The major record companies have joined forces to create a new digital-only compilation CD to benefit the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. It’s called Songs for Japan and includes John Lennon’s “Imagine,” U2’s “Walk On,” Bob Dylan’s “Shelter from the Storm,” Bruce Springsteen’s “Human Touch,” Bon Jovi’s “What Do You Got?,” Elton John’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” Sting’s “Fragile” and many other songs from classic and newer artists. You can get the album now at iTunes and 100 percent of sales will benefit the Japanese Red Cross.

Sony Music, EMI, Universal and Warners are jointly releasing the set to help the people of Japan.
