Greenpeace's "GO GREEN" Song Actually Doesn't Suck

greenpeacesong.gifYou know what I’m talking about. Most songs sponsored by organizations are about as catchy as Kevin Federline’s PopoZao. Greenpeace has created a new song called “Go GREEN!” with artists like Sarah McLachlan, Annie Lennox, Natalie Imbruglia, Candy Dulfer, and a whole bunch of other activists. It’s catchy, has cool vocal backgrounds, and almost works. Almost.

The only problem I have with this song is that it quickly goes from a potential “Air it on the radio!” to a personalized rally cry for Greenpeace. Which is cool and all, but damn — what an opportunity missed. Everything else works  perfectly until we get to the chorus which shouts, “Go Green! Greenpeace!”

Don’t get me wrong, I love Greenpeace, but I wish they had left themselves out of the chorus and let the song speak to the issues instead. Ah well, it’s a good start. I guess we’ll have to wait until Sheryl Crow releases her ‘Global Warming’ song to get something with more radio appeal. Either way, I downloaded “Go Green” and would recommend having a listen yourself. There are also some cool re-mixes from various artists that improve upon the original version in various ways.

Had a listen? Disagree completely with me? Speak up!
