Celeb collab overload

I know they’re all for a good cause but with all these celebrity collaborations going on at the same time its getting kind of rediculous.  And why are they all remakes? I know that their are good song writers out there that could come up with something better than having Lil Wayne singing Bob Dylan’s part in We are the World.  For one he only sings with autotune.  Granted he may be incomprehensible like Dylan when singing like Bob Dylan, but Lil Wayne admitted not being able to sing.  And then Celine Dion trying a Cyndi Lauper part (again!). Remember the  I drive all night remake she did?  And its not like all the artists who are being replaced are dead.

There was the Grammy Michael Jackson Earth Song.

Everyone Hurts done for Haiti brought to you by Simon Cowell

And We are the World Michael Jackson remake for Haiti.  Think the remake will live up to this? And I’ve just heard Michael’s voice will be in it.

I’m glad Haiti and Michael Jackson have brought us together, but please stop thinking that celebrity get togethers are awesome just for the sake they have gotten together.  We are the World originally had a lot of thought put to it and it deserves the same amount of care.  Artists are not interchangeable.  They have unique voices.  I hope they adapt the song to them.  I love the idea and hope it works out.  Maybe these songs as remakes act as reminders to act in favor of helping others.

What do you think about this?

And we’ll find out Friday if We are the World’s good.  From the clips it does sound good.

Mash-ups and remixes are spectacularly crazy and much of the time people are doing them in their own homes and getting them out to the people via youtube.  Sometimes the remix is even better than the original.  It’s not just professional djs anymore not that the pros are slacking.  Here are some of my favs pros and not.

Robin Skouteris  Madonna VS Lady Gaga VS Pitbull, Robin Skouteris VS Nirvana, Cyndi Lauper VS Missy Elliott 

LMFAO  Love LockDown Remix, Shooting Star  I think both are better than the original

 

SoBraLiajdyjonkt Shakira/Ciara/Justin Timberlake/Lady Gaga/Pitbull

Justice  Electric Feel, Genesis

imbastardbob Wolf Game, Love is a Circus, I kissed a girl from miles away Sometimes Songs go with other music.

I have a few more I’m going to talk about soon.  Tell me what you think about these and name some of your favs.
