John Wesley Harding – July 13th 1985 lyrics

July 13th 1985 was the day we watched Live Aid
The Global Jukebox came alive
We fed the world that day
We fed the world that day
It was a day for a party we made a lot of food and we ate it sure as hell
Vegetarian salads, they had no meat, there was leftovers as well
Everybody laughed when I said
Thinking of the people either dying or dead
Let's pick up the leftovers, send them to the starving children in Ethiopia
My mother used to say that
Sure I was pleased to give money, cause it was not a political cause
I just remember the smiling faces, the music and the applause
I spent 30 quid on coke
I smoked a little too much dope
I was wiped out from 5 til 7, I missed Spandau Ballet and U2
July 13th 1985 was the day we watched Live Aid
The Global Jukebox came alive
We fed the world that day
We fed the world that day
The music was fucking brilliant and that Madonna she sure can move
By the time Paul Mccartney's microphone had failed yeah, we are all well into the Live Aid groove
Paul Mccartney, he sang...
Which must have been a bit of an irony
Cos if you 'Let it Be' nothing will ever improve
But it was one of the first times I ever heard one of the real Beatles sing a real Beatles' song live on television, I really wished Julian Lennon had turned up instead of his recently dead father, I was really moved
July 13th 1985 was the day we watched Live Aid
The Global Jukebox came alive
We fed the world that day
We fed the world that day
Well the powerful voice of pop music, solve the problems, feed the world
So what if there weren't any blacks involved there was Everything but the Girl
Bob Geldof has no ego that man should get the Nobel Prize
By the t
