Flashback Friday: Duran Duran

After Tuesday’s presidential election, I felt disillusioned, shocked, sad and angry. The results were NOT what I had expected. I’m hoping by listening to Duran Duran–specifically this song–it will help me remain optimistic about our country’s future. ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™‚

But nobody knows what’s gonna happen tomorrow
We try not to show how frightened we are
If you let me – I’ll protect you – however I can
You’ve got to believe it’ll be alright in the end
You’ve got to believe it’ll be alright again


Song Sunday: Band Aid

Here’s another classic Christmas song, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” sung by the charity supergroup Band Aid, which consisted of a group of well-known British and Irish musicians and singers, including members from Duran Duran, George Michael from Wham!, members from Bananarama, Spandau Ballet, Culture Club and U2, Phil Collins, Jody Watley, Paul Young and many others.

In 1984, Band Aid was founded by singers Bob Geldof and Midge Ure in order to raise money for anti-poverty efforts in Ethiopia.
