40 Year Itch : Time Is Truly Wastin'

Isley Brothers : Fight the Power (Pts 1 and 2)

    The Isley Brothers get political, and funky, on the opening cut to The Heat Is On, released in June of 1975. Guitarist Ernie Isley's "Fight the Power", with its line about "all this bullshit going down", would top the R and B charts and peak at #4 on the Billboard 100. One of the classic message songs that could fill the dance floor.
