What were they thinking?
The original Midnight Oil song had a sense of urgency and justice denied to the native people. The original song was superbly written (both musically and lyrically) and performed. It grabbed your interest and made one look at the less than pleasant side of ourselves.
This song is horribly written. The lyrics seem like they were written by a four year old, the production is totally lacking anything interesting and the music is so boring it could put you to sleep instead of waking one up to the issue they are singing about.
This has to be one of the worst remakes of a song in music history.
