When I made may daily trip to Starbucks this morning (I've got to buy stock in that company), I noticed that the new Paul McCartney CD was playing. Apparently, it went on sale today, and the clerk at Starbucks said that all day today each Starbucks location is playing the McCartney's new CD.

Does anyone know if any other musician has had his music playing simultaneously around the world (or at least in 27 countries)?

The only other thing I could think of would be something like when they used to do those large fundraisers, musicians would come together and sing ("We Are the World, We Are the Children..."). But I couldn't remember if they did that on live TV or not...

Just wondering.

I do think some of those charity events were supposed to be live worldwide pretty much everywhere. I think one of them even took over all radio stations at once, including Muzak, the thing normally heard in elevators and etc. that typically never has any lyrics.

What about that "Hands Across America" event in the 80's. Radio stations throughout the US played the song at a certain and people were supposed to make a human chain, holding hands from coast to coast. I seem to recall there were huge gaps through the desert in Arizona though.

I was at work and my co-worker and I held hands to connect the east and west walls of our office while we listened to teh song on the radio. Pretty goofy!

I think back in the '70's Barry Manilow was singing everywhere at once.

LOL - Not really, Don. It just seemed that way.

I saw the ad for McCartney's CD on a Starbuck's receipt, and asked about it. Apparently, Starbuck's started its own record label, and McCartney was the first person to sign on. I personally am a Starbuck's-hater (which is why I once wrote a quiz called "I prefer Dunkin Donuts"), and find it a little scary that they are now into the recording business. They will probably charge twice as much as anyone else for their recordings!

I'll stick with Tim Horton's -no music necessary-
