I heard this song on the radio the other day, and it got me thinking back to the original video, which was made in 1984, 29 years ago. It was an amazing video, gathering many of the best English singers of the day to gather together for a huge charitable video and song. Remember 1984 was when MTV actually played music videos and Do They Know It's Christmas was on heavy rotation!

The success of Band-Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas gave way to We are the World in 1985
