What's going on?

Just read this. I think the original idea was great, but why would anyone want 9 different mixes of the same song? I thought 5 was pushing it a bit.

October 23, 2001
From Billboard:

Star-Studded 'What's Going On' Disc Due

A disc of wide-ranging mixes and remixes of the all-star
recording of Marvin Gaye's classic single "What's Going
On" will be released Oct. 30 via Columbia. Originally
planned for release tomorrow (Oct. 23) with five mixes,
the final set features nine different mixes of the song by
Jermaine Dupri, Brian Eno, Moby, Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst,
the Neptunes, Junior Vasquez, Mike Mangini, and Mick
Guzauski.
***********************8

I was going to buy it with 5 mixes since it's for a couple good causes, but now I wonder how much it's going to cost. That's practically a whole album of just one song!

Weird

I've already heard the London mix with eno, Bono, Edge, Coldplay guitarist....much more soothing and flowing than the main mix!

With 9 mixes of one song, maybe they should call it "What's going on, and on, and on, and on, and on...."

I am sorry but the radio/mtv version plain sucks.

I don't see any point in not doing 9 remixes. Hopefully one will be listenable.. unlike the radio version. They will all be quite different styles and appeal to different people. I personally find different interpretations of the same song very interesting, so I have no problem with their being 9 different versions.. espeically if Moby and Brian Eno are involved.
