E-mail if you'd like it, but I don't have a working computer at home right now, so it will take a little while to get to you, so maybe someone else will get it to you sooner, meanwhile here is the BAND AID video, this is the directors "rough-cut" which is not meant for public viewing that someone posted on LiveVideo, enjoy all:

What's that other holiday song with that sickly-sweet kid voice singing about how his parents beat him?

I hate that song.

No, no, and no.

It was a horrible 80s tune, for Christmas. Kid vocals. Gettin' abused. Nobody?

It's "Dear Mr. Jesus". I'm listening to it right now. It's horrible.

Oh...UGH! "Please Don't Let Them Hurt Our Children"!!! Thanks SO much for making me remember that. [;)][xx(]

The little girl(?) was singing about how she heard about this other little kid gotten beaten "black and blue" by her daddy, or some other miscreant. The winner of the treacle-yet-disturbing award. And in NO way New Wave.
