Requesting Do they know its christmas by band aid

Discuss hard-to-find or out-of-print New Wave and '80s Alternative, and share a few songs along the way.
NOTE: requesting songs that are entirely unrelated to the genres discussed here or easily found on CD is strongly discouraged and posts will be enforced as needed.

When I was 10, I was convinced I was going to marry him someday. (I've always had a thing for dudes in makeup...). Now, in light of his drug problems and that little incident where he apparently tied up and kept some guy hostage in his house while threatening him with sex toys, I'm OK that it never worked out. All that, and the fact that he's, you know, on the other team. [:D]
