Politically Motivated Music in Iran

The music scene in Iran is a vibrant one featuring works of hip hop, pop, traditional Persian music, and politically-motivated music. The video below features the Iranian musician Amir Tataloo singing about Iran’s right to nuclear energy. In the video, you will hear the artist compare nuclear energy to the wind, a gun, a fire, and other various things that when used for peaceful purposes can be good, but when used with bad intentions are highly destructive forces. The vocabulary in the song is highly colloquial, but it can be easily understood. The video includes subtitles which were provided from the artist himself, so they are not the most accurate translations available.

Here is a list of vocabulary that can be heard in this video. Since this is a Memri TV clip, you can find an English transcript of the video here.
