I remember Band Aid
twenty years ago, that's the record
I mean and not the American version of Elastoplast
I was in Ladakh
, India, for Live Aid so I missed it. I did manage to get to a mini-festival for Drug Aid in Goa
though. There were about eight performers, of which six were groups who had a girl who sang Smooth Operator
, the Sade
hit at the time, and a folk singer whose biggest hit had been a song for tolerance called Jesus Was A Hippy
. I can't find anything about it through Google, but I remember references to sandals, poverty, a beard and long hair completed the analogy.
Thanks to Bob Geldof, the pirating of cassettes ceased in Indonesia in 1988. However, the piracy of DVDs and software continues. N.B. These figures
are out-of-date and are probably much worse in spite of (because of ?) Microsoft's efforts
. There has also been an increase in shipping piracy.
