The recorded music industry is responding to the disastrous typhoon in the Philippines with a fundraising compilation which features the biggest names in the business.

The Beatles, Bob Dylan, U2, Eminem, One Direction and Katy Perry are among the superstars who have contributed tracks for the relief album, all proceeds from which will be donated to Philippine Red Cross.

In absolutely every way, that song was entitled to be there...of course the stupidity factor is high and everyone would've dismissed it..Anyway..should've been an Achtung track in there or any other track NOT INCLUDED on 'Behind' & 'Bomb' !

Really not making fun of people's pain...but why take life seriously, it's not as if you'll get out of it alive !

You know the drill...you're getting on with your life (as well as you can) then boom ! You're dead ! A minute you're here, the next you ain't !

They could've rewrote the lyrics to fit the 'Life blows your house down' metaphor but you know, while you're alive you can still rebuild it...if you're dead you can't so don't take life too seriously or your house'll stay down ! Hey, this could've been a lyric !!!

Conclusion:

 

Would've it been right to put such a song in there, reworked to fit the disaster ? Think about it ! But, certainly they could've put a better song on this CD.
