Eco-Music Monday: Michael Jackson “Earth Song”

Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song” was his first song that overtly dealt with the environment and animal welfare. “Earth Song” was accompanied by a lavish music video shot in four geographical regions. The video centered on the destruction and rebirth of Earth and went on to receive a Grammy nomination in 1997. In 2008, a writer for the Nigeria Exchange noted, “‘Earth Song’ drew the world’s attention to the degradation and bastardization of the Earth as a fall out of various human activities.” The song reveals itself to be highly spiritual at the end where Jackson calls on people to remember the Earth is their inheritance from God.
