Mick Jones of the Clash and Tony James of Generation X teamed up in 2002 to form the band Carbon/Silicon and they asked, “Its the 21st Century … can we find the drive and inspiration to create something new – again?”
Not only did they create something new, but they have an inspiring take on the news. Punk rockers with an inspiring, yet catchy message, very sexy!
Check out these lyrics.
The News:People started caring about what they eat And people started smiling at everyone they meet
And people started looking for good instead of bad Realize what they could lose in what they always had
People started growing, instead of being crushed And people started slowing down instead of being rushed And people started looking with very different eyes And this information now comes as a surprise Good morning here’s the news and all of it is good
Good evening here’s the news and all of it is good
And the weather’s good! People started calling those in power to account And people started saying, “I want my voice to count”
And people started learning that they don’t need to fight
And they control their future and try to make it right
And people started feeling that better’s on the way
And people started feeling some peace and calm today And people started liking the way that good life feels
And every precious moment becoming what is real Good morning here’s the news and all of it is good Good evening here’s the news and all of it is good
And the weather’s good!
