    Playing vegan versions of popular songs instead of the similar sounding popular songs may help influence the fans of the popular songs and others. Imagine Vegan similar to Imagine by John Lennon Compassion similar to Passion by The Flirts

    A really good Veggie-friendly song about Nature, World Peace, and Harmony among all people and animals, is Kittykat’s piano song BEIRUT. Another great song is her original STARDUST No. 2, also on piano. Beautiful lyrics and singing on both.

    By the way, Kittykat’s lead singer, Silvana Sings live on the performance of ANCIENT MOTHER at the Women’s Spirit Festival with the Temple of the Goddess Singers, is also one to listen for.
