Songs for Israel Independence Day

For Yom HaAtzma'ut I've chosen some songs with "Israel", "Zion" or "Tel Aviv" in the title. As far as I know, none of them were written with Yom HaAtzma'ut in mind. There are a lot more reggae songs that are about Zion, but there is only so much backbeat I can take in one sitting.

Silverchair: Israel's Son

Siouxsie and the Banshees: Israel

Duran Duran: Tel Aviv

Army of Lovers: Israelism

Bob Marley: Iron, Lion, Zion

Damien Marley: Road to Zion

Lauren Hill (Featuring Carlos Santana): To Zion

Stone Senses: Heading for Zion

A band named Israel: Israel Vibration: Natty Dread

And finally,  Israel is not in the title, but in the name of this late Hawaiin singer with the most beautiful voice. Israel Kamakawiwoole: Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World
