Very nice. :D

On another note... Avril Lavigne singing a cover of Bob Dylan's classic "Knockin' on Heaven's Door"? I can't see that working out too well... ?_?

I think Earth Wind and Fire are an old disco band who sang a classic called "Boogie Wonderland" ^__^

As for Avril doing "Knocking on Heaven's Door"... just take solace in the fact you've never heard her cover of System of a Down's "Chop Suey"... *shudders*

oooh also looking forward to hearing Skin's collaboration (if it's the same Skin I'm thinking off) and I've heard Cheb Ami sing before on one of Sting's tracks... some really cool arabic wailing

Speaking of shuddering Avril singing...have you ever heard her sing any of her OWN songs? I heard her sing 'complicated' live and she was just off tone and everything ?_?

I absolutely hate that song to begin with, and I actually wonder if her singing it could be any worse.

I don't plan on finding out, mind you, but it's a thought...

Hooray for Hikki! Maybe she won't get noticed by potential US fans right away just for contributing to this compilation thingy but it'll get her foot in the door!

Also...I don't know a whole lot about Avril, but everything I read about her makes it look like she's trying trying REALLY HARD to not be a sugary pop singer, and calling SO much attention to how far off she is from that image. (but she didn't even write her own songs for her first album) I do kindasorta think that her song Sk8erboi (or however you spell it) is pretty catchy...

And even more offtopic, Avril just happened to be on the same Heyx3 episode as GLAY recently!Screencaps! The lead singer's a fan of hers...
