80's Has-Beens Jump on Global Warming Celebrity Train by Christian Toto 15 Sep 2009 post a comment Share This: A gaggle of concerned musicians has banded together to warn the world about global warming. Huh? Is the world getting warmer? I had no idea. You would think the media, or the movie industry or any other information outlet for that matter would have told us about it by now. Thank goodness Duran Duran and the Scorpions are here to set the record straight. Yes, those '80s rockers, along with actress and certified Truther Marion Cotillard, Youssou N'dour, Bob Geldorf, Khalil Fong and South African archbishop Desmond Tutu have cut a new tune available for free soon. Actually, it's not a new song. It's "Beds'r Burning" originally recorded by Midnight Oil two decades ago. It's hard to decide what's more pathetic - a bunch of fading rockers trying to jump on the charity bandwagon, or the fact that after countless movies/books/news reports regarding global warming these warblers think their song will finally open our eyes to the problem.
