Great idea!

Here's the lyrics.....


Do They Know It's Christmas?

[1:]
It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

[2:]
But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard
But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring
There are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

[3:]
And there won't be snow in Africa
This Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again

[BRIDGE:]
(Here's to you) raise a glass for everyone
(Here's to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

[END:]
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time

[END:]
[repeat & fade]

Tell yer what , i started watching the new video,and when chris martin started singing ,I thought this is gonna be good and sure enough ,DIDO, delivered the goods, BUT WHAT THE F++KING HELL HAPPENED AFTER THAT.......Will young ?, OK,he,s got a voice ,but here he sounds pretty avarage.I did,nt even recognise Robbie williams behind that big mic.As for bono , read all the all stories in the paper,s about justin,hawkins .I WANNA SING THAT LINE,And maybe he was right.But then the rappers started.And ya think , WHO WAS BEHIND THE DESK, CAUSE HE F**KED IT UP. I HOPE ALL YOU GREAT GUITARISTS OUT THERE AND SINGERS, AND ALL OTHER MUSOS LATCH ON TO THE GUITAR BAND AID 101 BACKING TRACK. AND MAKE SOME SOMETHING WELL WORTH LISTENING TO. KEEP ON ROCKING IN THE FREE WORLD/

I finally heard the new Band Aid 20 song. I have to agree, it sounds awful. Just goes to show what great singers there were on the original. I mean, the vocals are so low in the mix, it sounds like one of MY recordings !

:icon_eek:

Anyway, I'd be up for popping some vocals onto this one, and some guitar, maybe, but I'd happily pass on that one for fear of it turning into the horrible mess that is Band Aid 20.

Did they just say, "Ah, fook it, everyone just play whatever you feel like, it'll be alright !" :dunno:

Attention all singers....I have listened to this track and here are my thoughts.

This thing is basically vocals....not much room for guitar...so the focus will be on singing.

With all the harmonies and overlays on the vocals....it has the real potiential to be a major clusterF.....because nobody can hear each other in cyberspace.

The only way I see to track this thing is to get one of our strongest singers (as far as pitch) to sing the entire thing A-Z and send it to me.

I will then make a backing track as send everyone their part to sing against....then cut and paste this and boy up.

To get started I need everyone that wants to participate to reply to this thread so I can see how may vocalists we have to work with.

Who wants to step up to the plate and sing the lead for the BT????

This sounds like a job for the one and only Toastmaster General maybe??????
