"Let them know that Canada still cares"

"Joni Mitchell later spoke to writer Iain Blair about the recording experience: "I know it sounds ridiculous, but I was literally starving when we did the session 'cause my yoga teacher had sent me to a psychic dietician who, while rubbing her chin and swinging her arm around in a circle, had diagnosed a lot of food allergies. The result was, predictably, that I was hardly allowed to eat anything, so by the time I arrived with an apple and a rice patty, my poor stomach was making all these strange noises. Then we get in the studio, and the engineer says he can't record 'cause he's picking up some weird rumbling sound coming from my direction. (She laughed.) And it was all pretty ironic, considering the subject matter!" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tears_Are_Not_Enough

With the return of Band Aid here is the Canadian 1985 song which unaccountably makes me tear up a bit. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fsWGfQC3jMs

I have mentioned this before, and at the time I expect I mentioned this. Not a parody of anything at all, I'm sure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enH2igVo55U

The film doesn't quite work IMO though normally it is the sort of thing crass enough for me to like.
