What do Marvin Gaye, Public Enemy, Bob Marley, Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, and Rage Against the Machine have in common? They are just a few of the many musicians that have used their art to make a political statement. Songs of peace, war, civil rights movements, anti-government…for as long as people have been putting music to words, artists have been using their voice to take a stance on what they believe in. It is the most beautiful way to express disdain for a situation.

Merv Pinny has joined the fight with his most recent single OB Can You Hear the Children Cry. This song has every ingredient needed to make his statement. The march of the guitars along with his memorizing vocals create the perfect sounds to be set against this powerful video. He wanted to create a song that exposes the damaging effects of war on children and he nailed it. But then he went one step further and is donating all the proceeds from the sale of this single to various charities that serve children in crisis. You need to hear this song. Share this song. Support this song, this artist, and any artist that is helping fight the big fight.

Extended Plays is an ongoing music series of all the music that I stumble upon. I listen to the music, go with my gut and spill my honest and sometimes brutal opinion all over this blog. I hope you take the time to check out the artists I review for yourselves. I tend to believe that I am always right about everything but the most beautiful thing about music is that my opinion doesn’t matter to anyone but myself.
