What do Sting, Green Day, Ed Sheeran, and Mumford & Sons all have in common? They're all taking part in next week's agit8 project, an anti-poverty movement backed by the One Campaign, created by U2's Bono, designed to influence leaders at the upcoming G-8 summit in Northern Ireland. A group of many great artists will be coming together to get people riled up by re-recording some classic protest songs. If you were producing this record, what songs would you include? Let us know what you think in our comments below or email us at email@example.com and we'll spin a set this morning.
Here's what we played:
Joseph Arthur "A River Blue"
Ralph McTell "Streets of London"
Counting Crows "Big Yellow Taxi"
Buffalo Springfield "For What It's Worth"
