Holiday Rock 'n Roll Christmas Songs

Welcome to Rock 'n Roll Fridays. We are like other memes in that we will ask you thirteen questions each and every Friday. But our little "twist" is that each week we will pick a singer, band, era or category and pick thirteen of their songs. Each of our questions will be based on the lyrics. Got it? Great! Let's begin this week's meme!

Today we picked Holiday Rock 'n Roll Christmas Songs.

1. BAND AID: Do They Know It’s Christmas

What is your favorite charity?
