Band Aid (Holiday)

Charity supergroup Band Aid was formed in London, England in 1984 by Boomtown Rats frontman Bob Geldof and producer Midge Ure. Intended to fund anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia, the ensemble recorded the single "Do They Know It's Christmas?" for release during the 1984 holiday season. Aided by vocal efforts from Bono, Sting, George Michael, Boy George, Simon Le Bon, and a host of other contemporary pop stars of the day, the single topped the pop charts, becoming the number one Christmas single of the year and raising more than $24,000,000 for its cause. Such was Band Aid's success, several other celebrity-aided organizations launched fundraising campaigns the following year resulting in the star-studded Live Aid concert and the American charity supergroup USA for Africa. "Do They Know It's Christmas?" remains a popular holiday single and has been re-recorded twice by updated versions of Band Aid during the group's 20th and 30th anniversaries with proceeds again going to relief efforts in Africa. ~ Timothy Monger

My friend and I saved our money and had my mom drive us to Camelot record store so we could help those poor folks. We each bought one. I was 11. It was an awesome album cover if I remember accurately. Different than the one presented here. Or at least my 11yr old self thought so. I still have it.

@Kevin Adair - um the line was supposed to be sarcastic to people who say that to themselves.

Great intent, good execution on the production and singing but some of the lines? please! "thank god tonight it's them instead of you"??! Rather self indulgent and selfish- a very noble efforf by Bob geldoff and Co. though and it raised a lot of $$ for the less fortunate... . . . . . . . . . p e a c e to all

Bandaid was a bunch of British artists such as Bono, Bananarama, Elton John, Sting, and many more to benefit the starving in Africa. It spawned a copycat by American artists that called themselves "USA for Africa".

Yes, Band Aid was a large celebration of music at Christmastim e . I can't remember if there were multiple incarnations , or if it was just 1984...

Isn't Band Aid made up of a whole bunch of bands? If anyone knows?
