This song helped me through a bad time - the video makes you realise there are more troubled people than you think.
Nottingham 1993, a court case that could have meant a couple of years locked up, all 'cos we tried to stop the South Africans playing rugby. Myself and 3 friends were in a pub in the middle of the city, drinking, playing pool and this song came on the juke box. We sang so loud, so strong, our lungs nearly burst and even when the landlord turned it off we carried on.
You see, it's songs like this that give you hope and make you want to live and make you think that the wonderful man who wrote it, wrote it for that specific time and place. Dumb I know, but Michael Stipe is a beautiful man in more ways than one and if he had only written this one song he would be just as revered as he is for writing all the songs he has.
I wish Simon Cowell had left it alone though...
The people of Haiti
Beautiful, and the cover isn't about Simon cowell fool it's about a people in need rite now.
