WegoWise's Top 5 Songs for an Energy Conscious Listener
Whether you want to be a more informed citizen or just want to kill some time before 5 on a Friday afternoon, WegoWise has got you covered. What are two things everyone loves? Music and Green living, of course. We are bringing both right to your eyes and ears right now. So peruse our best links, give us some feedback and be sure to share some of the info you just gleaned with other interested parties at the parties you are hopefully attending this weekend. Brought to you by Dan, Nate, Sean, Lily, Catherine, Casey, Kate and Bert.
- Neil Young - "After the Goldrush" - Check out the list of the ten 'greenest' musicians over according to Spinner. Young went on tour in buses fueled by a mixture of soybean and vegetable oil.
- Marvin Gaye - "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" - Not only is this a classic jam, it's also a cry for people to consider the damage man is doing to the the world (the ecology). Really makes you wonder, "What's Goin' On?" Sorry.
- Radiohead - "Fake Plastic Trees" - Radiohead is every environmentalist's favorite musical artist (right behind Miley Cyrus). Their lead singer, Thom Yorke, sings the theme to The Age of Stupid, the eco-doomsday documentary. And Yorke and O'Brien had some insightful things to say on The Colbert Report.
- Björk - "Human Behaviour" - This song is about the illogical nature of human behaviour (sorry for the spelling). Björk is an outspoken environmental activist. She has written editorials for the New York Times, recorded singles with Thom Yorke and will be the headliner at The Oya Music Festival, which Planet Green deemed, "the greenest music festival in the world."
- Joni Mitchell - "Big Yellow Taxi" - This is a gimme, and there may be better cover-versions of this, but it's a classic about the changing environment.
So there you have it. Maybe next time, Hologram Tupac. Have a good weekend.
