Comedic news pundits Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert may have provided the humorous skits poking fun at the right/left-wing extremes of the news media these days, but in between their light-hearted comedy, big name musical acts joined in on the fun to provide a more serious tone to help get the message across.
At their massive Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear right on the lawn of the National Mall in Washington D.C., several artists including John Legend along with the Roots, gospel diva Mavis Staples, Tony Bennett and a hilarious music battle between [lastfm]Cat Stevens[/lastfm], [lastfm]Ozzy Osbourne[/lastfm] and the [lastfm]O’Jays[/lastfm] help restore sanity to the American people and get everyone on board the “Love Train.”
What do [lastfm]Cat Stevens[/lastfm] (a.k.a. Yusef Islam), [lastfm]Ozzy Osbourne[/lastfm] and the [lastfm]O’Jays[/lastfm] have in common? They’re all musical conductors for a different type a train they want you to come aboard. Question is, which train do you want to board: Cat Stevens’ “Peace Train,” Ozzy’s “Crazy Train,” or do you just want to feel the love on the O’Jays’ “Love Train’?
Watch the clip from Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear and decide which train you’d board!
