“We Are the World” is 37 years old today

Maybe its better not to acknowledge that song:
From Wikipedia
" In contemporary times, the song has received criticism for what has been described as a colonial western-centric viewpoint and condescending stereotypical descriptions of Africa, notably the phrase sung by Bono: Well tonight thank God it’s them instead of you ."


We are the worms
Out on the sidewalk.
We are the ones who make a squishy mess
So watch where you walk.
It’s a chance we’re taking
Leaving out homes underground
Though it’s true we’ll get a better tan,
Just you and me.
