When I got the news that he died, this song was the first to come to mind. why? Not only because it was played nearly ever day every hour during the Gulf War or that it was the Army’s Recruitment advertisement Video tune. but on the Day I came back to New Orleans in 2006, It was one of the first song I’d always hear on Morning Radio.
The IMO Song represents a generation of people who wanted change and had the power to do it. and they Sang about Life, what’s real, and what needs to be done. and its wild because we're in a world where everything is broken and needs to be fixed...
