Was reading the New York Times article about the new version of "We Are The World" (to benefit Haiti, you know), when I remembered this other celebrity pastiche piece from the early 90's, "Voices that Care," which was made to support the troops during the first Gulf War--a simpler time in our nation's history when, if I recall correctly, they actually sold Operation Desert Storm trading cards (with gum and everything) at newsstands in my neighborhood. Laudably earnest sentiment of the song aside, you have to watch this video, because quite simply, it is awesome. The Nelson Brothers! Michael Bolton! Will Smith with a sideways baseball cap! Strange interlude in the middle with squiggly colored lines! Kenny G on his little weiner sax! FRED SAVAGE SINGING NEXT TO ALYSSA MILANO! Also, Dudley Moore for some reason. We're sending our love down the well (down that well)!
Awesome. I think I still have this cassingle in a shoebox somewhere at my parent's house. And so would you if you, like me, are a relic of an earlier time.
