New U2 Christmas Video

It's no secret I'm a big U2 fan. As part of the launch of the new Red (Wire) digital music magazine (designed to help eliminate AIDS in Africa), U2 has recorded a version of the Greg Lake classic, "I Believe in Father Christmas." Great video for a great cause.

The Red (Wire) launch page also has some other cool music and videos from artists like Death Cab for Cutie, Elvis Costello & The Police, Jenny Lewis, Coldplay, The Killers (w/ Elton John), John Legend, and more.

Not sure if I like the new version of this song as much as the original, but then again, I'm used to the original, having listened to it for years. But in the end, the new U2 version is a good one, and a keeper! What do you think?

Great song! It puts the U2 spin on the original while respecting the original. I really like it.
