Here are the Songs to stop the coalmines & fracking, poke fun at fossils & fuelish humans, celebrate renewables of all genders and make choirs spring up at an action or staffroom near you. Anyone at an action can use their mobiles to find the words and sing along, there and then.
All these songs use popular tunes so they shouldn’t take much time to pick up. We’re discerning in our selection, only choosing songs that speak truthfully about the issues and are a pleasure to sing in every way. We hope you enjoy them!
Each title links to a post where you can find the lyrics, and most of the songs have audio links. (If you are or know a Music Video maker, we’d like a music video for Carbon is the World’s Worst Friend!)
If you are at a REEF rally, all the songs pertinent to the Reef or mention it are tagged “Reef” so you can pull up a list of them. The tags are at the bottom of the page on your mobile and at the right on a browser. Same for “ADANI”, “Coal”, “CSG”, “Solar” themes etc.
There are also Song Books ready for printing for a rally near you. They don’t have all the songs though …
Also feel free to contact me via my website http://www.jennyfitzgibbon.com if you have other suggestions or queries.
Don’t forget to check out the “Links to other Climatey songs and creative stuff” page above. Inspiring what’s happening around the world.
