Earth Day Soundtrack (AUDIO, VIDEO): 9 Lesser-Known, Environmentally-Themed Songs

Posted: Updated:

Music has always had a place in fueling the environmental movement, but sometimes a weighty message a la "Heal the World" can lay it on a little thick. For our Earth Day soundtrack, we've tried to steer away from the more overplayed environmental songs, opting for ones where the message doesn't overpower the music. Our selection of songs with green themes ranges from Gorillaz and The Beatles to Talking Heads and Mos Def. These tracks aren't all overtly green, but they all have subtle messages that will get you in the mood to celebrate the Earth, plus they're songs we hope you'd like to listen to anyways. Let us know your favorites, and which lesser-known environmental songs you think we missed!
