madonna.gifGet those lighters ready. Madonna has recorded a new song called “Hey You” for the upcoming Live Earth concert series on July 7th. As a part of a special limited time offer, MSN is allowing the song to be downloaded for free from their official Live Earth site. For the next 7 days, MSN will donate 25 cents for each of the first 1 million downloads. All money collected will be donated to The Alliance For Climate Protection. Why are they being so generous?

Honestly, the song is weak. It starts off nice, but quickly turns into a station changer with syncopation madness and confusing lyrics. Madonna sings “First love yourself, then you can save someone else, if you can change someone else, then you have saved someone else, but you must first love yourself.” Right. But, in the middle of the song she says, “Hey you, first love yourself or if you can’t try to love someone else.” Wait a minute? What am I supposed to do? I thought I could only move on if I loved myself first?

It’s catchy — it will be used as an anthem for certain aspects of the show — but much like the Greenpeace “Go Green” song, don’t expect this one to get much play time.

You can download Madonna’s new song here!

Thanks to Linton for the tip!
