Do They Know It's Halloween?

Has anyone else heard this yet? It is a CD single which is kind of a take on Do they Know it's Christmas with the proceeds going to UNICEF. It has some of today's best artists. Beck, Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth) Buck 65, David Cross, members of Feist, Arcade Fire, Postal Service, Wolf Parade, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Sloan, Rilo Kiley and others.

I can't stop listening to it. Just wondering if anyone else has even heard of it. Anyway pick it up it is cheap and all the profits from the first 10 000 CDs goes to UNICEF.

I heard it, and it was very easy for me to stop listening to it.

Far better as an idea than a song, IMO.

The song works better with the video.
