Have Fun * Do Good iMix

I was searching through the iTunes Music Store's iMix section for new running music and thought I'd add my own iMix, so here is my 30 minute Have Fun * Do Good mix. If you go to the iTunes Music Store's iMix section and search by "iMix name" for "Have Fun * Do Good Mix" it should come up and you can hear bits of the songs.

Have Fun * Do Good Mix

1. Proud by Heather Small & Various Artists (from the Queer as Folk soundtrack).
I think this song is meant to be about living with gay pride, but for me the lyric, "What have you done today to make you feel proud?" is about living with integrity in all aspects of your life.

2. Where Is the Love? by the Black Eyed Peas & Justin Timberlake
Wow. I never realized Justin Timberlake was on that song. Scary. But it is still a great song:
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality

3. Everyone Deserves Music by Michael Franti & Spearhead
Yay for Oakland native Michael Franti!
Everyone deserves music, sweet music
Even our worst enemies Lord, they deserves music, music

4. We Don't Stop by Michael Franti & Spearhead
Yes, I love Michael Franti:

They gotta war for oil, a war for gold
A war for money and a war for souls
A war on terror, a war on drugs
A war on kindness and a war on hugs
A war on birds and a war on bees
They gotta a war on hippies tryin' save the trees
A war with jets and a war with missiles
A war with high seated, government officials
Wall street war, on high finance
A war on people who just love to dance
A war on music, a war on speech
A war on teachers and the things they teach
A war for the last 500 years
War's just messin' up the atmosphere
A war on Muslims, a war on Jews
A war on Christians and Hindus
A whole lotta people just sayin' kill them all
They gotta a war on Mumia Abu Jamal
The war on pot, is a war that's failed
A war that's fillin' up the nation's jails
World war one, two, three and four
Chemical weapons, biological war
Bush war 1, Bush war 2
They gotta war for me, they gotta war for you!

5. Don't Give Up (Africa) by Alicia Keys & Bono
This is a remake of Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush's,"Don't Give Up." It was released in honor of World AIDS day this year. 100 percent of the proceeds from iTunes' download sales of this song go to Keep a Child a Alive.

6. Wake Up Everybody, Pt. 1 by Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes
The chorus says it all:
The world won't get no better if we just let it be
The world won't get no better we gotta change it yeah, just you and me.

7. The New Heroes, Pt. 2 by Christopher Hedges from the soundtrack of the PBS series about social entrepreneurs, The New Heroes
