Songs That Changed the World--The Most Important Songs of the Rock Era: "We Are the World" by U.S.A. for Africa

When so much talent combines for a project, it's something worth listening to.  It appeals to our better angels for a better world, and there's never really been anything like it.
"We Are the World"
by U.S.A. for Africa

Written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie

There comes a time when we hear a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
and it's time to lend a hand to life
There greatest gift of all
We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
We are all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know,
Love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving
There's a choice we're making
We're saving our own lives
it's true we'll make a better day
Just you and me
Send them your heart so they'll know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand
When you're down and out, there seems no hope at all
But if you just believe there's no way we can fall
Let us realize that a change can only come
When we stand together as one
