    NEW We Are the World

    Did anyone see the new We Are the World that premiered on the Olympics?

    I didn't like it at first but I warmed up to it by the end.

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    It was nice. I don't have any connection to the original as, at the time of its release, my parents hadn't even met yet.

    I would have warmed up to it a whole lot quicker if it hadn't opened with Justin Bieber... I'm not usually one to be a "h8er" but that Justin Bieber rubs me the wrong way. I got a music video of his because it was free on iTunes but now I feel like I was ripped off.

    I'm always surprised by what a great voice Pink has. (Also it was nice that they worked MJ back in)

    Haven't seen it yet. I'm not an Olympics/sports fan. I'll almost likely get it on CD or iTunes tho' whenever it comes out.

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    God knows why Justin Bieber, Miley, and the Jonas brothers are in there..... None of them can sing, especially Justin. But atleast we had good singers in there like Celine, Pink, Fergie, and a few others

    I WOULd buy it if it was without Justin miley and Jonas

    I noticed there weren't just singers in there. Vince Vaughn and Jeff Bridges were present. Why on Earth Miley was there I'll never know.

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    It really really sucked. Very disappointing
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    It SUCKED ... I didn't even recognize half of the people in there.

    And the song is a bout HELPING HAITI ... yet they managed to throw in yet ANOTHER Michael Jackson tribute in there. IT'S NOT ABOUT HIM!!!! Also, was Janet too good to show up? It was OBVIOUS she wasn't there.

    I would donate $2 just to not have to hear that song again.

    As for the actors, there were actors at the original one, so I'm okay with that. But I recognized EVERYBODY at the original one.

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    I recognized a great deal of the people there, but I didn't like seeing the little kid in the beginning of it (who the heck is he?!) and I wanted to hear Vince sing (glutton for punishment maybe.). I was also bugged by Michael Jackson being in it. He's dead, move on. And the grammar/rhyme scheme bugged me.

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    We Are the World is more associated with Michael Jackson than with any of the other artists. They sang it at his memorial less than a year ago. It made absaloute sense to put him in there. I am surprised that no one else from thge original was in the remake. Even Lionel didn't do any singing he just stood there being Celine Dion's 3rd base coach.

    As for not recognizing the artists, I din't recognize a lot of theme either...but I'm older than I was in 1985 and I listen to much less popular music. If I wasn't on these boards I don't think I would know what Miley Cirus looks like. Plus, music these days has far fewer crossover icons. It seems music today is very niche marketed and artists are big in their niche and not beyond it. So it's harder to round up a group of juggernauts like they did in 85.

    Thant being said, I'm not crazy about the song but it has it's moments...Pink, Celine, Josh Groban, and I even thought Miley handled herself quite well...too bad I know all her haters will still give her crap about it.

    It was really bad. I didn't like the original either, but they somehow managed to make it worse.

    Re: NEW We Are the World

    When they ran the long version tonight, it finally hit me what bugs me so much about it. The singers are acting like it's some sort of competition. The oversinging and emoting is just crazy. That first kid (a Jonas?) has an irritating style, really whiny. And nearly all of the lead singers felt compelled to over-do to a annoying degree. I never saw any such overwrought emoting in the original video. It really bothers me.

    That first kid is apparently named Justin Bieber...and it annoyed the CRAP out of me that he was READING THE LYRICS?! Are you kidding me?! That's like not knowing the words to Jingle Bells!
