New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords' new single went straight to number one on iTunes on Friday, with proceeds going to a great cause.

The song, (Feel Inside) And Stuff Like That, was part of the Red Nose Day: Comedy for Cure Kids TV extravaganza, and features the vocals of some of New Zealand’s best loved singers, including Dave Dobbyn.

The lyrics of the new song came straight from the words of children interviewed by the Conchords.

The TV event raised over $1.3 million for Cure Kids, a charity that aims to find cures for the life-threatening illnesses that affect many of the country’s children.

The song and album went to number one on iTunes in New Zealand within 90 minutes of its release.

“We are incredibly excited by the calibre of stars who have given us their valuable time and we are so grateful for their passion and drive to help us raise awareness of what Cure Kids does,” says Cure Kids CEO Vicki Lee.
“It’s humbling and inspiring to know our mission to improve the health of children through research and its outcomes resonates with all of New Zealand – from international names giving us so much of their time and backing, through to schools in every community holding fundraising events, putting on a red nose and being silly for a very serious cause.”
