A blast from the past thatâ€™s as relevant today as it was when â€œDo They Know Itâ€™s Christmas?â€ was first recorded a quarter of a century ago.
This is a song in which a real A-list of musical talent and influence came together to record for Band Aid, a charity supergroup featuring British and Irish musicians and recording artists. It was founded in 1984 by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure to raise money for famine relief in Ethiopia.
Something still to think about in many places around the world as we tuck in to our Christmas lunches and dinners during the next 24 hours.
