Hmmm, I seem to be getting some sort of a reputation as an extortionist! I only said it was an offer you MIGHT not like to refuse...

OK here goes with Thursday 13th July :
1 On 13th July 1985, there was "Live Aid". Give the first or second name of a group or single performer that was in it, that begins with P.
2 Name a performer or group that was in both Band Aid and Live Aid.
3 Name a member of the orchestra in "We are the World"
4 Give us a line from "Do They Know it's Christmas?"
5 And since you all know that Eric Clapton is GOD(or you should by now): give me a song title from his CD from 2001 "Reptile".
Any help will be provided. XX S
(edited to add that any entrants who add little enhancements like calling me "girl" and including extra goodies in their PM's will receive preferential treatment, of course)
