Do They Know It’s Christmas

I love this song that came out in 1984.

It has some of my favorite artists from the 80’s in it. 

Band Aid is a charity supergroup featuring mainly British and Irish musicians and recording artists. It was founded in 1984 by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for anti-famine efforts in Ethiopia by releasing the song “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” (From Wikipedia.com)
