I 've been working here in Nashville for the last few days with immigrants who have been affected by the recent flood. It's pretty humbling to see the courage that some people can have when surrounded by such devastation in a country that is not their own. Colombia All-Stars wrote a song about it. It's pretty dang good. What's your favorite 'immigrant song'?

PS. Our sister site Newstalgia has for its weekend offering a rare concert from Stone The Crows featuring Maggie Bell and guitarist Les Harvey, live at the Paris Theatre, London in 1971.
