Band Aid 20... [Nov. 20th, 2004|09:06 am]

What a mess!!!

Just listened to it for the first time (thanks to alfabettezoupe), and to be quite honest, I'm ashamed that the British music industry can produce such an amazing 5 minutes of utter crap.

There is no structure to the track, it just seems as though it was a free-for-all!
You can't actually hear most of the singing, because of the mis-mixed music.
Coldplay's influence over the track has turned it from an inspiring song of hope, into a very effective argument for self-termination!

Ok, I'll admit that the original wasn't exactly a musical masterpiece, but it was good.  And the less said about Pete Waterman's attempt in 1989, the better.

I thought it was ok till I heard the end with about 4 different guitars playing what sounded like 4 different tunes!

I saw it on TOTP Saturday this morning and I thought "hey, it's quite good" until some guy started to rap and it went oh so wrong after that and Jacob started crying. *laughs*

There seems to have been a huge fuss about this in the UK. Any particular reason why?

i thought it would be interesting to slip that one in as everyone has heard about the production but not a lot of people have heard the song!

there are some parts where i want it desperately to stay as such because it's good, but it sways into mediocre and pure crap much too often :)

Bit late I know... but my advice (Taken from a friend) is buy the single (Dizzy Rascal and all :-)) and then give it back... and then point out you're returning it cos it's crap... let them re-sell it... next time, hopefully they'll get it right :-)
