We Are the World: New vs Old

[ 2 ] February 13, 2010 |

Here’s the old version:

Here’s the new:

My thoughts:

I was with them until they busted out with the Auto-Tune, Wyclef’s howling and Jamie Foxx’s Ray Charles impression. I wasn’t mad at the rap segment. I got that. It was very 2010.

What did you think? Is Michael Jackson turning in his grave or Moon Walking in heaven?

    Lionel Richie said it best “… Wow!?”

    Look hip-hop should stay as far away from “we are the world” as possible. It just doesn’t fit in with the rest of the song. There was a reason why Run DMC and Beastie Boys weren’t on the first one. Hip-Hop isn’t sympathetic, its aggressive and selfish. The total opposite of what We Are World is. smh. Damn you autotune have you not killed enough careers, you had to take We Are the World as well…?
