“We Are the World” 2010

Normally, I don’t post anything provided by the Associated Press, but this IS a charitable cause and it’s on The YouTubes (yeah, I call it that), so it stays until I receive a snippy “cease and desist” email. ANYWAY.

How do we feel about the remake of the classic, “We Are the World”? Jeff Bridges? I’m 100% positive he’s there because he’ll be getting an Oscar for Best Actor; why else would he be asked to participate?  Vince Vaughn? Really?

Lionel Richie and Quincy Jones had me puzzled there for a second.  They spoke about the 25th anniversary of “We Are the World”, but at one point, there wasn’t a reason to commemorate the date — OH, then HAITI happened! Lord, did you see Lionel’s face light up when they said that?  It made me squirm.  I’m sure they didn’t intend for their press conference to come off as self-serving, but it kinda did, huh?

Here’s the real “We Are the World”, recorded in 1985…with Michael Jackson.

Sometimes, the original should be left alone.

Please continue, though, with your support to the Red Cross for the Haitians who are still suffering.
