“Song of the Week” lists songs that celebrate nature and/or relate a message about the environment. A new song is added each week or two; this page will archive a history of the songs. Listen to the complete playlist on our channel. Sometimes videos get deleted, so older links on this page may not work, but we clean up the playlist often!

Click here for a fascinating project uniting musicians with climate change: People’s Climate Music

People’s Climate Music, an imprint of Hip Hop Caucus’ Think 100% MUSIC, is behind the production and release of various climate-focused music releases. People’s Climate Music was launched in 2014 to mobilize people for the People’s Climate March, when 400,000 people took to the streets of New York and millions marched around the world to call on world leaders to enact a bold international climate agreement. Check out the project that launched it all, the album HOME, and our music projects since.

Song of the Week — 3 Comments

  1. One of my favorites….Marvin Gaye, “Mercy, Mercy Me”
    “Mercy, Mercy Me (The Ecology)”

    Woo ah, mercy mercy me
    Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no
    Where did all the blue skies go?
    Poison is the wind that blows from the north and south and east
    Woo mercy, mercy me, mercy father
    Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no
    Oil wasted on the ocean and upon our seas, fish full of mercury
    Ah oh mercy, mercy me
    Ah things ain’t what they used to be, no no
    Radiation under ground and in the sky
    Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
    Oh mercy, mercy me
    Ah things ain’t what they used to be
    What about this overcrowded land
    How much more abuse from man can she stand?
    Oh, na na…
    My sweet Lord… No
    My Lord… My sweet Lord
