    Yes! Canadian band Moxy Fruvous had a song called “River Valley,” which you can see covered here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zvoypIoskM. Also, Joni Mitchell’s “Big Yellow Taxi” is an environmental song, with lyrics like “paved paradise and put up a parking lot.” There’s also this great list of environmental songs:

    Yes. There are countless environmental songs. Some examples are:

    Michael Jackson – Earth Song
    The Turtles – Earth Anthem
    Joni Mitchell – Big Yellow Taxi
    Jack Johnson – The 3 R’s
    Marvin Gaye – Mercy Mercy Me

    This site has a good list of environmental songs: http://www.grinningplanet.com/6001/environmental-songs.htm.

    There are absolutely loads – from Disney (the Circle of Life, Colours of the Wind) to pop-folk music (many of Jack Johnson’s songs), themes of nature have been common in music for centuries. The site PlanetPatriot has an entire section dedicated just to different environmental musicians.

    A personal favourite, Woody Guthrie’s This Land is Your Land
