I SAW THE VIDEO FOR "WHAT'S GOIN ON"

studio footage, mixed with the scenes from the site, and the images of relatives.

and YES, Bono shots too. he wears the same military hat he had when he sang "Redemption song" with Wyclef for Mandela. i think he wore it also when he spoke at Harvard.

i missed his part (aaaargh!), but there are some very nice shots of him hugging a rapper, and grooving to the song + raising his hand, making a fist. and, the final shot belongs to him. he saluts to the camera.

i didn't mind the rappers as much as other on this forum. to me, it really looks like everyone pitched in and gave their best for charity.

For some reason I only really liked the first part of the song. I thought the segue way between Bono and Gwen sounded the best from there it was only downhill.

I agree Socalu2fan I only like the the beginning the the song also. Too much rap in the rest of it.

Mysterious_Ways, you were so lucky!

I really can't stand the way the song sounds, but I love Bono's parts and it is for a good cause. I think Bono realizes it's a song with limited appeal the way it is now and that's why they are working on two other versions of it.

I like the song and the video.
I especially like the beginning, Bono and Gwen voice's complement very well...I love to hear a duet with those two.
The rap didn't bother me either and I usually don't care for rap.

Nicamom,

Thats what I noticed too. Gwen and Bono go very well together. Of course maybe we are partial to her seeing as we are both OC residents!

LOL socalu2fan, we should ask impartial parties.
But I think that's probably the reason she follows Bono in the song.
