7 Songs to Add to Your Earth Day Playlist

Did you know, April 22 marks the 45th anniversary of Earth Day? To celebrate I’ve complied a list of songs that brings awareness to the wonderful everyday beauty around us. I love music and these songs acts as a subtle reminder of our responsibility as humans. No matter what you’re doing on Earth Day, whether you’re planting a tree, or creating environmentally friendly crafts with the kids, why don’t you kick off the day with these inspiring and educational songs about mother earth. Most importantly, I hope these songs encourages us to be a bit more conscious of the roles we play in our environment.

1. Earth Song – Michael Jackson
Did you ever stop to notice/This crying Earth, this weeping shore?/What about the seas/The heavens are falling down/I can’t even breathe

2. Waiting On The World To Change – John Mayer
It’s not that we don’t care,/We just know that the fight ain’t fair/So we keep on waiting/Waiting on the world to change

3. Big Yellow Taxi- Counting Crows
They took all the trees, and put em in a tree museum/And they charged the people a dollar and a half to see them/Hey farmer, farmer, put away your DDT/I don’t care about spots on my apples,/Leave me the birds and the bees

4. Conviction of the Heart – Kenny Loggins
One with the Earth, with the sky/I believe we’ll survive/If we only try/How long must we wait to change

5. New World Water – Mos Def
The sun is sitting in the treetops burning the woods/And as the flames from the blaze get higher and higher/They say, “Don’t drink the water! We need it for the fire!”

6. Wake up America – Miley Cyrus
Wake up America/We’re all in this together/It’s our home so let’s take care of it

7. Say Shh – Atmosphere
Don’t take it for granted, instead take a look around/Quit complaining and build something on that ground/Plant something on that ground, dance and sleep on that ground
