5th period Protest Songs European Protest Song:
"The Ballad of Ho Chi Minh" Ho Chi Minh at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu Analysis of Lyrics Analysis of Lyrics Type of Protest Song - It was written by Ewan MacColl and was composed around 1954.
- This song is about the founder of Vietnamese communism who was Ho Chi Minh. "Now Ho Chi Minh went to the mountains
And he trained a determined band
Heroes all, sworn to liberate the Indo-Chinese people
Drive invaders from the land." This song is rhetoric because in involves a problem in politics/society with the French controlling Vietnam, it provides the solution to the problem with the Viet Minh, and it talks about the movements of Ho Chi Minh. http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/historic_figures/ho_chi_minh.shtml






http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-17783987 - Mac Coll was inspired to write this song after reading about the loss of the French at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu to the Vietnamese and their victorious leader who was Ho Chi Minh. After the Japanese invasion of Indo-China in 1941, Minh returned to Vietnam and established his headquarters in a cave in the mountains. There he established the Viet Minh, whose goal was to rid Vietnam of the "invaders" who were the French and Japanese occupiers.
"Forged and tempered the army of the Indo-Chinese people
Freedom's Army of Viet Minh" The Viet Minh were a communist-dominated independence movement.At the end of World War Two the Viet Minh announced Vietnamese independence. Contemporary Song:
"Concrete Angel" by Martina Mcbride Why She Wrote this Song This song is about the story of Angela Carter who is Mcbride's niece. Angela's parents split up and so she went through child abuse from her mom. One night Angela's mother beat her to death and so Mcbride wrote this song in honor of Angela's memory. Concrete Angel Child Abuse Statistics
-52% of abused children are girls
-Abuse and Neglect of American Children Has Increased 134% Since 1980 Analysis of Lyrics "Wearin the same dress she wore yesterday,
She hides the bruises with a linen and lace" This part talks about how she was neglected with some of her basic needs (clothes) and how she was physically abused. "Somebody cries in the middle of the night,
The neighbors hear but they turn out the lights,
A fragile soul caught in the hands of fate,
When mornin' comes it'll be too late," This part again talks about Angela being abused, and it also mentions how the neighbors could have done something but they pretended nothing was wrong. Rhetoric This song is rhetoric because it points out a problem in society, and it tries to get sympathy and support.
