“Do They Know It’s Christmas?” was a famous single with all the proceeds intended to assist famine relief in Ethiopia. The cast of performers in Band Aid is pretty much a who’s who of British pop at the time, with a few Americans thrown in the mix. Wikipedia has the full list of artists, along with a lot more info. I like the song well enough, but I rate it a 10 because of its intended purpose and how successful it was. And all of that can be credited to Bob Geldolf’s drive, and impressive project management skills.
