I'd like to invite everybody to share some music about living in the age of AIDS.

No matter whether one is infected or affected by HIV, there could be many memories to share by facing the music.

From the first time one realized that HIV existed, to all kinds of fears, anxieties and stigma ...
Through all that in three decades, there must be memories and songs?

I'll start with one position, which is an HIV Positive experience:

From the musical Rent - "Another Day":

Hmm nice.

BTW,HIV is not a disease.It was created by WHO for contrilling population explosion.
And Condom does not help prevent HIV.

Queen - These are the days of our lives.

A historical song of saying goodbye to a huge amount of fans, yet officially it was still denied that Freddie had AIDS, until about a day before his passing.

Those days were different, and the fact that it was finally admitted at all was quite remarkable.

Perhaps it turned the tide from sensationalism to global advocacy.

Annie Lennox gets shown Khayelitsha in South Africa.

The clip (which includes some music) is not representative of the entire SA, but highlights some of the social problems associated with HIV.

Hope and recovery since HAART in 1996.

A death sentence for most becomes a potentially manageable chronic condition, often with less complications than other chronic medications.

The "Lazarus Effect" from triple therapy.

Dying people literally rising from their death-beds.

This clip shows a backward motion over 90 days of an AIDS patient, from recovery to before the first anti-retroviral treatment:

It has side-effects, and it's not a solution for all, but it does lead to the recovery and the survival of many precious people.

The Four Bitchin' Babes are fantastic.

South Africa: a protest by the Treatment Action Campaign (TAC) against gender violence.

The song is titled Molo TAC (greetings TAC), and MFS refers to Medicins Sans Frontieres (Doctors without borders).

These non-profit organizations were the first to challenge the big pharma cabal and their high profits, as well as offering free treatment from pilot programs in impoverished areas.

During the Mbeki era they also challenged and won court cases against AIDS denialist con-artists, especially when they made false claims that the TAC was funded by big pharma, or against conmen who killed people by convincing them that ARVs were poisonous and put them on "vitamins", which later turned out to contain illegal single dosages of an ARV, as well as other useless or questionable ingredients.

TAC march in Cape Town, 2006:

Often the music would rework old anti-apartheid songs.

Some history of the TAC, with more music.
Treatment Action Campaign: The first five years - Part 3:
State violence is eventually evident.
This shows that when state power adopts conspiracy theories on medicine, this can also be very dangerous.

I think this is a very good HIV/AIDS Awareness clip, made by students in 2008 (although it's debatable whether big organizations have not squandered more money than smaller groups).

It is set to the song Fix You by Coldplay.

World AIDS Day 2012.

Despite searching for theme songs and music, it was very difficult to find any.

Well this YouTube user apparently releases a clip every year, and the people were all friends and family.

All of my memories - Within Temptation.
