Song of the Day - Do They Know It's Christmastime? (Feed the World) - Band Aid

Well folks, believe it or not, Christmas is only a week away.  It always comes so fast, doesn't it?  Well here's a Christmas song from almost 30 years ago.  This project was conceived by Pink Floyd's Bob Geldof, along with former Ultravox frontman Midge Ure, to raise money for the famine that had stricken Ethiopia in the early eighties.

The song featured an impressive array of then popular artists, including members of The Police, Duran Duran, Bananarama, Spandau Ballet, Boy George, George Michael, Jody Watley, Paul McCartney, and plenty of others.  The song sold more than 6 million copies worldwide and still gets played every Christmastime.
