On this day in 1984, the single Do they know it’s Christmas? was released by Band Aid. The charity supergroup was originally made up of members of U2, Duran Duran, The Police and many more bands, as well as individual artists Boy George, Paul McCartney and David Bowie, amongst others. Funds raised by the group went to anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia. Listen to the original recording of Do they know it’s Christmas? above.
