      *Looks like its "F- with Dre Day" for
      singer/songwriter Burt Bacharach - but in
      a good way. The 77-year-old author of such
      classic pop hits as "Raindrops Keep Fallin'
      On My Head" and "Alfie" has enlisted Dr.
      Dre to produce three tracks on his new
      album "At This Time," a collection of
      protest songs due Oct. 24.

      Several of the tracks reportedly criticize
      President Bush. Others are general rants
      at current social ills.

      "People ask why a man who has been
      known for writing love songs all of his life
      is suddenly rocking the boat. I had to do
      it," Bacharach said, according to Ananova.
      "This is very personal to me, and this is the
      most passionate album I have ever made."

      A friend of Bacharach said: "Burt's pissed
      at the administration, concerned about the
      world he is leaving to his children, and you
      can feel it."

      Elvis Costello and Rufus Wainwright
      have also contributed to the album, which
      includes the tracks, "Please Explain, Where
      Did It Go?" "Who Are These People," "Can't
      Give Up," "Go Ask Shakespeare" and
      "Dreams."

      The only protest song Dr. Dre should be doing is one aimed at himself. This lackluster buffon that is masquerading as "the most influential producer of his time" is a bum who makes soft beats, wack melodies and forgetable choruses.

      Please, somebody strand this fool on Death Row, cause his musical death is way over due.

      So NOW Dre decides to get "conscious"?

      Some people take themselves WAY TOO SERIOUSLY, when in actuality, no one else is really taking them as seriously as they think.
