FERRY AID

 

 

In March 6, 1987, a British ferry called "The Herald Of Free Enterprise" carrying 459 passengers capsized off the coast of Zeebrugge, Belgium killing 190 people.  It was the largest British sea disaster since the sinking of the Titanic in 1912.  A relief fund was set up to help survivors and the victim's families by British trash rag The Sun.  Overcoming many objections to the nature of The Sun's involvement, a charity single was organized to raise funds and featured The Beatles' "Let It Be".  Paul McCartney gave permission for his voice to be used as a guide track and then the alternative pop contingent chimed in including Boy George, Bananarama, Level 42, The Alarm, Curiosity Killed The Cat, Erasure, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The Christians, Hazel O'Connor, Cutting Crew, Nik Kershaw, Maxi Priest, Go West, Paul King, Kim Wilde, and Kate Bush.  1987.
