Band Aid 20," as this collective was known, was produced by Nigel Godrich. Bono is the only artist on this version who was also on the original. In 2014, a fourth permutation of Band Aid was assembled to once again record this song. Laura from Leicester, EnglandI am 13 years old and I absolutely love the "Do They Know It's Christmas-time?" re-make. And it does appeal to people of our age. We brought it and so did loads of people I know who are younger and older.
C F And it's a world of dread and fear. Dm G Where the only water flowing. C F Is the bitter sting of tears. Dm G And the Christmas bells that ring there. C F Are the clanging chimes of doom. Dm G C Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you. F G C And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmastime. F G C The greatest gift they'll get this year is life, Ohhhh. F G Where nothing ever grows. C F No rain nor rivers flow. Dm G C F C Do they know it's Christmastime at all? Am Here's to you. G Raise a glass for everyone.
