Do They Know It’s Murder?

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it’s them
Instead of you

I’m sure most of you remember this song, the one that kicked off years of “Something-or-other-Aid” singles and concerts…

Apparently that song has not, uh, lived out its lifespan just yet. Totally swiped from Ace Of Spades HQ

Supposedly — this sounds made-up to me, but whatever, supposedly — someone’s making a movie called Do They Know It’s Murder?

The premise is this: at the recording of Band Aid’s charity single “Do They Know It’s Christmas?, a fellow Brit rocker (or hanger-on) is murdered.

To make sure the single is finished without incident, Bob Geldof must suddenly put his detective skills to use — you know, I guess maybe he actually solved the case of the girl who shot up the school in I Hate Mondays or some bullshit — and find the killer before they lose the studio space.

Seriously, it’s being claimed this will be a movie coming out.

If that’s real, I’ll totally see it.

If that’s a punking — well played.

To quote birthmoviesdeath.com

We need to make peace with the fact that this film will most likely have an entire ensemble of actors made-up to look like ‘80s Brit pop stars. Oh, and one of those recognizable ’80s musicians is getting murdered?

Folks, I give you my most anticipated film of the decade.

I have no idea if this is real. But if this hellspawned monstrosity of awful tastelessness and wrecking-not-very-cherished-song-memories-from-the-80s is real, they have my ticket money.
