In 1993, the film “Judgment Night” was released. SPOILER ALERT: it is a film about the fear of losing white privilege through the characters portrayed by Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr., Stephen Dorff, and Jeremy Piven.
Surprisingly, from the ashes of heightened mediocrity arose an amazing soundtrack, a collaboration of hip hop artists and their “rock” counterparts. Is there nothing a blend of black and white musicians in a corporate world can’t do?
The following is a mega-mash up atop Chic’s “Good Times”. It includes Rilo Kiley’s “Portions For Foxes”, David Bowie & Queen’s “Under Pressure”, Pixies’ “Here Comes Your Man”, Men At Work’s “Down Under”, Taylor Swift’s “Our Song”, Alec Baldwin from Glengarry Glen Ross, Hall & Oates’ “Maneater”, Blondie’s “Rapture”, and T. Rex’s “Bang A Gong (Get It On)”.
Here are two examples of bands with names that have nothing to do with its members. There is no one named Blondie in Blondie; and there is no one named Tom nor Club in Tom Tom Club. Brought to you in a time when truth, no matter how insignificant, is the greatest commodity.
