When listening again to the classic We Are The World, i couldn’t help but think what a great song it is. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie and became the fastest selling American pop song single ever.
Some notes on the song:
- Michael Jackson pretty much wrote the entire song himself. Sure, Lionel was there but it’s mostly MJ’s work.
- All the musician came from the American Music Awards. All came in limousines except Bruce Springsteen who drove a pickup truck and parked it outside and paid for meter parking
- There was a big sign listed above the studio with the words, “Leave your ego at the door.”
- Prince bailed at the last minute because the organizer called him a creep (guess he didn’t see the sign)
ANyway, a good song to go back to and check out
