Get on Up album description:It happens that the film uses a music background of a single direction. Sometimes they have completely or fully instrumental music accompaniment. It happens also that some style prevails, or some singer performed a huge piece of soundtrack.
But this film has surpassed many. It has the entire soundtrack of one singer – James Brown. Nearly fully one style only – funk (I Got You (I Feel Good) or Night Train (Live)). Some songs are like jazz (as, for example, Mother Popcorn, Pt. 1) and there are a couple of soul songs, but the aforementioned funk holding palm among all that is collected here.
The film, for which James Brown sang, is about James Brown and for active promotion of James Brown. It tells the story of a man who went to his success ambitiously, through the prism of music, regardless of obstacles and achieved success. You cannot succeed in another way in this life. If people spit on your back, it means that you're ahead. If people say bad things behind you – you must know that you are on your way to prosperity. If all talk behind, it still means that you're doing a right thing. So if you've got a lot of hatred from others, it is only because you are the undisputed leader, and they afraid of you horribly, as hell, to tremble in their knees. Who knows, maybe they urinate at night because of fear? And the film proves completely this statement that if you want to succeed, then you have to forget about enemies and to do what is good for you. And if you're a professional along with it, you will definitely achieve success. Henry Ford, for example, launched his factory only after 4 complete failures. Only fifth attempt was successful. A creator of the Barbie doll could not sell her idea to anyone for 10 years! Strive for and you will achieve!
