Sometimes it can feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and that everything you do is negatively impacting the environment in some way. But have no fear, for AlterEco is here to alleviate some of the stress with some great tunes!! Give them a listen to during your guilty car rides, so it can at least sound like you’re doing your bit for the planet.

  1. Earth – Lil Dicky

“We love the earth; it is our planet” The ‘White Dude’ rapper inspired us all to stop and think about the planet when this one came out. All proceeds from the song go to the Leonardo Dicaprio Foundation, meaning that for every time you stream the song, money goes into the earth’s pockets.

  1. Bicycle Race (I Want to Ride My Bicycle) – Queen

“I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike,” because having the want to bike to work is half the battle.

  1. Earth Song – Michael Jackson

“Look what we’ve done to the world…” This one doesn’t really need that much explaining.

  1. The 1975 – The 1975

Nope this isn’t a misprint. Less of a song and more of a spoken word piece, the band named a song after themselves and enlisted the help of 16-year-old Greta Thunberg call on political change and warn people that “there are no grey areas when it comes to survival.”

  1. Earth, the oldest computer – Childish Gambino ft. Azealia Banks

“When the world was with this and that, I was young, didn’t know to hold it back, now we here and the world is something else.”

  1. We got a little world of our own – Westlife

“Took for granted everything we had, as if I’d find someone who’s just like you.” We’re really sorry earth, can we take it back?

  1. Trees – TwentyOne Pilots

Our ancient eco friends.

  1. September – Earth, Wind and Fire

Okay, so this one might be a bit of a leap, but the band has earth in their name so protecting the planet must have been important to them, surely? Plus, wind…air pollution? Moving on…

  1. Once in a Lifetime – Talking Heads

Eccentric as David Byrne is, this banger of a song might is worthy of instigating existential crisis in anyone. “You might find yourself” asking, how on earth did humans get here?

  1. Save the world – Swedish House Mafia

The house supergroup is asking all the right questions.
