Sorry but

………Isn’t the new version of Band Aid crap?

Ok, it starts off alright with Chris Martin and Dido but then you want to hear Simon Le Bon singing it’s hard, but when you’re having fun…. don’t you?

And although Bono gets to sing ‘his bit’, the embarassingly crass lyric, “well tonight thank God it’s them instead of you” (I would have thought it was especially embarassing for a believer) somehow it sounds worse in this version.

And that bit of rapping from Dizzee Rascal?

And why weren’t the Cheeky Girls invited?

Anyway if you have been scratching your head trying to remember who sang which bit in the original (and the 1989 version) , then this wikipedia page tells you that and lots more

This site, for some wonderful reason, also has all the additional voice messages from the 12″ version.

Hello, hello, this is Paul McCartney. Feed the world…
Hello, this is Paul McCartney. Hello, this is Paul McCartney.
Feed the world… Sorry, I can’t be with you…

Update: You can watch the whole video on the official Band Aid site.
