People Power

People Power is an indie rock song featured in PES 2009 and is performed by real Mancunian band The Anderson Shelter. In the song it mentions many famous celebrities who died early such as John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Princess Diana, Bruce Lee, Marilyn Monroe, John Lennon and even Jesus throughout the song.

It is thought to be a parody of John Lennon's "Power to the People" not only because of the title but also because it is sung in a similar style. It can be found under the section 'Library' in Gallery → Playlist Editor.

[edit] Lyrics

Well there was Kennedy
And there was King
There was John
There was Jim
They did come, to teach and sing
To save our souls, forgive our sins

Just like Jimmy
Paired up with Jones
So alive in my headphones
They did bring, some kind of peace
And in a sense of pure release

There were others with different ideas
Ruled the world with paranoia and fear
By the slaughter of a sacred cow
To try and herd the supply, cattle, somehow
Give the power to the people now
Time for us to kill off the soul cash cow

Give the power to the people now
Time for us to kill off the soul cash cow

Power, people, now
Power, people, now
Power, people, now
Power, people

Well in came Bob, with a different way
Of what the others tried to say
And Mr. Marx and Che
Wanted every man,to just get paid

Like Jesus Christ
Whatever he's called
To live on, he had to fall
Well all he brung
Was a brand new peace
And in a sense of pure release

But there were others with different ideas
Ruled the world with paranoia and fear
By the slaughter of a sacred cow
To try and herd the supply, cattle, somehow

Give the power to the people now
Time for us to kill off the soul cash cow
Give the power to the people now
Time for us to kill off the soul cash cow

Power, people, now
Power, people, now
Power, people, now
Power, people

Well in kicked Lee
With a fist of fury
Like Ghandi's
Silent purity
Took out Andy, for his tins of beans
A martial art, won it seems

It's not omit
The suffragettes
Like Joan of Arc
And a Welsh princess
Mama Cass, Marilyn Monroe
I had suspicions
Now I know

But there were others with different ideas
Ruled the world with paranoia and fear
By the slaughter of a sacred cow
To try and herd the supply, cattle, somehow

Give the power to the people now
Time for us to kill off the soul cash cow
Give the power to the people now
Time for us to kill off the soul cash cow

Give the power to the people now
Give the power to the people now
Give the power
Give the power
Give the power to the people now!
