    I need A song that that deals with a world issue

    Hi, since u all read the subject, u all know what i'm looking for, and yes, it's for educational use(only). I would completely understand the fact if you do not want to help me becuase i should do my own damn work, but after searching for 3.5 straight hours, i've given up. i have no clue where to get one, i did find a few sites with some songs, but there was no place to download them from (this is not going to be illegal becuase i will only use the song to do a (stupid) peper).
    if anyone can help me with this, i will be very thankful!!

    Yeah, you cant go wrong with a RATM song, pretty much all of theirs deal with world issues in some form.

    But to his fans, his problems are world problems.

    Metallica - One

    is a very good song. it deals with the after effects soldiers have once they come back from war.

    Yeah, but I'm sure he would rather to a band that doesn't suck.

    No doubt about it, Metallica sucks now, but Metallica by no means at all sucked when they released that song on the album of And Justice For All. Metallica is on the best bands ever, IMO. Not many bands have produced that many quality albums, however, Metallica has also produced 3 really crappy albums (Load, ReLoad, S&M).

    Regardless of all that, though, One is a very good choice for his song.

    ditto. (although there are many better choices than one for that subject, imho)

    How about "Barry McGuire - Eve of destruction" ?

    If you don't mind oldies, it's the stereotype and probably most famous song about world problems of the 'Nam era.


    The eastern world, it is explodiní.
    Violence flariní, bullets loadiní
    Youíre old enough to kill, but not for votiní
    You donít believe in war, but whatís that gun youíre totiní
    And even the Jordan River has bodies floatiní

    But you tell me
    Over and over and over again, my friend
    Ah, you donít believe
    Weíre on the eve
    of destruction.

    Donít you understand what Iím tryiní to say
    Canít you feel the fears Iím feeliní today?
    If the button is pushed, thereís no runniní away
    Thereíll be no one to save, with the world in a grave
    Take a look around you boy
    Itís bound to scare you boy

    And you tell me
    Over and over and over again, my friend
    Ah, you donít believe
    Weíre on the eve
    of destruction.

    Yeah, my bloodís so mad feels like coagulatiní
    Iím sitting here just contemplatiní
    You canít twist the truth, it knows no regulation.
    Handful of senators donít pass legislation
    And marches alone canít bring integration
    When human respect is disintegratiní
    This whole crazy world is just too frustratiní

    And you tell me
    Over and over and over again, my friend
    Ah, you donít believe
    Weíre on the eve
    of destruction.

    Think of all the hate there is in Red China
    Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
    You may leave here for 4 days in space
    But when you return, itís the same old place
    The poundiní of the drum, the pride and disgrace
    You can bury your dead, but donít leave a trace
    Hate your next-door neighbor, but donít forget to say grace
    AndÖ tell me over and over and over and over again, my friend
    You donít believe
    Weíre on the eve
    Of destruction
    Mm, no no, you donít believe
    Weíre on the eve
    of destruction.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
