The brainchild of Bob,

who with his Rats, let us know,

they didn’t much like Mondays,

but knew how to organise a show.

 

‘Rebel, Rebel’ sang out David,

and also ‘Heroes’ from the heart.

And proving we won’t be fooled again,

The Who, their wisdom did impart.

 

‘Rocking all over the world’

were Quo, at their very best,

and walls came tumbling down, when

Style Council came on, and impressed. 

 

Midge Ure played a big part;

dancing with tears in his eyes,

along with his band, Ultravox;

their fans all mesmerised.

 

Elton begged, ‘Don’t let

the sun go down on me’.

Whilst Paul sang his rendition

of his hit song ‘Let it be’.

 

Spandau Ballet came on next

with ‘Only when you leave’,

which touched the hearts of many,

who in life, have had to grieve.

 

‘Is this the world we created’?

asked Freddie with Brian May:

More poignant, than ever,

now Freddie’s gone away.

 

Elvis Costello did inspire,

with ‘All you need is love’,

and Nik Kershaw solved ‘the riddle’,

and also sang, ‘Wouldn’t it be good’.

 

BB King let us know

why he sings the blues,

but now won’t open the door,

as his fight for life, did sadly lose.

 

Sade begged the question;

‘Why can’t we live together?

Whilst Phil’s ‘Against all odds’,

expressed love in stormy weather.

 

Sting sang his song ‘Roxanne’,

and with Phil, ‘Every breathe you take’,

and Adam Ant with Vive le rock,

did his appearance make.

 

Next came Howard Jones,

who sang ‘Hide and Seek’,

then Bryan and ‘Slave to love’,

with his voice so soft and sleek.

 

Paul Young knows we cry,

everytime he goes away,

but that’s the way love is,

now his hat has gone astray.

 

U2’S ‘Sunday bloody Sunday’

didn’t disappoint their fans.

The appearance of Bono,

guaranteed a show of hands.

 

Dire Straits ‘Money for nothing’,

also joy did bring,

and the audience went crazy,

for their ‘Sultans of swing’.

 

Each artist performed for love,

and by determination, was led.

Their message loud and clear:

That all children of the world – be fed.
