It's kind of grown into a better song than it ever was. But as a recording, as a production, I'm immensely proud of i. To acknowledge the artists and the folks who bought the album, he made sure that "Love from Band Aid" was emblazoned on many of the supplies, including vehicles. Geldof never glorified the relief effort. Asked if he was proud of his work to end hunger in a 1985 Radio Times interview, Geldof replied: "Not at all, It's exhausting and a total bore if you want to know truth. It's not fulfilling at all. I'm endlessly frustrated. Lynne from Malinta, OhIn the 1985 original video of Do They Know It's Christmas, who is the guy the camera zeros in on, who is singing the line, "where the only water flowing"? Tou from Fresno, CaThe intent of this song was to help Ethiopians. It doesn't matter what anyone thinks.

it's Christmas time again Feed the world, let them know it's Christmas time again Heal the world, let them know it's Christmas time again Heal the world. About Do They Know It’s Christmas? To mark the 30th anniversary of the Christmas classic, Do They Know It’s Christmas?, sir Bob Geldof has grouped some of the biggest names in British Pop music to produce this charity single, with proceeds going to help fight the deadly Ebola virus in West Africa.

It was Christmas that year, surpassing all expectations. Artists featured in the recording included: George Michael, Boy George, Bono, Phil Collins, Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, Paul Young, Bananarama, Paul Weller, Heaven 17, Ultravox, Sting, Kool & The Gang, Status Quo, David Bowie, Paul McCartney, Big Country.

It's Christmas time There's no need to be afraid At Christmas time We let in light and we banish shade. And in our world of plenty We can spread a smile of joy Throw your arms around the world At Christmas time. But say a prayer Pray for the other ones At Christmas time it's hard. But when you're having fun There's a world outside your window And it's a world of dread and fear. Where the only water flowing Is the bitter sting of tears

Flashback: Band Aid Raises Millions With ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ The single, released in the United Kingdom on December 3rd, 1984, was crafted to touch people’s heartstrings and to loosen the purse strings. In addition to the tens of millions of dollars it raised worldwide for Ethiopian famine relief, the song helped sew the seeds for Geldof and Ure’s Live Aid concert the following year. Though some have criticized the tune’s musical shortcomings, Geldof remains defiant. Please, it’s a pop song. Relax, he said in a 2014 interview with The Telegraph. It’s not a doctoral thesis. Ure echoed the sentiment in his 2004 autobiography. It is a song that has nothing to do with music.

It's Christmas?", written in 1984 by Geldof and Ure, this time to raise money towards the Ebola crisis in Western Africa "Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears" replaced with "Where a kiss of love can kill you and there's death in every tear".

Bob Geldof organised an all-star cast for the 1984 recording of Do They Know It’s Christmas? to raise funds for famine-relief efforts in Ethiopia. On the 30th anniversary of the release, the ist reworked the song to support West African nations in their fight against the Ebola virus.
