Tsunami Aid Concert - Waters, Clapton, Madonna and others

Caught a little bit of the Tsunami Aid Concert last night. A worthy cause, no doubt.

Musically, it seemed to be a rather lackluster affair. The only real highlight seemed to be the Roger Waters and Eric Clapton duet on the Pink Floyd song "Wish You Were Here". An ironic selection, to say the least. Here's a video clip.

Madonna opened the program with John Lennon's "Imagine". One couldn't help but think about Neil Young's performance of "Imagine" for the 9/11 benefit. Oddly, Madonna's rendition didn't seem to be quite appropriate either for the cause. Or maybe it was just the way she sings....

I thought the same thing when watching/listening to Madonna do "Imagine". When Neil did it - it had real soul - real feeling - real emotion. Madonna's version was real flat.

Wow, I thought Madonna's version was really heartfelt and raw. Doesn't surprise me that Neil Young sounded more soulful to some as he is a very soulful singer. Kudos to Madonna for taking a risk and singing something with a positive message!

Nice post which he only real highlight seemed to be the Roger Waters and Eric Clapton duet on the Pink Floyd song. In which Madonna's rendition didn't seem to be quite appropriate either for the cause.Thanks a lot for posting this article.
