Default Music that helped changed the World

What are some songs that helped changed the world and how did they change the world?

For example:

Asimbonango by Johnny Clegg is an incredibly powerful song denouncing apartheid and brought attention to those who fought for equality in South Africa.

^ Johnny Clegg's whole career has been a good example of co-operation and tolerance. To see Nelson Mandela so happy to join in is very touching, and there aren't many artists who can top that !

We may not've noticed it much, but in Africa I believe this epic song-with-a-message was a big hit. It came out in 1987, at a time when it's message was both new and important, and radio was one of the best ways to circulate information, so I like to think that Franco's song helped to awaken people to the danger of AIDS. If so, he helped make Africa a better place. Just two years after releasing this record Franco's death occasioned four days of national mourning in Zaire: that gives some indication of this guy's status, and how people presumably paid attention to his lyrics:

Freddie Mercury's improvisation at the Live Aid concert.



Because during those few moments, he literally had the world singing with him.
