Earth Day: Songs Of Protest
We can’t let an Earth Day go by without amassing a protest playlist for those who fear the earth is being ill-used. What songs of ecological tragedy move you? Do you start with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Marvin Gaye[/lastfm] – “Mercy, Mercy Me”?
Are you old enough to remember Jim Morrison of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Doors [/lastfm]singing “What have they done to the earth? What have they done to our fair sister? Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her. Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn. And tied her with fences and dragged her down.”
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Rea [/lastfm]lays it on the line in the song “The Road to Hell, Part 2.”
[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]World Party [/lastfm]said Good-bye to Jumbo with this pertinent question, “Is it Too Late?”
And if you like to take your ecological disasters with a smile, you always turn to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Randy Newman[/lastfm].
