* Bono & Chris Martin - What's Going On

Anybody heard this?
I don't really know when it happened or what it's about, but I think its much better than the duet with Alicia.

I actually think its about war or famine or something (obviously).

Interesting, I got it as part of a fruitleg and I thought it was quite cool, I didn't know if it was a big song or not you see.

The CD was a "single" and it had about 7 different versions on it. The one that was a release had all kinds of singers on it. This was one of the b-sides.

This version also features The Edge and Brian Eno playing the music, so it in a way could be considered a U2 recording, as there are U2 recordings without Adam and Larry.

It's actually the best out of all of Bono's celebrity floggings of "What's Going On" (which doesn't say much), since it "only" has two singers and the instrumentation sounds the most U2y. It's called the London Version, I think.

(Between this and "Across the Universe," I think Bono should start offering his own songs up for sacrifice whenever he feels a bunch of famous people need to get together and kill a good song for a good cause.)
