Sun City

A 1985 collaboration by dozens of musical artists to protest apartheid in South Africa. You can read the story of Steven Van Zandt's project Sun City at Wikipedia. If you are young, you'll want to learn about apartheid, too. The song never got much airplay due to the mixing of genres and the criticism of President Reagan's policies, but it was a favorite of mine.

I remember this. I thought it was cool, and I do believe it made a difference.
