Pumped up for Change


Notes

This playlist is for all the movers and shakers out there that want to change the world. Some of the songs speak about changing the world and others are simply there because I feel they are motivating me to just go make change happen. I hope you enjoy! “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”- Margaret Mead

Hello, I wanted to suggest a song for your playlist, by Alt-Americana artist, Zak Smith.
Zak released “Have You Looked Outside”, in response to the endless cycle of human and civil rights injustices happening in this country at the moment. You can view the music video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dbHUQ2WBXb8 and I will send you the mp3 if you decided to use.

Zak was heavily involved in the Occupy Wall Street movement and urges us (Americans) to resist apathy and fight for the kind of change that improves human lives. Using this video as a vehicle, Zak seeks to put an end to corporate greed and corruption, racism, discrimination based on sexual orientation, bigotry that jeopardizes immigration reform, police brutality, etc.

Additionally, you can check out Zak’s op-ed on the subject on Huffington Post Politics at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/zak-smith/what-not-to-be-apathetic-_b_7181830.html

Let me know if you are interested in playing the song.
