... another day closer to eternity

Tuesday, November 16, 2004

Blah, blah, blah

"America had often been discovered before Columbus,but it had
always been hushed up.

Jet Blast ~ The same effect can happen from eating too many beans.

Bouncy Titanic ~ Watch out for sharp ice cubes.

The new Band Aid - Do they know it's Christmas? song is out today. It got played for the first time at 8am. It is to mark 20 years since the first one and has some new 'stars' in the line up. The songs starts off OK with Chris Martin of Coldplay singing first lines, Dido chips in next but when it comes to Bono's line 'Tonight thank God it's them instead of you', which he sings with such feeling on the original, I must report that 20 years on, old Bono doesn't come up to scratch. It may be he was told to tone it down to fit in with the more 'pop' style of this version but I can't help thinking that the old boy has lost the 'edge'. After that it is downhill with a rap (of all things) by Dizzy Rascal, a British rapper (more likely to be involved in drive-by slappings than shootings). The rap is segwayed in between original lines and sounds as bad as you think. The chorus then chimes in with 90 odd pretentious wannabees warbling over a Darkness schreeching guitar. The least said about the end the better. It just peters out to a clanging crashing noise which reminded me of a class of 6 year olds hitting anything they can get their hands on. In a word, disappointing.
