My All-Time Favorite X-Mas Song

While the world was fawning all over “We Are The World” (with good reason, I might add), there was another mid-eighties, fundraising, star-driven chorus line out there lighting up the charts while doing good for those in need.

Band Aid was the brainchild of (Sir) Bob Geldof, former Boomtown Rats front man and subsequent Live Aid grand poobah. It was conceived as a fundraiser to help relieve the deadly famine that was decimating Ethiopia at the time, and as far as I know, it’s the only time that Kool & The Gang, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, Duran Duran, U2 and Wham ever recorded a song together.

It was recorded in 24 hours.

Hope you enjoy the song (and video) as much as I do. Here’s to doing our part in ’09- some 25 years later.
