It's Chriiiiiistmaaaaas!

Song Of The Day

Just the other week I was thinking about previous Christmasses in the U2 LJ community, and how there's often been an appropriate Song Of The Day posted. Do They Know It's Christmas. Peace On Earth. Happy Xmas (War Is Over). Christmas (Baby Please Come Home). With Or Without You live from Mexico City. What a shame there wasn't another Christmassy U2 song I could write about this year. And then, out of nowhere, this appeared!

I Believe In Father Christmas

As you probably know, this was U2's contribution to the (RED)WIRE music launch party on World Aids Day (1st December), and it's a cover of Greg Lake's 1975 hit. If nothing else, you'll want to see Larry not-so-merrily jingling his bells in the video. Priceless!

You can still get this song officially if you subscribe to (RED)WIRE by 28th December, so I'm not gonna go against the spirit of the thing by uploading it here. The video originally appeared as an exclusive on MSN where you can also view songs by other artists who took part in the launch party.

A very Merry Christmas to everyone in u2! :)
