LIVE AID 1985 Inc Music Download (Mixtape 18)

Hello and welcome back....July 13th, 1985 was the place to be with one of the biggest concerts ever telecast around the world...
 "Live Aid 1985"

Cranking up the satellites and broadcasting to an estimated global audience of 1.8 Billion people from 150 nations...

HOW IT ALL STARTED
After images of starving children in Ethiopia were beamed to the TV sets of millions, the images sent shock-waves around the world.
Those images affected one man in particular, that man was....
Bob Geldof, lead singer from 70s/80s band 'The Boomtown Rats'
Bob then contacted MidgeUre (Ultravox) and together with Music promoter Harvey Goldsmith, penned the 1984 song 'Do They know it Christmas' , and with various music artists, went on to raise funds and to try and stop the suffering of the people of Ethiopia.

BAND AID - DO THEY KNOW IT CHRISTMAS (Thanks to cicciopaccioful for the video)



But Bob Geldof had bigger things on his mind...

Meanwhile in America, Music artists 'Michael Jackson' and 'Lionel Richie' had seen the plight that Bob Geldof was preaching and Recorded "USA For Africa - We are the World" with music artists across the U.S.
This effort made $63 million....

USA FOR AFRICA - WE ARE THE WORLD  (Thanks to kamikatze07 for the video)



While "Band Aid - Do They Know it Christmas" was successful as well (raised £8 million), it wasn't enough, realizing that the scale of hunger and disease was bigger than first thought, and the fact that the food and aid was sitting in docks unable to be distributed,  more funds were needed to get the job done properly.....

And so.... Live Aid 1985 was born (aka - The Global Jukebox).




WHERE WAS 'LIVE AID 1985' STAGED ?

Main concerts were held at Wembley Stadium in London,U.K
(from 12pm - 11pm BST (British Summer Time), 72,000 seat capacity)

And John F. Kennedy Stadium in Philadelphia, United States
(from 8.51am -11.05pm EDT (Eastern Daylight Time), 90,000 seat capacity)

Also smaller concerts in Australia (OZ For Africa), Japan, Germany and even Russia.

FREEZEPOP - DOPPELGANGER (Sounds like the 80s)

Hello and welcome back.....I have featured this band in the past with my 'Sounds Like The 80s' Mixtape 1 (SEE HERE) and love their sound.

U.S band 'Freezepop' had this hit 'Doppelganger' in 2012, polished with a quirky video to boot.

So far Freezepop have released 4 albums to date

One question, why isn't this band not bigger than they are, seriously, their music is friggin awesome, with some polished slick sounds but only 8,000 views on this video, am I missing something??

This is one of those songs that stays in your head for a long time.... a 10/10 song

FREEZEPOP - DOPPELGANGER  (thanks to freezepop for the video)



Another excellent song (well I like it :) )

FREEZEPOP - LESS TALK, MORE ROCK

The band Silly still continues today bringing out a new album called Head to Head in 2013.....

One of the best cover versions Ive heard in a long time.....

ZLAD - ELECTRONIK SUPERSONIK

Hello and welcome back..... From the Eastern European republic of Molvania comes 'Zladko “Zlad” Vladcik'

The song 'Electronik Supersonik' was to be the entry song into 2004 Eurovision song contest for Zlad representing his home town but he was disqualified for "Recreational drugs" and deported before he could play his tune.

From a statement on Molvania website - On his return, “Zlad” apologised to everyone in Molvania for letting them down, especially his family, his friends and his drug dealer.

Then, in an exciting move, “Zlad” formed supergroup Wow! But while on their very first tour, he decided to go solo again, citing the fact that the rest of the band was “moving in a different direction” (mainly Romania).


ZLAD - ELECTRONIK SUPERSONIK  (Thanks to tjudge5 for the video)



LYRICS (you know, in case you want to sing along)

Hey baby, wake up from your asleep.
We have arrived on to the future and the whole world is become...

Electronik, supersonik. Supersonik, electronik.

Hey baby, ride with me away.
We doesn't have much time.
My blue jeans is tight,
So on to my love rocket climb.
Inside tank of fuel is not fuel but love,
Above us, there is nothing above
But the stars above.
All systems gone, prepare for downcount!
5
4
3
1!
Offblast!

Fly away in my space rocket.
You no need put money in my pocket.
The door is closed I just lock it.
(Hah!) I put my spark plug in your socket (Hah! Ha ha hah!)

The sun in sky is bright like fire!
You and me gets higher and higher.
Heart of communication fire!
Only thing can stop us is flat tire.

(Hah! Hah! Ha ha hah!)

Hey love crusader, I want to be your space invader.
For you I will descend the deepest moon crater.
I is most stronger than darth vapor.
Obey me, I is your new dictator.

For you is Venus, I am Mars.
With you I is more richer than all the czars.
Make a wishes on a shooting stars, then for you I will play on my cosmic guitars!

Ladies and gentlemen, fasten your beltseats.
We has commenced our descent.
I trust you enjoy this flight as much as you enjoy this accent.

Now, back on earth, is time for down splash.
Into sea of eternal glory my spaceship crash.
People have arrived for to cheer me from near and far.
And as I bloat, I open door and shout:
I am world's biggest washed-up superstar!
(Supersonik, electronik)

As for sure as the sun rises in the west, of all the singers and poets on earth, I am the bestest.
Come, let me put ring of jupiter on your finger.
Then, like a smell around you, I will forever linger.

Okay, is time for end, no more will I sang.
Let me take you back in time, I want for you to experience big bang.
Long live space race, long live Molvania.
