As we’ve shown before on ‘razzi, it’s a fine line to walk as a musician when composing a song that addresses real-world issues. More often than not, such efforts result in a great message embodied in a crap song. Every now and again though…

Sheryl Crow has released a new music video for her latest tune Shine Over Babylon that will get you up to speed pretty quick on everything that’s wrong with the world. In an interesting twist, Crow makes her points by weaving an array of newspaper headlines from several years ago to as recent as last month. She covers everything from the Iraq war to climate change to the atrocities against monks in Burma.

It helps that the song is actually well done — in the traditional Sheryl Crow style — which may or may not be your cup of tea. Either way, it’s a bold and creative use of video that really compliments the song well. Have a look below.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
