MMM - Do they know it's Christmas (Band Aid)

MINUTOSMUSICALESMENSUALES

(Paul Young)It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
(Boy George)And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time
(George Michael)But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard
(Simon LeBon)But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
(Sting) And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is
(Bono joins in)The bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that are ringing
Are clanging chimes of doom
(Bono only) Well, tonight thank God it's them instead of you.
(Everyone)And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time.
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
(Paul Young)Here's to you
raise a glass for everyone
Here's to them
underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Chorus
(Everyone)Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again
Repeat



Y el Making of.

Aquesta cançó és de les que marquen una època, sens dubte.

La brillant idea de Bob Geldof per sensibilitzar els que formem part del "primer món" sobre la misèria a l'Àfrica va ser una revolució.

...i el "Do they know it's Christmas" va ser un èxit de vendes...ja sigui per la melodia, pel contingut de lletra, per veure monstres musicals dels 80 reunits un diumenge a les 10 del matí amb les seves indumentàries de l'època (tranquil, Phil, qui no ha tingut un pullover de rombos sense mànigues?!)...

Genial post, jucasel
