18-11-2004 10:52Stations are banning it from their airwaves because its "Rubbish". Paul McCartney was so exhausted after recording his bit that he collapsed on the floor. The original cover was banned by record execs because it might frighten small children.
And what's worse, the lyrics have come in for major criticism... While no one is criticising the basic good intention, what might have been waking the world up 20 years ago to the issues of poverty and famine and fundraising, is no longer sufficient in todays world.
