tribute & A Political Endorsement)

I finally got around to doing a video montage.  It didn’t hurt at all, apparently.  It’s rough around the edges but I basically made a music video montage of Fishbone’s “Change.”  It is the last track from the “Truth And Soul” album and it’s my favorite song from it.  Definitely please check it out.  You just might find it to be an undiscovered gem.  Check out the lyrics and you’ll find it to be as timely as ever…


All images are from “The Reality Of My Surroundings –
Past To Present” (VHS and DVD)

Change

There’s a light on a hill
That’s far out in the distance
And it calls out my name
It calls out for a change

Far away voices
That want their own choices
Sigh for a plea
As it calls out for a change

Ooh hoo change
Ooh ooh change
Ooh hoo…

To the root of Mankind
It bellows out bitter winds
Youth cry out for today
Strength to cry for a change

Yet it seems clear to me
It pounds inside my soul
Why don’t we all see
We can cry out for a change

Ooh hoo change
Ooh ooh change
Ooh hoo…

We can change today (x3)

Deep inside our hearts
There’s a love
You can feel it
It’s a love that assures
We can cry out for a change

The dark clouds that did dance
To the blue skies here before me
Make it plain to my eyes
We can cry out for a change

Ooh hoo change
Ooh ooh change
Ooh hoo…

My objective for making that “Change” music video is two-fold:

Reason Number 1: This is a Chris Dowd montage tribute.

Reason Number 2: (My plea to Chris Dowd and Fishbone from this post.)
