Harvest for the World

Originally a R&B hit for the legendary Isley Brothers way back in 1976, "Harvest for the World" was given new life in a rustic folk-rock makeover by The Christians in 1988. What is most remarkable about the Christians' cover is its accompanying cleverly made, topically aware claymation video clip, which tackles socially conscious topics like Third World poverty and hunger, capitalist greed and rampant war-mongering. Check out the promo here.
