Various Artists - Songs For Japan

New Music Tuesday has something special today. I think by now, we all know and understand the tragedies that have been going on in Japan. From time to time, the music industry does whatever they can to help provide support to other nations going through hard times. Today dropped one of those efforts. The "big four" record companies got together (EMI, Sony, Universal, and Warner) and decided to waive any royalties can go directly to the Japanese Red Cross. This dropped electronically on iTunes last week, and the physical record came out today. If you have any bones in your body that like to help and are charitable, this is a great way to support the cause. Best Buy has this for 14 dollars which seems more than reasonable given there are nearly 40 songs here. A lot of these are new remixes and live performances, so it may not be just repeating old tracks that you've already purchased. If nothing else, it's 14 bucks to help the families who've fallen victim in Japan, and you get a little out of it. And hey, it's also still a tax write off. I hope this does well, and raises a substantial amount of money for aid. I don't find myself giving nearly enough, but I know this is something I will be doing today. You guys should too. It's for a great cause, and it's a pretty solid album to boot. It really is a win-win. Happy Giving B Siders!
