Band Aid Released Charity Single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” 35 Years Ago Today

35 years ago today, Band Aid released charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” Recorded—by the likes of U2, Sting, Duran Duran, Boy George and Paul Weller—only eight days prior, it became the biggest-selling single in U.K. history. (It’s now number two.) The line “Well, tonight thank God it’s them instead of you,” however, still seems a little strange after all these years. Maybe even a little … fucked up.
