The Sounds of Summer- Day 81 of 95- “Fight The Power”- Public Enemy. How is this a summer song? Well whenever I hear the song I think of my favorite Spike Lee movie- “Do The Right Thing”- and the movie takes place during one of the hottest days of the summer in New York City. The song in the film that always comes to mind is Public Enemy’s great “Fight The Power.” The song was first issued as part of the Do The Right Thing soundtrack. A different version would be released the next year- 1990 on Public Enemy’s “Fear Of A Black Planet” album. “Fight The Power” was named by the Village Voice as the best single of 1989- I would have to look over the singles from that year but if its not my favorite it has to be close to the top.
