9. Band Aid: 'Do They Know It's Christmas?'
A host of stars lent their voices to the Bob Geldof and Midge Ure-written 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' in order to raise money for relief of the 1983-1985 famine in Ethiopia. The nation was so moved by the song that it became the best selling single in chart history at the time, raising millions for charity.
