...5 hours later and nobody has yet commented... So what does everybody think of the song then ? Forgetting the fact that it is for a good cause, what do you think of the song ? When the line-up was announced I was initially excited by the prospect of hearing the latest artists performing this classic song, one that instantly reminds me of Christmas and always gets the hairs standing up on the back of my neck (and again, before anyone tries to tell me that it is the cause we should remember and not the song, I am well aware of why it was done - the original song was all the more haunting for it). What have they done... . It sounds like the they have recorded at the local Nursery School... when the teacher was out... ...and as for the Darkness wailing all over the end with big screechy guitars - what's all that about. They could have done an excellent version with the talent available but this seems to be a complete mish mash - it's all over the place. They could have updated a classic, paying homage to the original, but I for one am very disappointed by what they have done - it seems rushed... Not a song the artists will be proud of I'm sure. We all hope it earns millions, but a better effort all round could have been made. It may appeal to 'the kids' (God I sound old), but for those of an age, who were in their teens when the original came out, this seems to blur the memory of an old worn favourite - sorry to say.
