BBC Radio 2 are not the first BBC station to unite some of music's biggest names this year for charity. BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge Allstars featuring Dua Lipa, Chris Martin and Rita Ora took a cover of Foo Fighters' Times Like These all the way to Number 1 in May, with proceeds split between Comic Relief and Children in Need. Paloma Faith and Jess Glynne are the only acts to be part of both line-ups.

Head of Music at BBC Radio 2 Jeff Smith curated the allstar line-up, with vocal contributions coming in from across the world, including from Cher in Malibu, Robbie Williams in Switzerland, and Yola in Nashville.

The reimagined Stop Crying Your Heart Out was produced by Mark Taylor and Brian Rawling who have produced chart-topping hits for the likes of Cher, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Lionel Richie, and Britney Spears. The song's visual was directed by Phill Deacon who produced the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge Allstars video.

Yawn yet again a load of stars doing a cover version as opposed to actually contributing to making a phenomenal track, disappointing as ever with all that talent and they can't even produce a new song.

OR, A group of busy people giving there time and names to raising money for an amazing cause in one of the worse years a few generations have ever known. What's you're contribution kid?


Rob Parkinson


Not that it is any of your business but I guarantee you I have contributed far more than the majority of people towards this pandemic. A group of busy people? Perhaps you should check the social media of some of these artists to see how 'busy' they actually are. Look into the acts of some of these artists who have done tax evasion, artists like this clearly are only in this for the publicity. Obviously not all as some will genuinely be trying to help but think back to the 80s when the technology was nothing like today but Bob Geldof, Midge Ure and Co managed to get a load of artists to come to a studio and record a song that they had written in less than an hour and look at how well that performs and that really was for charity. In modern times why can't any of these artists say yeah ill even write a new song for you? Too scared of it not getting as good a response as a song that is already known? Or perhaps because they think the track will be too good and would rather reap the rewards themselves? Either way even though the track will get downloaded plenty of times by people who won't even listen to it and it will get overplayed on radio 1 & radio 2 you would help the charity far better by donating the money direct, they get all the cash that way rather than just the proceeds but then I guess people feel better helping a charity knowing they have something in return, a song they don't even listen to but hey you helped a good cause.
