At the 1985 Brit Awards, Young received the award for Best British Male.[9]

In July 1985, Young appeared at Live Aid held at Wembley Stadium, London, performing the Band Aid hit “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” (having sung the opening lines on the original single release), and his own hits “Come Back and Stay” and “Every Time You Go Away”, with Alison Moyet joining him on stage to perform “That’s The Way Love Is”.[10] “Every Time You Go Away” reached number one in the US in 1985, and won Best British Video at the 1986 Brit Awards.[11]
