Death defying

Michael Jackson's not been long gone and already there's a desperate Greatest Hits cash-in featuring some songs everyone's already got, one 'new' one and a poem (!?), but now comes the news that this years X Factor finalists have recorded a cover of Jackson's 1995 number 1, 'You Are Not Alone'.

Read about it here.

Rumour has it that Michael Jackson's song wasn't the first choice for the cover. No, initially it was going to be 'No Matter What' by Boyzone. As in, Boyzone, who recently suffered the death of Stephen Gately. Is it appropriate to 'cash-in' on the work of two dead people when you're trying to raise money for a hospital?
