Band Aid by Loveforlife on 19 November 2004 8:39pm
Ok! Has anyone heard that New Band Aid song? In my opinon the first one with Bono, Paul Young and Boy George etc. was what i call an 'UNTOUCHABLE' song which should of been the only one of it's kind. How unbelievably SHIT!!! this one is in my view beyond belief! Would love to hear anybody else's opinion about it.

Recommend you check out the discussions on this forum under 'Do they know it's Christmas' which has already started the ball rolling on this.

I agree, Loveforlife that it's not as good as the original - except my beloved Bono!! - in fact they're calling it Bland Aid!

Maybe it's because we're all so familiar with the old one, I don't know, but it just seems weak (except my beloved... etc etc).

I've put down the Live Aid DVD (4 discs) on my list to Santa but I don't know if any money is going to charity. Just looking forward to seeing the U2 slot again. I'd recorded it on video but it got overtaped (GRRR) by accident. Crikey I've been a U2 fan for over 20 years.....

All profits from the Live Aid DVDs will go to help people in Sudan.

Thanks for that ClareS.

wonder if you have to pay VAT on this dvd and new single as there was a bit of an argument about it in 84 with MT and in the end the government donated the VAT to the band aid trust - wonder if TB will do the same as he was on the tv prog stating (in 84) that the money should go to famine - so wonder if this government is going to donate the VAT too - hmmm
