Watched the documentary last night and finally came to the conclusion that I should have made ages ago – the quality of the song is irrelevant. It’s all about the money. It doesn’t matter who sings, how it’s arranged or whether the rap should have been included (although thankfully Justin from Darkness didn’t get to sing Bono’s line as what I heard last night was awful). We need to buy it and we need to contribute what we can and hope that one day the politicians will one day make a sensible decision and write off third world debt which I know is over simplistic but the millions that will be raised will not even dent the problems in Africa.
The original Band Aid was my first ever record purchase…20 years ago. To mark this anniversary I made it my first purchase from iTunes Music store…and then bought the Band Aid 20 version.

As Midge Ure said “so what if you don’t like it, that’s not the point. Buy it, stick in your loft and in 20 years time sell it on eBay and give us the money”.
Oddly enough I bought it on Monday through iTMS.
I’d rather stick a couple of quid in a charity tin than buy a record I’ll never play, but it is better than the very dreary original.
You must be deaf. I heard it for the first time today, good grief, it’s even worse than the original.
