I recall sitting in my previous boyfriend's kitchen and listening to Radio 1 and a interview with Midge Ure and Bob Geldof. Thet talked about this charity song and how they hoped it sold well enough to send some money to Africa. The rest, as they say, is history. A song very much of it's time and an anthem for seventeen year old RJ Scott.

This is by far the best version of this song (no hitting me), and any other *Aid* songs that followed... Sting, Bono, Phil Collins, Simon Le Bon, ... amazing line up and somewhat controversial mostly non-relevant lines... 

I remember owning a copy of that newspaper with the pictures of them all.
