Ok, help me out....where is this quote?

I know, know, know I've heard a song or seen a video, that has something in the beginning about "in a language we can all understand" (or words to that effect). I think that quote is from some speech that they dubbed in, then it goes into the actual music. Pretty sure it's not Stevie Wonder (which comes up in all my searches). Thought it was the Beatles....but wifey knows them front and back and denies it. Also pretty sure it's a semi-metal band from the 70's?

Of course, now that I've asked, I'll hear it on the oldies rock station later today I'm sure.

You got it...that's the one I was thinking of! Little later than I thought though. Thats what happens as you age I guess.

Now I can research the quote.

Thanks!! You all are the best resource I have!

Edit...both my smart stepson and not so smart me couldn't figure out the speaker in the beginning of it. We were guessing JFK or maybe FDR, he said maybe Churchill, then I thought maybe MLK but it just didn't fit the comments. Wow...both surprised it was Malcom X. Have to look for the context of it.

Odd how crap gets in your head and you have to figure it out.
