Oh, no. Not that song again. 

Yes, the cream of Britain's pop acts, and The Sugababes have gathered to re-record "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

I just heard it on the news, and it's crap. Twenty years on, and it's worse than the original.

I can't find a link, but, according to The Scum Sun, there was a row about who should sing Bono's line:

"Well tonight, thank God it's them, instead of you"

Apparently that bloke from The Darkness recorded it, and sung it so well that Bono's "people" weren't happy. The new recording now features Bono. And I can tell you, if the guy wanted to kill his career, he couldn't have done a better job. His voice is so much weaker than it was twenty years ago. Well, of course, that's to be expected, but the fact that he sung the line is highlighting this.

Celebs and their egos...

Oh, and it seems Madonna "was involved", although she doesn't appear in any of the publicity photos.

Celebs and their egos.

Get over yourselves, it's for Charity.
