Here’s a great article about music’s effect on social change campaigns in the past and wondering where it is today: http://flip.it/-FmwpY

Most people old enough to remember…

Pete Seeger

the late 1980s, or before, recall that all social change movements used to have participatory music that was common to those who were active in that effort, as well as to others who were not active, but were supportive. Sometime around the early nineties, use of this tool diminished and – in many instances – vanished, at least in the U.S.

Woody Guthrie

Lots of social change songs are still being written and hip-hop has become the voice of many social change activists, but hardly any of these songs involve the audience as participants.

Bob Dylan

This site is devoted to re-energizing social change movements by offering readily sing-able songs – songs that have the potential to weld crowds into movements through shared participation in singing.

    We’re wondering if you’ve considered taking the written content from peterbergel.org and converting it into videos to promote on Youtube? It’s another method of generating traffic.
