A few of the usual suspects are suggested, including “Lawyers, Guns and Money” by the immortal Warren Zevon.
In time for Friday and the weekend, here’s a proposed playlist for mediators. (And no, “Kumbaya” does not make the cut. Not on my list, pal.)
- Walk a Mile in My Shoes, Joe South
- We Can Work It Out, John Lennon and Paul McCartney
- Put Down That Weapon, Midnight Oil
- (What’s So Funny) ‘Bout Peace, Love and Understanding, written by Nick Lowe and performed by Elvis Costello
- Why Can’t We Be Friends, War
- Let’s Work Together, Canned Heat
And, of course, INXS’s “Mediate“:
What’s on your mediator’s playlist?
