Bad Cover Version

I was thinking about writing something about my complicated feelings re: Bob Geldof- and I do have them, and then started watching old timey Christmas videos on You Tube. (For fans of the original Band Aid song (or those nostalgic for 80's greats like Paul Young and all that great, impossible hair sported by men and women alike, the video is a must see now and then.) This led me to this great Pulp video "Bad cover version (of love)" which spoofs charity music (and makes a clever point about its own message by using celebrity impersonators. It's so good and bad that your head will spin. Liam Gallagher, Bjork, Tom Jones... and Jarvis Cocker as Brian May from Queen at then end.
