Quote:Does there really have to be a point, other than the sheer fun of doing something?

I love the one where a load of people turned into living statues in Grand Central for about 5 minutes.



I can imagine that would have been a bit unnerving for the ones who weren't in on it! Looked funny though!

Quote:Some of you guys on here are so cynical....


Cynical moi?

How could I possibly be cynical about a trashy pop R&B group (whilst calling themselves a Hip Hop group, when they retain nothing of the genre, and misrepresent it all over the world) who have pursued incessant licensing, seemingly without any creative conscience, selling their work to any corporation, game or film they can.

The music they create is inane, formulaic, simplistic and designed to simply be a money making vehicle.

The only amazing thing about them is the ability to take money from all the sheep; like the audience in the video who are too stupid to go and find some real music (of any genre including hip hop) that has real meaning and emotion rather than formulaic drivel with lyrics like "I've got that boom boom pow".

Think you should get off the fence and say what you really think Grin

Come on John, stop beating around the bush! Tongue

Anyway this wasn't about the Black Eyed Peas, rather the people who came together to do the dance.

This was an attempt to show how people can come together and do something extraordinary! It was not to ask if the music was good (I like it) or even if the dance was good (I thought it was superb). Only that 20,000 people got together and performed a dance together and shared a wonderful moment. The timing was superb and the surprise element, undeniable.

Goodness, I never realised this link could be so controversial! Sad

I think we could (and do) argue about anything these days.

It looked like a bit of good fun to me Smile

Hey, different opinions are the spice of life. What would this thread be otherwise? Everybody in the same box.

This is definitely one of those 'moments' that will probably be talked about for many years by those who were there to witness it - just like the O2 advert - and I for one would love to have been there. The point? Just sheer enjoyment, fun, exhilaration, the sense of being part of something huge that took a lot of planning to bring it off. That's enough point for me.

Oh dear how very silly - maybe its just me but surely that is the whole point of popular music - just like Pink Floyd, Greatful Dead, Beautiful South, Clash, Kings of Leon, Ramones, Fleet Foxes, Beach Boys and Leonard Cohen - all great and all equally life affirming in their own ways.

And of course all the above and pretty much every other band you can name have the ability to:

Some people are just not cynical enough to be honest, I mean how completely inocent to think first that 'real music' exists and second to actually believe it is performed for our benefit rather than to make money. Far too trusting Sir. Far too trusting...

I'm a sheep! Baaaaaaaaaa!. Smile I liked it. Paid 99p for the track. It's now sitting in between the Hurricane (Bob Dylan) and I'm In Love With My Car (Queen).
