As I have said in my facebook page, I have never been a fan of this song.

I love the original version. The new one sucks. You can't touch the artists in the original.

I have a soft spot for the original, but this is just crap.

I know it's for a great cause, but to steal a line from somewhere else on the internet ...

Hasn't Haiti suffered enough?

The worst part for me was the seconds surrounding and including Lil Wayne...makes hip-hop look like bullshit.

And what the fuck was Jeff Bridges doing in the middle of all that?

I don't get what all the hype was about regarding this remake. I'm still wondering why they alll are so proud of it other than they "donated" some of their time to get their name on a project thinkinging it'll go down in history. And the ending with Will I Am? WTF is that all about? I'd be happy never ever hearing it again. I say long live the original We Are The World!!

is that a boy or a girl who first starts singing? that's atrocious.

20 seconds was enough to turn it off.

my god.

i mean, i know every decade has had it's bad music, but it just seems like in this decade (well, last, now) some really, really shitty music and "musicians" have become very popular and well loved.

like that Fireflies song.

Gah! All they're doing is creating a pat-on-the-back moment for themselves with that video, and unfortunately competition for the Hope For Haiti album already out (that was filled with much more heart-on-your-sleeve performance than I saw in this particular video), Clooney should have some TV spots up to get people to continue to buy that, initial support is great, but there are still lots of people languishing in precarious situations.
