Do They Know it's Christmas...Video Sunday

This was a charity record that was meant to raise awareness and money for famine relief in Ethiopia.  It is impossible to find an accurate account for how much it has raised. The lyrics are a constant reminder that hunger is still and issue.

It was the mid 80's...and this was the best thing on MTV!

Here are the band members my older brother, Larry, was able to name 
(in order of appearance)

Paul Young
Boy George
Phil Collins
George Michael
Simon Le Bon

  1. Great message Linda. Let us think of others this time of year and not just ourselves. I always loved that group video " We are the World", too. Have a great weekend.

  2. Geez. I feel both old and nostalgic for the mid 80's (I was in HS). Always a good reminder to give what you can, times are tough for a lot of people this holiday season. Merry xmas to you and yours. xo

  3. I love that song and video. (teen in the 80's). My 13 year old has come to love it as well. I quiz him now on who is singing. Merry Christmas.

  4. Linda I love that song and great message !!Merry Christmas!!

  5. Still awesome. I turned it up LOUD. Love it. Happy Happy Holidays to you my dear!

  6. One of my all time Christmas songs. Happy Holidays, Linda!

  7. In a local grocery store they have a basket so you can give all year long, which I like.

    I have to admit that I recognized a lot of the names but not the faces, except Boy George {that one was a giveaway though} and Sting.

    1. I forgot to say that I have heard the windows take a year to crate for some stores and I would believe it!

  8. Great message Linda. Happy Christmas to you and yours!

  9. That was/is one of my favorites. It is important message to remember especially in a world some of us have so much. Merry Christmas friend! And wishing you & your family a very Happy New Year!!!Jen

  10. Seriously?? My husband and I were freshmen in college and thought it was the coolest thing ever though we didn't know each other yet. We have the making of the song/video on DVR which is very interesting if you're a child of the eighties. As an aside, I still wonder how it is that I thought George Michael was so hot in his Faith period when I had seen his Wham videos.

  11. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


  12. I love this video!! Brings back memories!! Wishing you the merriest of Christmases to you and yours!! And thank you for the bracelets I got them!! So super cute!! xx
