The Beatles, Bob Dylan, U2, & Madonna Among Others Donate Tracks To 'Songs For The Philippines' Collection
The biggest names in popular music have donated tracks to the newly released digital benefit album, Songs For The Philippines, according to Rolling Stone. All proceeds from the tracks will go to the victims of Supertyphoon Haiyan in the Philippines, with all artists, managers, and labels agreeing to donate money to the Philippine Red Cross. Among the legendary artists donating tracks to the collection are the Beatles, Bob Dylan, U2, Madonna, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Cher, Beyonce, Kings Of Leon, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Adele, Katy Perry, and many more
 
Paul McCartney maintains that the reason why the Beatles still hit such a multi-generational chord with fans is because the music reflects back the best of humanity: "Number One, it is a force for good. We have a lot of power -- particularly in the Beatles days. Even now, y'know? But then, you had a lot of power. And we always used to say to people, 'Look, we never used it like Hitler. We never sort of said, 'Follow us and go crazy and do something.' But generally we were talking about peace and love and fairly optimistic and positive things, y'know, in the '60s."
