Tsunami - the Musical

#1
Apologies for adding to the Grief Soup:

Singer Cliff Richard, pop star Boy George and other British music stars plan to release a song to raise money for victims of the devastating Asian tsunami, the song’s composer said. Mike Read wrote the song “Grief Never Grows Old” before the Boxing Day disaster but said he was now getting stars on board to release it within weeks to raise money for survivors of the tsunami, which killed more than 144,000 people by Monday’s count.

“We’ve tracked down quite a few people, who have said:’Yes I would love to do a few lines on it’,” Read told Sky News television. Read, a radio DJ, said Robin Gibb of Bee Gees fame was taking part as well as opera singer Russell Watson.

Richard said: “I have always felt that those of us that have these kind of careers, whether it be broadcasting or singing, acting, dancing, we are in an incredibly privileged group of people and it’s just nice to feel you can actually play a part.”

Charity singles have proved hugely popular fundraisers in Britain, where the reworked Band Aid 20 charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” featuring Dido, Jamelia and other stars, spent several weeks at the top of the charts. The single was knocked off the top spot on Sunday by “Against All Odds” from Steve Brookstein after the winner of talent show “The X factor” pledged all proceeds from his debut single would go to victims of the tsunami. reuters
Mike Read? Robin Gibb? Boy George? Cliff Richard? Virtually the entire population of the world is weeping into its collective sleeve - and now we're going to inflict this dreadful aberation on them as well?

WTF Can't Cliff just put his hand in his pocket and throw some money in the bucket like everybody else?

I am glad that no one is using this disaster for cheap publicity still perhaps it could be played during the 12 hour silence we are going to have every week in remembrance.

I for one am going into a self imposed exile. I will go to my room, watch porn vids and w@nk myself to death. Its better than listening to those tossers sing shiit :roll:

And if Mike Reads current track record accounts for music as it did theatre, boy are we in for some dross :roll:

Something was washed up by a recent wave, had to be Mike Read, cos no-one else would want to dig THAT up, crap DJ, crap taste and I love myself attitude. He's the original, "I am looking for something, like a lost ego, and I have not heard my voice on radio or seen my oversized jowels on tele for many years" Thank god say the public!
Whatever droning he has written will sadly be broadcast over the coming months. Anyone who has not got a pair of pink fluffy earmuffs needs to invest in some, hasta pronto!
You know they will suit you anyhow (you know who you are) :wink:
