    OK, here's another idea inspired by the cover songs.
    Without getting overtly political...
    How about songs that are for peace. Or if you prefer, songs that are
    anti-war?

    As you may, or may not, know the broadcasting conglomerate Clear Chanel has
    a long list of song's its actually banned from being aired on their many
    thousands of radio stations. So, basically, nobody is hearing any songs that
    might even hint at a pro-peace/anti-war stance (and this is with all due
    respect to those out there that agree with the Chicken Hawks that we should
    bomb'em).

    What I'd like to put out there as an idea is a compilation of tracks from
    the scene that offer a pro-peace message. Tracks that come to mind include
    Tony Allen's "We Don't Want No War", or Yo La Tengo's cover of "Nuclear
    War", but I know there are many out there.

    If any record label is reading this, why not take up this as a non-profit
    project?

    Also, to producers out there. How about a song that samples some of these
    tracks? How about splicing, say, David Bowie's "This is Not America" with
    'Time Zone" of something to that effect.

    Any body who takes this idea up: I'll glady post anything you do to
    Mundovibes and I'm sure there are plenty of other sites who would do the
    same.
