You Tube Songs I Like Part V

Today a seasonal selection which should bring back alot of memories for some people.

22 years ago a group of English musicians got together to record Do They Know It's Christmas Time? in order to raise money for Ethiopian famine relief.

The singers are a who's who of the English scene. Namely Duran Duran, Bananarama, Spandau Ballet and Big Country.

Some things to check out a very young Bono and a very 80s looking George Michael.

Maybe the equipment they used wasn't very good because everyone seems to be holding up their ear when they sing.

This song is dedicated to everyone in Israel who Christmas seems to pass by.

This is my favourite Christmas song ever ( although old time carols such as 'come oh ye faithful' and 'oh holy night' come in very close seconds). Hmmmm.... maybe a late chanukah bush is in order after all these years.

Funny how in versions 2 and 3 they don't seem to suffer from such chronic earache!

Thanks for this DCDI
