Writer's remorse

Do They Know It's Christmas was worst song in the world, admits Bob Geldof

If you haven't heard a rendition of Do They Know It's Christmas yet this year, it's only a matter of time.

But should you curse Bob Geldof for writing That Song, you'll be in good company. He's fed up with it too.

The single was released 26 years ago today as Geldof set up Band Aid to raise money for famine-hit Ethiopia.

And although it became the biggest selling single in the world at the time, it seems he's had enough.

He said: 'I am responsible for two of the worst songs in history. One is Do They Know It's Christmas? and the other one is We Are The World.

'Any day soon, I will go to the supermarket, head to the meat counter and it will be playing. Every ****ing Christmas.'
