Earth Day Music Video — "Switch Out the Light" by XY Limited.


One of our multi-year readers (who I’d never been in touch with before) dropped me a music video with a clear environmental / Earth Day theme that he and his band recently created. I love it (love the music… and, of course, the message is good), so thought I’d share it here for Earth Day. Enjoy!

(Below the video is a description, credits, and some links from the YouTube page.)

Our friends at Light Bulb Finder asked for a tune about choosing efficient bulbs, and thus this video was born. Hope you enjoy our foray into green songwriting! It’s amazing how big a difference one little change can make.
