Even though the #LittleIndiaRiot has died down, it is apparent that discussions will not any time soon. However, Mixtape Monday must go on. With no intention of adding fuel to the flame, we would like to dedicate these ten songs to the angsty, the racist, the anti-racist, the xenophobic and indifferent alike. Some of these songs express our deepest condolences to the families of the boys in blue.
Imagine – Tucson Tribute (Sam Tsui, Ahmir Cover) – John Lennon
Shut Up – Black Eyed Peas
Always Love – Nada Surf
King Of Anything – Sara Bareilles
Ice Ice Baby – Vanilla Ice
In The Waiting Line – Zero 7
Feels Like We Only Go Backward – Arctic Monkeys
Keep Breathing – Ingrid Michaelson
It’s Only Life – The Shins
Of course there are a billion songs we could name off the top of our heads that would probably stir up more emotion (Eg. Take Me To The Riot by Stars, Fire Water Burn by Bloodhound Gang), but that’s another playlist for another day.
