    Yesterday something reminded me of the song We are the World done to raise funds for African relief. At the time it was a very inspiring song and neat that so many very different artists got together and worked in the same studio, but I have to admit it seemed a bit of a weird show watching some of them too, right there in direct contrast to the others.

    Anyway got the song in my head and the only cure when that happens for me is to listen to it, and YouTube was there to help me out of course. Well if like me you were a bit amused to watch the video then, you have to see it again now. I just about laughed myself silly.



    Hard to believe that was 23 years ago! [​IMG] Makes me feel [​IMG]

    Interesting too how those were the top artists of the day and some of them are still around, some are so long gone I had to look the song up in Wikipedia to figure out who they were.

    I still like the song though, and what it accomplished.

    I just read something about this today at Ember's.
    They have little "remember the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's" papers at each table. I read them ALL and remembered everything from the 90's, 80's, and 70's. Heck I even knew some of the 60's and 50's stuff--and I wasn't even born then.
    They actually had some pretty interesting stuff on there.

    I do remember We Are The World.

    Here let me help you out with that.... [​IMG]

    There comes a time
    When we head a certain call
    When the world must come together as one
    There are people dying
    And it's time to lend a hand to life
    The greatest gift of all

    We can't go on
    Pretneding day by day
    That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
    We are all a part of
    God's great big family
    And the truth, you know love is all we need

    [Chorus]
    We are the world
    We are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    So let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me

    Send them your heart
    So they'll know that someone cares
    And their lives will be stronger and free
    As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
    So we all must lend a helping hand

    [Chorus]
    We are the world
    We are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    So let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me

    When you're down and out
    There seems no hope at all
    But if you just believe
    There's no way we can fall
    Well, well, well, well, let us realize
    That a change will only come
    When we stand together as one

    [Chorus]
    We are the world
    We are the children
    We are the ones who make a brighter day
    So let's start giving
    There's a choice we're making
    We're saving our own lives
    It's true we'll make a better day
    Just you and me

    [​IMG] Oh just watch the video a few times, it works for me, gets it right back out of my head.

    Or gather up someone too young to have been there then, have them watch it with you and then try explaining it to them, that will cure you!
