If we could make a music CD...

Ok, this is just an idea spawned from another thread. Pleasant replies only please. This is a Chinese website, but it is frequented by people from all over the world. I think that is very interesting and really nice. So here's my idea:

What if we could make a CD together? Maybe we can do it for real eventually, I would be willing to do it, I can get songs and burn CD's. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. First, let's just think of some songs.

What song would you give to China or to the whole world as a gift?
My choice is below. It could be any genre. It would be nice if they were all hopeful, positive songs - think of it as a gift to the future or current people. It would be great if you could include the title, band or writer, and the lyrics. If you have them in English, Chinese, and their own language if it is different, please include whatever you can.
Take your time and give it some thought!

My first idea:

Only People - John Lennon

Only people know just how to talk to people
Only people know just how to change the world
Only people realize the power of people
Well, a million heads are better than one
So come on, get it on!

Well I know how we tried and the millions of tears that we cried
Now we are hipper we been thru the trip
And we can't be denied, with woman and man side by side
Make no mistake it's our future we're making
Bake the cake and eat it too!
We don't want no Big Brother* scene!  

Only people know just how to talk to people
Only people know just how to change the world
Only people realize the power of people
Well, a million heads are better than one
So come on, get it on!

We'll it's long overdue there ain't nothing better to do
Now we are hipper we been thru the trip
We can fly right on through, there's nothing on earth we can't do
Fish or cut bait it's our future we're making
All together now pull the chain
We don't want no Big Brother* scene!

Only people know just how to talk to people
Only people know just how to change the world



*Big Brother scene - has also been seen written as "pig brother". I think Big Brother makes more sense, refering to the book and concept of always being watched. If anyoen has any info on which lyric is correct, let me know. I have no idea what "pig brother" would mean, but perhaps it means something.
I am not rich.  :L

what about...

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'
In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race
Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Madness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how anger works and operates
Man, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone
So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin'
in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love
Where's the love, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the truth, y'all, come on (I don't know)
Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love
The love, the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our wrong direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema
Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek

Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)

Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)
Where is the love (The love)

we gotta find out who owns the song

get their permission for it's use...after that i'm sure there'd be production people willing to volunteer their services  and studio equipment...we just need to make it for a good cause somehow
