I downloaded it 2 nights ago, cuz I had never seen the video.

I can't remember who it is here, but somebody's got a gif in their sig of Bono winking at the camera, sometime in the JT era.... Now I know where that delicious bit of film came from! And his voice at the beginning?..... "Baby... this Christmas, please come home." Guh!!!

I'd actually like to hear their take on some other Christmas tunes, as well. Does anybody know if others exist - and where I could find them?

You know what's funny? The other night, I had an uncontrollable urge to turn the TV on to Much More Music. A Bon Jovi song (urgh) was ending. However, I endured the final few seconds of the song because I knew I was compelled to turn the channel on for a reason. And then, I swear on my life, "It's Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" came on. It scared the shit out of me! Similar things have happened before.

I think I have some sort of built in U2 radar.

...

ANYWAY, I love the song! It's not mindblowing, but it's a heck of a lot better than listening to some other inane Christmas tune.

God, I heard it in the grocery store the other day!

I just about forgot what I had come in the store to buy when I heard it.

I don't want anything U2 has done to ever become muzak.

Anyway, I love the video - really quaint.

It's on one of the Very Special Christmas albums. I don't remember which one though...I checked the CD out from the library and burned it off, plus Run DMC's Christmas in Hollis and a few others. Classic, I tell you.

It's from the first Very Special Christmas album. Since all proceeds of that album go to charity I urge everyone to buy a copy. Many good Christmas songs on it (including Bruce Springsteen, Run DMC, Eurythmics, Pretenders, etc.)

yes the first one (it's the one with the red cover) is by far the best.

I abhor most Christmas albums, but this sounds good.

I love this song.

Flippin heck I have lost count of how many times I have answered this question. I thought the queries about this thread had turned into a pinned megathread.
