I'm doing research for my human rights assignment. Trying to find music and songs with hidden messages of hope, courage and bravery... and others that have a humanity message or something. I've found a few songs... They are for a slide show of images that I will use in my presentation. I'm not sure how many songs I will use... Probably 5 maybe... I dunno...

I guess when I think of songs for this assignment are for like when you see ads for world vision or something...

So if anyone can give me any hints on some songs that could be useful...

I am definitely using the following two songs -

Imagine - John Lennon
Where the Streets have no name - U2

The other songs that I've found just in google searches are behind the cut...

I'm still yet to go through my playlist of music though...

I've gotta download a few of the songs underneath the cut to see how they go and whether they'll be appropriate or not... but yeah... Most of my assignment is about the war on terror and war in iraq... but for the slide show, I'm using images from other war torn countries (Burma, Rwanda, Columbia etc), third world, poverty stricken countries... domestic violence... etc...
