Music Videos: Christmas Edition

Merry Christmas, everyone!

The big day is finally here! Anyone that reads this blog knows I pine for the days when music video channels still aired music videos. Therefore, here’s a special Christmas edition of music videos chosen by Adam.

I’m not saying any of these are even remotely good, but they are some of my favorites. Sometimes for all the WRONG reasons.

Need proof? Here’s  Hall & Oates doing “Jingle Bell Rock.”  I always thought the song was a little catchy in a fruity sort of way. Then one year I finally saw the video and it may very well be the GAYEST video I have ever seen. Intentional? Unintentional? Who knows, but it sure is funny to watch!

No Christmas collection is ever complete with Bing Crosby and David Bowie doing “Little Drummer Boy.” I left my son unattended the other day at his computer (yes, he’s not even four and pretty much has his own computer), and when I came back he had somehow found this video and was watching it. I guess you can do a lot worse than Bowie.

Hey, check it out! It’s lots of mullets, feathered hair, and other staples of the 1980’s! It’s Band Aid and “Do They Know It’s Christmas.”

This song manages to use the words “faggot” “bum”and “scumbag” within almost the same line. “Fairytale of New York” by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl. Such a touching song. Too bad about the teeth.

Mariah Carey – “All I Want For Christmas Is You”

Nah, I couldn’t do that to you.

Here’s the wannabe version instead (much cooler).

Well, that’s probably enough for now to get you going. Have a great day, everyone!
