Did They Know It Was Christmas?
 

Bob Geldof
Bob Geldog These Days

The short, sweet answer to the above question is, no. Why would you want to know, if it was or not, when Christmas Day is just like any other in the year?  With nothing, no hopes, no expectations, no nothing. Bob Geldof, now Sir Bob Geldof wanted to make a change in all of that, so he gathered about him some of the brightest and finest musicians of the time and recorded
Do They Know It's Christmas(Feed The World). It was released November of 1984, and immediately debuted at Number One in Great Britain, and was Number One on the American charts two weeks later.. The song was written by Sir Bob Geldof, and sold fifty million copies. It sold over 3 million copies in Great Britain alone.It was produced & remixed by Trevor Horn. Midge Ure was the co-producer, and he personally accompained the first relief shipment of over $70,000 worth of food and medical supplies to Ethiopa, on March 11, 1985.
Below are the lyrics to that memorable song, and to your right are two lists, one of the musicians who appeared on
Do They Know It's Christmas(Feed The World) and the other, the musicians who appeared in the Live Aid Concerts.There are also several links to World Relief organisations and several organisations that are involved in Social Justice issues
Remember...hunger hasn't gone away, injustice is still with us, and for a good part of the world, they still don't know what Christmas is.

Do They Know It's Christmas
(Feed The World) 
 
 
It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard
But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring
There are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

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 nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again


(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?

 Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
 
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
