Bono unhappy with songís ëGodí line -22/11/04

Famous U2 lead-singer Bono is reported to have said that he didn't want to perform his famous ëGodí line again for the new Band Aid record, according to news agency API. The singer revealed that he wanted some different lines this time, because he had hated recording the lyric ëTonight, thank God it's them instead of youí for the original Do They Know It's Christmas? record in 1984. ëI begged them not to make me do it, saying, ìIsn't there another line you could take?î Because, last time, I recorded the whole song," he was quoted as saying. ëI really never liked singing that line the first time, but Nigel Goodrich and the other producers made me do it. So I agreed to it,í he added.
