Dave Grohl lol
ON FIRE http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/music/4454692
Enjoyed playing the 'oh, I'd forgotten about [pop star much hyped 3 or 4 years ago]' game.
what was that
why do they always have a shitty opera singer in it
It is something wrong? Maybe they couldn't be there, but don't blame on One Direction, there was Lorde too, and some people doesn't like that much Lorde. My point is; Don't hate on them, because they're also very talented, and not only because they're meant for a young crowd, it means they're shit music.
needs to be butchered and butchered now.
mike diver and all the staff writers?
I like the thought that they wanted him in for his hipness, but acknowledged that he cannot fucking sing at all. 'yeah just do some 'la-la's for us, cheers mate'
Buggy Bugg and the Buggy Bunch
and thought Brian May improved it
then it's amps every time.
until zane lowe, and then all the things that came after
just like Perfect Day, the BBC have improved on the original
you have to want to hate it
I think you can hate it if you try a bit harder
including Morrissey, Thom Yorke & David Lynch
thougt it was a very odd choice of song to play.
Makes sense now.
Good stuff, they should do more. Each one is 10/10
He looked like he knew what he was doing.
someone's obviously been to see Haiku Salut, haven't they?
It has relatively high production values, but I mean in terms of paying all the artists (assuming they'd all want a fee)?
There are some bigger hitters in there - Elton John, Kylie, One Direction etc - who I imagine don't come cheap.
They must be fucking laughing all the way to the bank! Most of them are in it for less than five seconds, and in the case of Jools Holland for example, he didn't even need to record any singing, he just pretends to hit one key on the piano and lifts his hand in the air.
It does have one upside though - it's a strong argument in favour of privatising the BBC.
and if they did it'd probably just be a nominal one, because BBC is so well respected because the way it's funded.
for Children in Need: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-439875/Wogan-celeb-paid-Children-In-Need.html
still don't know who they are, losers.
In some cases (particularly the newer, 'current' artists) i've no doubt they might have done it for the promo, but the likes of Elton John don't need it. It won't enhance his credibility or 'awareness' of him in any way. He probably doesn't need the money either, but that's a separate issue.
I checked with him.
it's all part of maintaining the brand (and the income).
but for this, there's no way they did it for a nominal fee or for free. Except for Paloma Faith obviously.
in the time it took you to write that, you could have come up with a new name for ol' Bugg Boots.
for favourable coverage and more airtime for artists on their many radio channels.
but it's irrelevant as the media value is fucking huge. There was probably a serious scrum of PR teams trying to get their artists involved.
...then it's probably all covered by Gift Aid and investment interest from the previous year's campaign, meaning not a penny of the license fee was actually spent on it.
How many charity telethons do our commercial broadcasting friends do these days exactly?
We'd be in control of the whole world within days.
is this like the perfect day cover from 1998 or whatever?
except without heather small
was funny when shane macgowan turned up after all the nicely dressed people
Good ad for the bbc though: You get #diverse programming (cultural classical stuff mixed with nature and urban) and #REALcelebs, not #celebs like big brother stars and that
Weirdly the only person who sounded vaguely alright (other than poor old Brian) was Jamie Cullum.
Clearly just lifted from the original.
tbf to the lad he nailed his line.
Grohl as god too, great stuff.
Actually, I think I'm starting to like this now.
Although this could have done with a kind of weirdly added Dizzee Rascal rap, definitely.
the best bit is Daniel Bedingfield proper going for it
by some mainland European TV channel featuring Columbo & Carlton and other late 80s / 90s icons doing a similar cover thing green screened on a beach, all swaying gently while singing their bit of the song?
Had to leave the office when John Nettles popped up.
for this one on CD for christmas, even though she wont know them all!
it's dead poignant when brian wilson does his bits. who#s the fucking nugget on the ladder though, he pissed me right off.
anyway, it's a very impressive waste of money. i give it a thumbs up, especially when compared to the bbc staff cover of happy, which made me want to stab the entire planet.
... oh no you're right; it's the Guardian.
like "here's a little treat for you, our beloved viewers".
Not seen it like.
But remember that awful overlong xmas ident thing where they all sang "consider yerself" and it was AWFUL. Same thing.
Anyway that was shit.
loan this to John Lewis to use for their Christmas ad this year or something.
so i am going to review just the video:
it's fucking shite!
so a thumbs up from me.
