The "We Are The World 25" For Haiti Video

Here's "We Are The World 25 For Haiti" video. Not to sound like a crotchety old bastard, but they had me till the big rap finale. I was still hanging on a bit there, but the Kanye West ending made me wanna swallow glass.



Pink and Jennifer Hudson are A+ though, and Celine Dion did OK with Cyndi Lauper's original solo. Plus, gotta love how Lil Wayne was fed through the Daft Punk machine.

Whatever. They got my $1.29 on iTunes. I am the children.

    Well. One cannot hope but remember the original performed by a stellar ensemble of musicians. I like very few of the musicians on this new version. Hence, this version will always pale in comparison to the original. Leaving Michael Jackson's solo bits in this song was a brilliant idea. Celine Dion's rendition of Cyndi Lauper's solo bit was also pretty damned good.

    I do love it when artists can come together and celebrate a fellow musician's life. This is amazing and full of love.
