Live Earth highlights
Finally got a chance to catch some of the Live Earth videos on MSN tonight. I was generally very impressed with the video and sound quality, though in true MSN fashion, the player is kind of a pain. (The links below will take you to the right concert, but then you have to toggle to the correct performance. There doesn't seem to be any way to link directly to the performance - argh.) Anyhow, here's what I'm particularly digging.
KT Tunstall performing "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" in New York. Very acoustic and funky.
Jack Johnson performing "Mudfootball" in Sydney. Still my favorite JJ song. Love that bongo rhythm.
Joss Stone performing "Tell Me 'Bout It" in Johannesburg. Man, this girl can blow. It's nice to see her looking a little more put-together, too.
John Legend performing "Ordinary People" in London. I like the stripped down quality of this version. Simple and powerful.
The Police featuring John Mayer and Kanye West performing "Message in a Bottle." Seriously, does it get any cooler?
