A summary of Mandela’s life story is featured in the 2006 music video “If Everyone Cared” by NICKELBACK

Lyrics:
From underneath the trees, we watch the sky
Confusing stars for satellites
I never dreamed that you’d be mine
But here we are, we’re here tonight

Singing, “Amen I, I’m alive” (I’m alive)
Singing, “Amen I, I’m alive”

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we’d see the day when nobody died

And I’m singing
Amen I, Amen I, I’m alive
Amen I, Amen I, Amen I (I’m alive)

And in the air the fireflies
Our only light in paradise
We’ll show the world they were wrong
And teach them all to sing along

Singing, “Amen I, I’m alive” (I’m alive)
Singing, “Amen I, I’m alive”

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we’d see the day when nobody died

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we’d see the day when nobody died
When nobody died

And as we lie beneath the stars
We realize how small we are
If they could love like you and me
Imagine what the world could be

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we’d see the day when nobody died

If everyone cared and nobody cried
If everyone loved and nobody lied
If everyone shared and swallowed their pride
Then we’d see the day when nobody died

We’d see the day, we’d see the day (When nobody died)
We’d see the day, we’d see the day (When nobody died)
We’d see the day (When nobody died)


1990年, 香港搖滾樂隊 BEYOND 發表了廣東單曲<光輝歲月>, 向曼德拉先生致敬。 主音歌手家駒的歌詞是寫對南非黑人領袖曼德拉的歌頌,反映出 Beyond 對世界及民族的關心。

駒:我覺得生存在這個世界上的人呢,除了膚色不同之外就個個都是平等的。 
榮:所以人類不應該有種族歧視這種事的。

In 1990, Hong Kong rock band BEYOND released a popular Cantonese song, “Days of Glory”. The anti-apartheid song featured lyrics referring to Mandela’s heroic struggle for racial equality.

” Maybe we are  in different colors, we shall all be equal. Racial discrimination should never been happened in our world.” Beyond.

詞/曲:黃家駒
  鐘聲響起歸家的訊號 在他生命裡 彷彿帶點唏噓
  黑色肌膚給他的意義 是一生奉獻 膚色鬥爭中

  年月把擁有變作失去 疲倦的雙眼帶著期望

  今天只有殘留的軀殼 迎接光輝歲月 風雨中抱緊自由
  一生經過徬徨的掙扎 自信可改變未來 問誰又能做到

  可否不分膚色的界限 願這土地裡 不分你我高低 
  繽紛色彩散出的美麗 是因它沒有 分開每種色彩

Free Nelson Mandela
by Amy Winehouse

最先於1983年由The Specials 樂隊為曼德拉先生灌錄的 「Free Nelson Mandela 」,  期後由Amy Winehouse 於2009年 Mandela Day Concert 中演唱。

One of the most popular was from THE SPECIALS who recorded the song “Free Nelson Mandela” first in 1983.  The song was once again performed by Amy Winehouse on Mandela Day Concert in 2009.

Lyrics:
Free Nelson Mandela
Free free
Free free free Nelson Mandela
Free Nelson Mandela

21 years count to the tee
Shoes too small to fit his feet
His body is used but his mind is still free
You’re so blind that you cannot see
Free Nelson Mandela

Visited the causes at the AMC
Only one man in a large army
You’re so blind that you cannot see
You’re so deaf that you cannot hear him
Free Nelson Mandela

21 tears count to the tee
You’re so blind that you cannot see
You’re so deaf that you cannot hear him
You’re so dumb that you cannot speak
Free Nelson Mandela
