Songs For Change is a call to songwriters old and new to put into words and music their observations of what's going on in the world today; to write songs that reflect our times; indeed songs which have the power to change our world. This website is a forum for writers to submit their songs, listen to what others have created and to discuss music, politics etc on the forums. It's a virtual community for songwriters! So get writing, submit your song to the website (for details go to Send Your Song) and listen to what others have sent in.
On this website there are over 100 topical songs from all over the world. You can download these songs and lyrics by clicking on The Songs.
