Odds & Sods

A New Band Aid

This is a kind of good news, bad news type of story. The good news is that the new Band Aid 20 single “Do They Know It’s Christmas” in support of African famine relief is now available and I hope they sell a boatload since it really is a worthy cause. The bad news is that, in my mind it is just terrible. It just not have the originals innocence and charisma (which was my criticism of all the “me too” projects like “We Are the World” and “Tears Are Not Enough”) and all it seems to do is muck up the melody of the original. The good news is that by downloading the single from the link I have posted you will also get the original version so go ahead and do some good.
