Am I the only person in the world who thinks that

Michael Jackson's "We are the World" is one of the most grotesquely narcissistic songs ever written?
And then there is the music video, one hundred of the music industry's best and brightest all giving themselves a nice loving rhetorical hummer right there in color on camera.
Honestly, Michael Jackson co-wrote the lyrics, so you just know the original draft was entitled "I am the World".
Okay chill, I KID, I kid because I love...I love to kid. Sure a lot of money got raised for famine relief but a lot of egos got buffed and polished as well...just sayin'.

Still...I forgot how Ray Charles' voice just soared over that mishaugas, gives me chills even today.
