What an absolute pile of shite. What the fuck is the rapping all about?? Bob Geldof has made a HUGE mistake, I can understand why he is trying to raise the cash and its for a superb cause, but to wreck a song such as DTKIC, im appauled. There are even radio stations in the Uk that are urging people to go out and buy it because its for a good cause, but they are refusing to play it! Bono has yet again made a twat out of himself because after spitting his dummy out over 'his' line, hes re recorded it and it sounds wank.

Im VERY dissapointed. Pete Waterman did a better job in 1989 with Band Aid 2.

I could'nt agree more BMW. I've just watched the video and I was gobsmacked. If that is the best of the pop world at the moment, then Brian or Roger should release something soon, it would have no problem going to no1. And that guitar solo..no, that was wrong. And that girl band, they were bad, I thought they needed a rocket up their arses, to try to put some life into them. I'd rather put my couple of quid in a bucket than buy that.

What a shame.

Aaarrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhh! My ears!!!

Why is the music mixed so loud it drowns out the vocals ... would it make any difference?

What a total and unmitigated pile of shite! Proof, if it were needed after Band Aid II, that you can't beat the original.


Yes, it's me. I'm back.



I haven't lost my mind, it's backed up on a disk somewhere

From reading about who would be doing what on this song, I was expecting it to turn out to be a real dogs breakfast. Though I haven't heard it yet, it appears from your reactions that this is waht has happened. (I mean really, can a Dizzee Rascal Rap really sit alongside a Justin Hawkins Guitar solo and Dido's crooning? Probably not).

Saw the video on the beeb earlier. What a pile of arse. It doesn't seem to mesh together as a song, if that makes any sense. It's sort of...discombobulated

Thsi is is really rubish, well not that bad really. What I dnt get is ehy theyv used footage from the original farmin film from 1984 and put in the new video. Yes people are dying but that case was 20 years ago, if you want to raise money for this use up to date footage of the fammine not thats past. But any Im glad bob geldof has made an appearance I mean it cant be made to sound like the original, this one is more of a softer version.

The reason why they showed a clip from 1984 is because one of the survivors from that clip, a young girl, appears in the new video. Its to show how our charitable deeds in the past and in the future has helped these people in their daily plight.

Its utter shite isn't it?

I'm not buying it. Stuff for a good cause - I donated £20 to the live aid fund earlier today and bought the dvd on day of release - that'll do for me.

www.liveaid.com/donation.html is the link I believe - just go there and give em the price of the cd or something if you feel guilty about not buying it

Sorry - scratch that. This place is so annoying without an 'edit post' option!

It was a shite song last time, it'll be a shite song this time. I don't hold out a lot of hope for hearing it here though and I don't really care. I'm sure there are more ear-friendly ways of raising money for charity.

(And there is an edit post option, it's right by the date and time your post was made)

I kind of liked it.

Not as good as the original, but not nearly as bad as this thread makes it sound.

Well, I thought it was pretty lame.

Mind you, it was lame last time as well, but to be honest, they've picked some right muppets to sing on it. I mean, seriously, how can the Sugababes add anything to anything? They should be taken out and shot at dawn for a start, not least for looking so bored.

Dizzee Rascal???!!!!! Now, I'm all for a bit of ghetto fabulous bling, but for fuck sake, it doesn't even begin to fit on this single. In general, it's a good job they're doing it for such a good cause, because it'd do fuck-all business otherwise.

Oh, and slow motion video of dying children? Please, spare us. It's a bit Do-Ro, wouldn't you say? We know what it's about, don't remind us.
