Artists United Against Apartheid – Sun City (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th June 2015

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Sun City” is a 1985 protest song written by Steven Van Zandt, produced by Van Zandt and Arthur Baker and recorded by Artists United Against Apartheid to convey opposition to the South African policy of apartheid. The primary means of that opposition is to declare that all the artists involved would refuse any and all offers to perform at Sun City, a resort which was located within the bantustan of Bophuthatswana, one of a number of internationally unrecognized states created by the South African government to forcibly relocate its black population.

“Sun City” only reached #38 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in December 1985. Only about half of American radio stations played “Sun City”, with some objecting to the lyrics’ explicit criticism of President Ronald Reagan’s policy of “constructive engagement.” (Joey Ramone’s line in the song criticizes Reagan. Ramone also expressed open discontent and criticism towards him with the Ramones song “Bonzo Goes to Bitburg”.) The song was banned in South Africa itself.

The song did somewhat better overseas, reaching #21 on the UK Singles Chart, #4 in Australia and achieving chart action in a number of other European countries, becoming a substantial hit in The Netherlands. It was also a top ten single in Canada in December 1985 and January 1986.

“Sun City” was picked as record of the year by many of the most influential music critics, topping the prestigious international Pazz & Jop Critics Poll for best single of the year.

The album and single raised more than a million U.S. dollars for anti-apartheid projects. It premiered at the United Nations, thanks to the Special Committee Against Apartheid and UN officers such as Aracelly Santana.
