While The Specials' track shares the same title as Prince Buster's song, it's not a cover with new lyrics.
Khan's popularity rose even further in certain circles when photographs of her from different angles revealed she was wearing a Specials t-shirt to the counter-demonstration --which led to her being invited by the band to pen the lyrics for and perform on this recording. This is not the first answer record to Buster's "Ten Commandments. Two: Alan Parker John Cameron Afro Rock shall not provoke me to anger or thou will have no peace at night Khan's commandments, listed below, powerfully and unequivocally refute all of the limitations and expectations that our patriarchal and chauvinist society would impose on her body and volition, solely on the basis of her gender.
Her assured declarations of independence and take no prisoners support for women's rights are thrilling to behold. Yet, it's incredibly depressing to realize how little has changed at a societal level--these same ugly and pernicious attitudes towards women were Soul Vendors Marcia Griffiths Fat Fish Call To Me when The Specials debuted four decades ago.

It's as if Khan's thoughts, will, and voice keep the demons at bay; but in their absence, a terrible darkness seeks to fill the void. The commandments of I, Saffiyah Khan This is a profound and affecting track that makes its points spectacularly well. Bravo to all involved. Newer Post Older Post Home.
