Music Makes Everything Better: Reason 01

Do the Right Thing

Before DJ extraordinaire Mister Senor Love Daddy screams WAKE UP to open Spike Lee’s commentary on race issues in America, we’re treated to one of the best examples of using the opening credits to set the scene. Rosie Perez dances to Public Enemy’s Fight the Power on a stage built to resemble a  Brooklyn street. Throughout the rest of the film the song creeps its way through the background of scenes, slowly building as the racial tensions come to a boiling point.

Everyday or so I’ll be giving real life examples of why music is so awesome, as if you ever doubted. Keep coming back and tell me what makes music so awesome for you. @JamesMeckerWHAT
