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.
