Written by [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Bob Geldof[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Midge Ure[/lastfm], Do They Know It’s Christmas? was recorded in 1984 to raise money for the relief of the 1983-85 Ethiopian famine.  The group, collectively known as Band Aid, featured [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Duran Duran[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Boy George[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]George Michael[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sting[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]David Bowie[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Paul McCartney[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]U2[/lastfm] and more.  The following year, Geldof took things one step further with the debut of the Live Aid concerts.
