Did We Know It Was Christmas?

In 1984, this song sold 1 million copies in its first week to raise money for the famine in Ethiopia.

The ’80s weren’t all completely self-involved (although, OMG, check out that hair!)

    I still love this song. Paul Young! Best parts on a 2013 rewatch: Phil Collins “drum face”; Simon Le Bon singing it like it’s a sexy song, and how young everyone looks….

    I always get this song stuck in my head over Christmas holidays. I haven’t watched it in forever, though. What’s amazing to me is that when I was 13, all of those guys looked totally different to me — Sting is not George Michael, my god! Now watching, they all look so baby faced and similar.

    But someone help me out: Who are the women at the end? Bananarama?
