This song is dumb. I mean downright dumb. Listen to the lyrics and the horrible things that they say about Africa. I know… I know… they meant Ethiopia, but they didn’t say Ethiopia, they said Africa.
“There’s a world outside your window, and it’s a world of dread and fear
Where a kiss of love can kill you, and there’s death in every tear
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging chimes of doom”
Okay… even if they’re just talking about one specific region… ouch people!
They also say that no rain or rivers flowing… okay this is a classic case of some well-meaning elitists coming off as horribly racist and just… well ignorant.
That being said… I like this song. I like the tune, I like the talent behind it and its still a pleasant melody.
When to listen: Brainstorming, just don’t listen to the lyrics for the love of God.
