Soundtrack for Urban Altruism?

I'm wondering if together we might come up with a sort of soundtrack for our Urban Altruism class. What songs come to mind given the themes of our course? U2's "New York" and the Decemberists "Los Angeles, I'm Yours" come to mind. But they don't quite hit the right note. I've been thinking alot about the Indigo Girls' "All that We Let In," which should definitely be a track on the Urban Altruism soundtrack.

But what are your thoughts and suggestions? Use the comments function to add your tracks.

    How about "Changes" by Tupac. Shure its a little edgy but it seems to get at the heart of some of the social issues we will be dealing with.

    Here's a not so serious response...

    Jack Johnson's "The Sharing Song" from "Sing-A-Longs & Lullabies for the Film Curious George"

    Lyrics:

    It's always more fun
    To share with everyone
    It's always more fun
    To share with everyone

    If you have two
    Give one to your friend
    If you have three
    Give one to your friend and me

    It's always more fun
    To share with everyone
    It's always more fun
    To share with everyone

    If you've got one
    Here is something you can learn
    You can still share
    Just by taking turns

    If you've got a ball
    Bounce it to the gang
    If there is a new kid
    Invite him out to hang

    If you've got one sandwich
    Cut that thing in half
    If you know a secret joke
    Tell it and share a laugh

    If you've got two drumsticks
    Give one to your friend
    Make one beautiful rhythm
    Share a beat that never ends

    And if you're feeling lonely
    Share time with your mom
    Share some milk and cookies
    And sing the sharing song

    It's always more fun
    To share with everyone
    It's always more fun
    To share with everyone
