Christmas Countdown

Well it's not Wednesday, but I can't resist posting another Christmas Countdown video. There are simply not enough weeks in December to get in all these brilliant Christmas videos!

So this one is such a classic. LOVE it. Regardless of the political message in it, the song is genius musically, if you ask me for my non-expert opinion. I'm pretty sure you could sing the phone book to this tune and still feel a tug on your heartstrings.

The best thing about this video from a shallow stand point is going through and seeing how many of the artists' names you still know. Frankie Goes to Hollywood, anyone? :-)

Plus, as I was considering posting this on a Wednesday it was a hoot hearing my daughters ask, repeatedly, "Is that one a girl? Is that one? What about that one?" No, no my dears. This was the 80's when men had seriously pretty hair.

Enjoy!

There are many obscure ones, indeed. Of course I have my favourites too! Some of them are still around. Some of disappeared into obscurity for sure.
