140,000

Our goal to find 140,000 environmental love songs that inspire ecological actions, help save our planet earth and stop climate change. Fans and musicians worldwide are invited to help us get those environmental love songs written, recorded and on the charts.

Put on the XOEarth

Fans can help by sponsoring us to write an environmental song about an issue of their choice or sponsor a song we are working on. If you sponsor one of Stele's (my) songs, you will get a copyright co-ownership certificate in your or a friend's name.

Songwriters are invited to add their songs to the Open Mic or any other post. Open Mic environmental songs will be entered in EcoLotto's $4444 lottery.

140,000 was chosen as it is the approximate number of endangered species that may be in danger of extinction.

If you have an event coming up, hire Stele (me) to do his XOEarth Man music and magic show.

Some of Stele's songs are at soundclick.com/greentopia.

Guitar lessons, songwriting and music theory are related services that Stele offers. Most beginners can play a song after one lesson.

Stele (me again) is also a massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular, deep tissue and meditative massage in S Boulder. BodyMindWorks.net.

For all the life, Stele Ely.

  • If you go to http://halfabubbleoffstudios.com you’ll see a music video on a song I wrote called “Dead Trees Standing.” I wrote this song to help forward the message about the millions of valuable dead trees (from beetle kill and past forest fires) going to waste in our National Forests due to unsound Federal (non-management) laws. These trees are only viable for a short time and ultimately become fuel for the next devastating super heated forest fire that will sterilize the ground (preventing regrowth/destroying this renewable natural resource) and also kill precious species in its wake (the “unintended” consequences). Particularly, we need to change the laws and promote the proper management of our forests by removing the overgrowth and beetle killed trees with modern/environmentally friendly logging methods (via helicopters that don’t require roads to be cut into the environment) which in turn helps to stimulate healthy regrowth and eliminate a MAJOR source of CO2 emissions. Also, when properly managed forests experience a fire, they do not become super-heated, and the fire merely takes out the undergrowth (the earth does not get sterilized). A win-win situation!

  • Hi!!
    this is Mauri Nadina, an artists from Argentina.
    I wrote this song and would like to share it with the world.

    Thanks!! Love the Earth, Live with Art.

    Mankind
    Music and lyrics by Mauri

    Mankind we must remind
    Becoming one with nature is the secret of the mind
    Mankind we must remind,
    The teachings of the highest rise in front of our eyes
    Mankind we must remind,
    The fusion of the matter and the energy are profound
    Mother earth gave birth to all beings to unite and survive
    In this life

    Father taught me as a child
    How to build a garden and live off the ground
    Plants and trees would grow year round,
    Guided by the rainfall and the shining Sun.
    Mother taught me how to bake
    How to cook a meal and the love it takes
    Pick the fruits and make ‘em jam
    Saving for the cold days of the winter time
    Pure water form the ground
    Never left us thirsty when the summer comes

    Brother ‘bout fresh herbs he knows
    Some we use for seasoning and some we’ll smoke
    Rasta man knows how to fish,
    Pick coconut and breadfruit, make a beach day dish
    Sister Meli poked my brain
    Teaching me the importance of the “day by day”
    Unty taught me about our waste
    Recycling the materials that might hurt the earth
    Don’t, don’t’ hurt the earth, don’t don’t hurt the Earth!

    We wrote a song and made a video.
    Its about Aliens coming to earth and leaving crop circles, warning us not to destroy our world, as they did with theirs.

    The video stars our grandchildren. Since we put it on the net, it has been translated in to 6 languages. The video is now in English, Italian, Russian, Mandarin, Spanish and Hindi. thats over 3 billion people in over 150 countries could understand it. royandhelen.com

  • Colony Collapse song and visdeo is filmed at sites of ecological friction, the fault lines of conflict between humanity and (the rest of) nature. Check out this totally amazing sad and beautiful video with the Mud Volcano in it : http://youtu.be/YJo4biadkpU
    Viseo includes the Lapindo (Sidoarjo) Mud Disaster that is an eruption of scalding mud and flammable vapors triggered by a gas drilling gone awry. It has buried more than a dozen villages and blocked a major highway, and is expected to keep expanding for the next 25 years. Lapindo is located close to the home town of the the director (Tooliq) and singer (Nova).

  • Dear EarthE Man,
    It was wonderful to chant with you on Pearl Street! You deeply nourished and inspired us. Also good to run into you at the Boulder Farmer's Market.
    Here's a song contribution to your mission: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E86gmNYsyiQ

    In the middle of the ocean,
    Just us on this ship.
    The world is so vast,
    But just us and the ship.

    What do you say to the person,
    That person so careless with our water?
    Don't you see how precious this is, our water?
    Who would do that, grow Kentucky Bluegrass
    On our ship?
    Who would do that? Not me!
    What do you say to the person,
    That person so careless with our fuel?
    Don't you see how precious
    This is, our fuel?
    Who would do that, build
    A bonfire on the deck?
    Who would do that? Not me!

    Refrain:
    Our supplies are limited
    We don't know how far
    We have to go.
    But it's a long, long ways still.
    So think!
    Think what it's gonna take.
    I can't say, but it's a long, long way
    To go.

    Grow a Garden, by Joe Avery : Protest song by Joe Avery against the all-powerful multinational corporations that have been ruining our food, our farmlands and our traditional and natural way of producing what we eat. But the solution is within reach of just about every individual. Just grow a garden. http://youtu.be/hjSlw7Gmbdg

    The world of tomorrow starts today, these thoughts of love are only gay, to save this planet day by day, the darkness of our greed grows, when it is our love that should be too.

  • Behind the house where I lived
    Back when I was a kid
    I played G.I. Joe beneath the tall pine trees
    I'd fight imaginary wars
    Til my mom called from our back porch
    I'd come home covered in that pine pitch from my head down to my knees

    Too big to wrap my arms around
    Surely older than I could count
    Must have been there since the Mayflower crossed the sea
    They'd seen blizzards, hurricanes
    Summer droughts and freezing rain
    Those pines would live forever
    Least that's how it seemed to me

    We all the want the greenest lawn
    A country club where we belong
    And an SUV to get us there in style
    But we don't keep track of what's been lost
    We can't calculate the cost
    When there's no place left for a boy's imagination to run wild
