Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)

Hey, at camp I was going through my friends iPod and I saw some U2 song and one of them was Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)

I have NEVER heard it before and it was never on any of their albums but it is (I think) one of their best songs they've done...

This song is a cover. The original was done by Darlene Love (and is co-written by Phil Spector) and appeared on A Christmas Gift For You (according to some the best Christmas album ever). U2's version originally appeared on the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas (with all proceeds supporting the Special Olympics).
They also shot a video for this song.

This song would be number 1 if it was released at xmas and would coin in extra cash for the charity. LETS START A CAMPAIGN!!Its a great version and such a bouncy tune. I listen to it all the time and reminds me of xmas (obviously) which is a time of year i love as it has a happy vibe

Oh no no no... it's cheesey and awful like all Christmas songs, except New York Fairytale by the Pogues.

Agreed it's a good cover.... it's annoying if you listen to it too often, but it works if you listen to it at christmas only ^^

Don't worry baby, it's gonna be all right. Uncertainty can be a guiding light...

B's voice is really strong on that...that might be one of the reasons I like it so much. Live version is cool too (only played once)...they could re-release it as a single with the live version as the b-side, that would be cool.

I think Bono should get 10 other bands to make a CD for the RED campaign around Christmas time


Not like the Band Aid thing but like one song per band...
