Playing for Change: Stand By Me


[We Are The World v2.0] I get teary everytime I watch this beautiful video. I posted it last week but stupidly linked it to one of Utah's asswipe politicians, thereby probably causing a lot of folks to ignore it. Take a look; you'll be moved.

  1. Wow, that's a great project! It took me a minute to realize that the vocals (and even some of the instrumental tracks) are all field recordings. It's mind-blowing, really--there must have been some pitch correction in the mixdown, but it's deftly handled, and the performances are kept front-and-center with little intrusion from the engineers.

    "Playing for Change" could be the "Deep Forest" of the 2000s.
