One of my annual Christmas rituals is trying to identify all the artists in this video. I’ve been trying for 25 years, and I still can’t name everyone. It’s much more difficult than the “We Are The World” video. I suppose I could rely on Wikipedia or some other internet source to give me the complete list, but where’s the fun in that? If you’re at a Christmas party over the next few days, I recommend playing this, and trying to come up with a complete list. Even naming the group the musician belongs to is acceptable in my book.
Here, I’ll start things off:
Paul Young, Boy George, Phil Collins, George Michael, Simon Le Bon, Sting, the dude from Spandau Ballet, Bono, I think Paul Weller, and one guy from The Culture Club, one guy with a ponytail who looks like The Edge but isn’t The Edge, and some guy in a hat.
There you go. That’s your first 1:47. Good luck and God speed, especially for any of you born after 1980.
