"We Are The World" redux? 

Quincy Jones is apparently organizing a sequel, or perhaps a remake, of "We Are The World," which, being a sentimentalist and a romantic, actually moved me twenty-five years ago. I remember seeing it for the first time as though it were yesterday.

I love the cuts with Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, and Ray Charles in particular, especially the mini duet between Bruce and Stevie. Great stuff.

Who do you want to see in the sequel? Who do you predict will be? Post your nominees in the comments.

OK, probably a chick pick, but Dave Matthews.

I have the song on my iPod, and I like listening while reading a list of who is singing which lines: http://www.inthe80s.com/weworld.shtml (scroll down). It hadn't occurred to me to watch the video -- I never really got into MTV. Thanks for posting it.

Did we ever get a financial report on the first performance? What happened to the revenue produced over the years? Where there "administrative" costs or "promotional" fees deducted over the years?

A George W Bush and Kanye West duet.

Hall & Oates, because they are gods and never age.

Possibly Paul Weller.

And most definitely, Miguel Migs spinning mad house music. All the acts they have on are seriously depressing.
