that charity single is an REM cover then is it?
This week our thoughts are with Michael Stipe and the REM boys. Imagine, Simon Cowell wants to do a charity cover for Haiti. You've just heard Journey say they turned the Cowell treatment down because he wanted to take out the things they thought made the song good. And then you get this media report, "Cheryl Cole was close to tears as she heard Simon Cowell's Haiti song for the first time."
Does that mean this new charity single is a cover of Everybody Hurts then? I know it's for charity and all, but that doesn't excuse everything. If you want to help, don't buy the record, just give the money you would have spent on the record instead, please.
Hope those are charities that know how to get the aid through, there's a whole lot of corruption about.
