HIVE OPEN MIC WEEK #135/ REDEMPTION SONG BY BOB MARLEY AND THE WAILERS/. ENG-ESP

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


Hello Hive Open mic community, I trust you all are doing good... it's week 135 and the theme for this week "Fight Oppression" as chosen by recent spotlight artiste @indonesiabersatu is a really valid topic to explore, as oppression is really rampant in our world today.

I'd be performing a song by Jamaican singer, musician and songwriter "Bob Marley" called Redemption song.

Oppression was and still is a major problem around the world. People are being oppressed due to their skin colour, ethnicity, race and sexual orientation. Both the oppressor and the oppressed are humans and should first consider humanity before their belief.
No one deserves to die or suffer for having a particular skin colour or being from a different race. We are all one in the sight of God. The song talks about slavery and the impacts it has on the mind of the enslaved. Bob Marley was a descendant of slaves and had seen how they were treated so inhumanly and unjust.

"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds"

Marley encourages us to free our minds from the effects of slavery because he was well aware of the mental slavery that could still exist even when you are free. Oppression is not far-fetched, it's really a vice that needs to be stopped. People oppress just because they have the power to and believe it's the right thing to do. Most oppressors today just follow the trend, what they've been used to, what they see thereby it becomes a norm today.

Oppression could be withholding a necessity from someone just because you want them to suffer and work for you(selfish reasons). For instance oppressing someone with food, the oppressor knows food is a necessity to live but yet make it hard for Someone to get it....making them work so hard just to get food in minute quantities. As petty as this may sound, this is oppression at its peak and no one deserves to suffer just because of your personal beliefs/faith. I do hope you all enjoy 🎧 my cover of this classic and on a final note, Don't forget to be the change you seek in the world today😉.

LYRICS

Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
'Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look? Ooh!
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
Redemption songs
Redemption songs

[Guitar break]

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our mind
Wo! Have no fear for atomic energy
'Cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Yes, some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever had
Redemption songs
All I ever had
Redemption songs
These songs of freedom
Songs of freedom

Hola, comunidad de micrófono abierto de Hive, confío en que todos lo estén haciendo bien... es la semana 135 y el tema de esta semana "Lucha contra la opresión", elegido por el artista destacado reciente @indonesiabersatu, es un tema realmente válido para explorar, ya que la opresión es realmente rampante. en nuestro mundo de hoy.

Estaría interpretando una canción del cantante, músico y compositor jamaiquino "Bob Marley" llamada Canción de redención.

La opresión fue y sigue siendo un problema importante en todo el mundo. Las personas están siendo oprimidas debido a su color de piel, etnia, raza y orientación sexual. Tanto el opresor como el oprimido son humanos y primero deben considerar la humanidad antes que sus creencias.
Nadie merece morir o sufrir por tener un color de piel en particular o ser de una raza diferente. Todos somos uno a los ojos de Dios. La canción habla sobre la esclavitud y los impactos que tiene en la mente de los esclavizados. Bob Marley era descendiente de esclavos y había visto cómo los trataban de manera tan inhumana e injusta.

"Emanciparse de la esclavitud mental
Nadie más que nosotros puede liberar nuestras mentes"

Marley nos anima a liberar nuestras mentes de los efectos de la esclavitud porque él era muy consciente de la esclavitud mental que aún podría existir incluso cuando eres libre. La opresión no es descabellada, es realmente un vicio que necesita ser detenido. Las personas oprimen solo porque tienen el poder y creen que es lo correcto. La mayoría de los opresores de hoy simplemente siguen la tendencia, a lo que han estado acostumbrados, lo que ven se convierte en una norma hoy.

La opresión podría ser negarle una necesidad a alguien solo porque quieres que sufra y trabaje para ti (razones egoístas). Por ejemplo, al oprimir a alguien con la comida, el opresor sabe que la comida es una necesidad para vivir, pero aún así dificulta que alguien la obtenga... haciéndolos trabajar tan duro solo para obtener comida en cantidades mínimas. Por insignificante que parezca, esto es opresión en su apogeo y nadie merece sufrir solo por sus creencias/fe personales. Espero que todos disfruten 🎧 mi versión de este clásico y, en una nota final, no olviden ser el cambio que buscan en el mundo de hoy 😉.

LETRA

Viejos piratas, sí, me roban
Vendí yo a los barcos mercantes
Minutos después de que me llevaran
Desde el pozo sin fondo
Pero mi mano se hizo fuerte
De la mano del Todopoderoso
Avanzamos en esta generación
Triunfantemente

¿No ayudarás a cantar?
¿Estas canciones de libertad?
Porque todo lo que tengo
Canciones de redención
Canciones de redención

Emanciparse de la esclavitud mental
Nadie más que nosotros puede liberar nuestras mentes
No temas a la energía atómica
Porque ninguno de ellos puede detener el tiempo
¿Hasta cuándo matarán a nuestros profetas?
Mientras nos hacemos a un lado y miramos? ¡Oh!
Algunos dicen que es sólo una parte de ella
Tenemos que cumplir con el libro.

¿No ayudarás a cantar?
¿Estas canciones de libertad?
Porque todo lo que tengo
Canciones de redención
Canciones de redención
Canciones de redención

[pausa de guitarra]

Emanciparse de la esclavitud mental
Nadie más que nosotros mismos puede liberar nuestra mente
¡Ay! No temas a la energía atómica
Porque ninguno de ellos-una lata-una parada-un tiempo
¿Hasta cuándo matarán a nuestros profetas?
Mientras nos hacemos a un lado y miramos?
Sí, algunos dicen que es solo una parte de eso.
Tenemos que cumplir con el libro.

¿No ayudarás a cantar?
¿Estas canciones de libertad?
Porque todo lo que he tenido
Canciones de redención
Todo lo que he tenido
Canciones de redención
Estas canciones de libertad
Canciones de libertad

Bob's songs are one of the best options when we think about speaking out against oppression and inequality, and this is a great song and you know what friend? I like more how this song sounds in your voice, of course Bob was an excellent singer, but you give a great special touch with your voice to this melody. Success and blessings.
