Many other people have pointed out quite well (but apparently not on this website, iTunes maybe?) that this song does not work on any level. Beds Are Burning is a song about Aboriginal rights. Making it into a song about climate change dillutes the original message and doesn't even carry the new intended message clearly or well. They should have written a whole new song instead of trying to ride the coattails of the classic Midnight Oil song. On top of that, what is the deal with the performance? Were they trying to put together a song that is just plain awful? I don't think they could have made it much worse. There is nothing cohesive about it. I had to force myself to keep listening just to finish this song, and even then it took two tries. It really sounds awful. The only good thing I get from this song is a strong desire to go listen to Diesel and Dust again. And that is what I recommend to everyone else, if you want to hear Beds Are Burning, listen to the original version, not this atrocity.

If you want to fight climate change, do something proactive.

This jaw-droppingly bad mangling of the old Midnight Oil hit doesn't have a trace of irony to it, yet it only makes me want to laugh. With so many voices jumping in and out (and changing the lyrics while they're at it) it sounds too close to "We Are The World" for comfort.

The sound samples emphasizing the importance of the Copenhagen summit help it bring home the bronze toilet.

It's free because no one in their right mind would pay for this.

I say this as a fan of Midnight Oil, as a fan of music, and as a citizen concerned for our environment: DO NOT BOTHER.

Wow! I think this goes down as one of the worst songs I've ever heard. This song is not worth the price (which is free).

Now I know what happens to all the terrible singers who get rejected from American Idol. They make "pro-earth" cult songs!

This gives me the CREEPS...besides being an ear-piercing shrill of aluminum-foil-biting skull pain, this makes me want to meet a rabid pitbull with AIDS in a dark alley...one with genetically-mutated DNA so he has thumbs and can operate a bazooka (and has one pointed at me) rather than hear this song even once until the day I die. I fear any whacko Ted Kazynski Unabomber martyr-wanna-be who hears this song. It is akin to Charles Bronson's TELEFON. I think it "activates" the veggiewhackos the same way "...miles to go before I sleep..." did in TELEFON. SOON...

I think this song was produced as a conspiracy to sell Tylenol and Pepto-Bismol. You'll need both, as well as some ear-bleach to get this terrible Yoko-Ono style shrieking crap out of your head.

I cant wait until the "We didnt land on the moon" crowd gets a copy of this for their backwards-playing music software.

I'm going back to /b/ to watch over 9000 disgusting picture posts just to get this out of my head, even if for a moment.

I like new versions of my favorite songs, usually. This is one of those where I hated it every second of it. Midnight Oil is a band that has been ALL OVER topics such as human rights and the environment for years. Check out their cds, every of them is a gem. Sung from the heart with passion. This is, however, is not.
