Do They Know It’s Christmas? (2004)

2004年版的”Do They Know It’s Christmas”,這個由群星義唱的團體稱為Band Aid 20(不同年代有不同編號),這首歌的第一句由Coldplay主唱Chris Martin演唱,俗話說「好的開始是成功的一半」,我根本才聽第一句就愛上了Band Aid 20的版本,然後Dizzee Rascal的rap是另外添加的,以前版本並沒有rap,不過我覺得Dizzee Rascal的rap很棒。

Come Together Now (2005)

這是本篇第三次出現Aaron Carter了,可能是因為哥哥Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys)很常受邀義唱,每次都要帶弟弟一起去參加,也可以說亞倫卡特在當時真是最有愛心的小朋友啊,新好弟弟的封號受之無愧!

Just Stand Up! (2008)

看現場表演影片,Miley Cyrus的歌聲真的好突出,我無法說是好是壞,大家自己評斷唄!然後Mariah Carey,我整個影片一直偷注意她,想說這位天后怎麼那麼安靜,她真的有在唱嗎?還是只是嘴巴張開假裝有在合聲而已,後來到影片後半段,終於有天后發揮的機會了,沒辦法,這種群星大拜拜的場合,沒有人是唯一的主角,自然輪到自己獨唱的時候,一定得好好表現才是!

Everybody Hurts (2010)

終於有一首慈善單曲是有邀請Take That的了,因為我一直覺得很納悶,怎麼以上介紹的慈善單曲通通沒有Take That咧,不過也沒辦法,從他們1996年解散到2005年復出這期間,真不知道錯過多少慈善義唱的機會,而且這時期也真的是這種群星募款活動最蓬勃的時候。

Charity/Cause:
2010 Haiti earthquake relief

Artists:
Alexandra Burke, Cheryl Cole, JLS, James Blunt, James Morrison, Joe McElderry, Jon Bon Jovi, Kylie Minogue, Leona Lewis, Mariah Carey, Michael Bublé, Mika, Miley Cyrus, Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Susan Boyle, Take That, Westlife

We Are The World 25 For Haiti (2010)

這首為海地大地震募款的慈善單曲,真的非常動人心弦,我老實說,我聽到一半忍不住熱淚盈眶了,真的不是我太情緒化,你聽了就知道!

Charity/Cause:
2010 Haiti earthquake relief

Artists:
Justin Bieber, Nicole Scherzinger, Jennifer Hudson, Jennifer Nettles, Josh Groban, Tony Bennett, Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson (stock footage), Janet Jackson, Barbra Streisand, Miley Cyrus, Enrique Iglesias, Jamie Foxx, Wyclef Jean, Adam Levine, Pink, BeBe Winans, Usher, Celine Dion, Orianthi, Fergie, Nick Jonas, Toni Braxton, Mary Mary, Isaac Slade, Carlos Santana, Lil Wayne, Akon, T-Pain, LL Cool J, will.i.am, Snoop Dogg, Nipsey Hussle, Busta Rhymes, Swizz Beatz, Kid Cudi, Mann, Kanye West, Quincy Jones, Lionel Richie, Mervyn Warren

Wavin’ Flag (2010)

跟上一首同樣是為海地大地震募款,不同的是這陣容是以年輕歌手為主,可能很多年輕一點的歌手也想貢獻一分心力,可是因為不夠份量沒有受邀演唱前面介紹的”We Are The World”,而這首”Wavin’ Flag”正好提供給年輕歌手一同義唱的機會。話說Justin Bieber可是這兩首都有參加,因為剛好正當紅又年輕吧。

Charity/Cause:
2010 Haiti earthquake relief

Artists:
K’naan, Nelly Furtado, Sam Roberts, Avril Lavigne, Pierre Bouvier, Tyler Connolly, Kardinal Offishall, Jully Black, LIGHTS, Deryck Whibley, Serena Ryder, Jacob Hoggard, Emily Haines, Hawksley Workman, Drake, Chin Injeti, Ima, Pierre Lapointe, Elisapie Isaac, Esthero, Corb Lund, Fefe Dobson, Nikki Yanofsky, Matt Mays, Justin Nozuka and Justin Bieber,etc.

Do They Know It’s Christmas? (2014)

如果Adele能參加就好了,至少會讓這首歌更加動人,老實說今年版本,大家唱的分開聽是唱得不錯,可是整體給人的感人程度就比以前的差很多,可能這情形也反映了音樂圈的現況(歌唱技巧或許很不錯,感人程度卻未必成正比),所以說Adele沒參加真的非常可惜!後來才發現,2014年版比起過去的版本,原來少了搖牛鈴的聲音,聖誕味少好多啊!
