Last week, Robin posted a lovely tribute to the Water Blog in the form of Logan Whitehurst’s “Tokyo Narita.” The Water Blog ran with this idea, posting several other theme song options that have something to do with the wet stuff.
Which got me thinking…what songs do you think capture the Red Cross spirit?
We’ve brainstomed a few of them before — James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain,” for example — but I do have a personal favorite. When burning a CD for a friend of mine who’s off in Nigeria working for Doctors Without Borders, I included this classic:
A couple of lyrics that I think are apt:
We care a lot — about disasters, fires, floods and killer bees
We care a lot — about the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines
We care a lot — about you people ‘cuz we’re out to save the world
Pretty much sums up any humanitarian aid agency, no?
So, with this said, what are your picks for a Red Cross theme song?
P.S. Yes, I think I do still have my collection of Garbage Pail Kids…I’m definitely a child of the 80’s.
