Christmas, U2 Style

Tomorrow’s December; Thanksgiving is over; the tree is up; I guess that mean’s it’s Christmas.  Naturally, I have to find a way to relate this to U2, because, well, I have a U2 addiction problem.  So for your listening pleasure I have three wonderful U2 Christmas numbers, listed in reverse order of favoritism.

3.  “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)” – I’ll be honest: as a Christmas song I’m not really a fan of this one.  It doesn’t really have the Christmas vibe most other songs have.

2.  “Happy X-Mas (War is Over)” by John Lennon – Ok, first of all, the video is terrible quality.  But it’s a Lennon song and it always sounds good, no matter who’s singing it.

1.  “I Believe in Father Christmas” by Greg Lake – Best of the bunch.  The visuals are stunning and that little melody in the beginning sounds like it was written just for The Edge.  Not only a good song, but a great video.

Merry Christmas!
