Just as a way to remind people how awesome Bill Moyers is and to direct people to his show’s website where you can be enlightened on any number of worthy subjects, I wanted to post about this documentary (I’m on a bit of a streak these days – more to come) Playing for Change: Peace Through Music. Moyers recently interviewed music producer Mark Johnson, who took a song from a streetside guitarist in his neighborhood, recorded it and travelled through the world with it, compiling other musicians contributions on top to create beautiful renditions. That’s it in a nutshell.

Here’s Stand by Me, having travelled the world. Beeeeaaaauuutiful.

Here’s the interview Johnson did With Moyers (also on site linked above)

And here’s the film’s trailer. Man, another one for the list.
