McFly - All About You / You've Got A FriendSo the Comic Relief single baton is handed down to those cheeky chappies in McFly, and what a great pair of songs they've done. The first one, "All About You", is a sweet and breezy springtime love declaration that isn't at all sickly. The harmonising of Tom and Danny is buzzy and beautiful like a bee, and the video is great too. Meanwhile, "You've Got A Friend" is a bit more stripped down, and the video is a little tear-jerking to watch (it's shot in Uganda). still, if you buy any record this week, make it this. A great single, perfect for spring and all for a good cause. Can't get any better than that really.

McFly are back with what can be safely described as the best Comic Relief single for ages. "All About You" might be a re-hash of "Obviously", but it has a nice melody and is pleasant, if not spectacular. "You've Got A Friend", on the other hand, is a beautiful song originally, but McFly's arrangement is a little too downbeat.
