10 Most Annoying Songs of Holiday Radio
8. Band-Aid/Do They Know It's Christmas?
Total plays per season: 17,000
Boomtown Rats musician and "We Are The World" planner Bob Geldof's heart was in the right place when he gathered a who's who of British pop singers for this holiday number about famine in Africa, but, man, the heavy-handed paternalism in this tune didn't age well. First off, "where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow" is just a bit of a stretch when just about every country on the planet wants Nigeria's oil or Congo's precious metals. Even the guy who sang "And the Christmas bells that ring there, are the clanging chimes of doom. Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you" eventually came around to seeking forgiveness of African nations' debts instead of nickel-and-dime donations from kids in record shops.
