I wonder if any one can help me.

I am very interested in getting hold of a list of the singers that sang on the above named.

Any suggestions where I can get hold of this information. Thanks.

I quite like it in fact-Cyndi Lauper, Bruce Spingsteen, Bob Dylan sound great on it imho.

I'm sure there must be far worst charity records made.

NB-Reason for posting original thread-my ten year niece recently heard this record on the radio in Australia and started asking her parents questions about it. Her dad told her to ask "Uncle Mark he'll know"-sadly I didn't hence asking you guys. Thanks for getting me out of a hole. I've sent my niece the details provided-thanks again.

It looks to me like Google came to the rescue of these lovely people.

Any carrots going free?

The thing I remember about this song was that when they recorded it all the stars pulled up in limos to the studio, each limo longer than the last. Then they consumed huge amounts of champagne and caviar in the studios whilst waiting to do their line in the song and then back into their limos again.

I've always liked "We Are The World (War Is Over)". It's a nice hum-along song.

If I knew what that meant I might agree with the statement - or even disagree with it!!! We'll never know.

"Soliptimisticalisation................." Hmmmmph.....
