"Stand Together" as written by Michael Louis Diamond, Adam Horovitz, Adam Nathaniel Yauch, Mario Caldato Jr., Ron Aspery and Colin Hodgkinson....
I don't see things quite the same as I used to
As I live my life, I've got just me to be true to
When I find that I don't know about just what to do
I turn and look within—to see what I should do
Now I'm not sure what it takes to be hip
A lot of people making music that to me ain't shit
So I ask creation for rhymes for this jam
Gimme lickle solo and I'll take the mic stand

(Love vibe, love vibe, love vibe, love vibe)
(Love vibe, love vibe, love vibe, love vibe)

Yeah, as the earth spins into a brand new day
I see the light on the horizon's not fading away
Gonna shine from within, like a bright white sun
No need to hide and no place to run
Got the vibrations of the music bringing light to your mind
So you can move and groove, and feel the beat of the time
Sense the power in the air as it starts to move
You get a real good feeling that you just can't lose

(Love vibe, contemplation time)
(Love vibe, intuition time)
(Love vibe, evolution time)
(Love vibe, resolution time)

Free your mind, it's time for good times
And let yourself move, it's a time to shine
Spread your wings in the sky, feelin' good inside
You're breaking free, with no need to hide
I got the music cuttin' through me, take control of my soul
I can't hold back, I've got to let go

Stand together (people come together now)
It's about time (we've got to get together now)
Stand together (people come together now)
I said it's about time (we've got to get together now), come on
Stand together (people come together now)
I said it's about time (we've got to get together, y'all)

I think we should stand together

    General CommentWhen Check Your Head first came out, this was one of my favorite songs on the record. The lyrics are so positive, and the sound's hard-hitting. Yauch's vocals on this reminded me a bit of Disco Dave from Paul's Boutique.

    General CommentThat's funny! I agree with the previous post. This song sounds similar to a song in the B-Boy Bouillibaisse medley at the end of Paul's Boutique. I also used to call it Disco Dave. But since that post the Beasties re-released Paul's Boutique with B-Boy Bouillibaisse broken up into separate tracks. It was actually called A Year And A Day & has a sample of Who's That Lady by The Isley Brothers. Stand Together has a similar guitar riff. Not sure if it is sampled or original, but the lyrics are structured a lot like A Year And A Day. The creaky door soundbite is just bad ass. Certainly an underrated song from Check Your Head. It's all Yauch until the very end of the song. With all the great stuff on this album, Stand Together gets lost in the shuffle a little because there's only one Beastie in it.
