Culture Notes: Love for Speed


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Sunday, August 19, 2007 1:24 PM (Eastern)


Kiosk: Love for Speed (Eshgh e Sorat) with Subtitles

This is not at all a "typical" Iranian pop song, either in terms of music or of lyrics. I debated a bit about putting it up. Okay, I can admit it, I was looking for a Sattar video and couldn't find it. There were a few Sattar songs in a period of my life, and these were beautiful songs. But all I could find on youtube were new Sattar, and old Sattar, nothing in between.

In any case, this is Iran. When I see this video, I feel a bit sad. It's like that part of Hamoon (which I highly recommend, it's a bit of a comedy) where the main character flips through a book of maps of Iran. Because he's flipping the pages, you can see graphically how it got smaller and smaller over time. At the end he says, "How did it get so small?"

I feel we're a bit like that ourselves; we used to be a great country. Whether we can remain a great country is in our own hands. Whether we're building something today, for the sake of tomorrow; that's up to us.
