U2’s I still haven’t found what I’m looking for appears on this Rhythms del Mundo album, which does for Cuban music what Nouvelle Vague did for Bossa Nova, recreating pop and rock music in collaboration with Buena Vista Social Club musicians.
The album is released in support of Artists’ Project Earth (APE), which comes to the aid of natural disaster and raises awareness of climate change.
While some of the songs by other artists on the CD (Sting, Radiohead, Dido, Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, Arctic Monkeys) seem suited to the style, Coco Freeman’s version of U2’s song doesn’t work all that well. ‘Bad mash up’ springs to mind, when Bono’s vocal from the original kicks in. You can listen to the album on its promotional website.
So he sounds a little like Sting and he was in Menudo with Ricky Martin. Nobody’s perfect. Besides penning ‘La Vida Loca’ and the simply awful ‘She bangs’ Robi Draco Rosa can write perfect, sultry tragic and obsessive love songs. He proves it on his solo album Mad Love which, apart from U2’s latest, must be my most played album of 2004. Which for any singer sounding as much like Sting as he does is an amazing feat, let me tell you.
