OK, Am I The Only One...

...who's getting really pissed off with the new Band Aid single? Don't get me wrong: I support the cause. But it just feels like cheating to recycle a song which was very much of the moment. And am I the only one who remembers they pulled the recycling stunt in 1989 as well? (Sonia was heavily involved if memory serves).

    Hey, why not pop down to the Poundstretcher in Kingswood, Bristol, and listen to their piped selection of Christmas classics covered by unknown artists (evidently to save money on royalties so that we can continue to enjoy the mighty savings available in this fine shop). That version of Do They Know It's Christmas really puts the whole new Band Aid thing in perspective.

    PS Why is everyone making such a big song and dance about the face that it's got to number 1 in its first week? Everything gets to number 1 in its first week these days, surely, particularly if it's by the Sugababes, Robbie Williams or any of the other heavily marketed pop sensations involved in BA20. Besides, it's only sold 300,000 copies or something - it's not like you actually have to sell many records to get to number 1 nowadays.
