oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh… i did it. i put a youtube video on my blog and raised my Christmas cred by about 80 kajillion million. look at me go – i’ve got mad youtube skilz.
i debated and debated over the live aid version or the band aid video and as cool as the live aid version is, there’s no boy george, so the video it is.
i must say that after watching the video a few times – okay, really all it took was seeing a young paul young, and a young simon le bon, and a young sting, oh, and bono as a baby (you get the picture) – i really, really, really feel old. and i refuse to believe it has been over 20 years since this song came out. no way, jose.
and maybe it’s not so very Christmas-y to complain, i must – you can only get the bandaid version of this song from itunes if you purchase the entire now that’s what i call christmas album. i mean really, $16.99? and all i want is this one fantastic song? and while this song is entirely worth the price, i refuse to buy it on principle – oh, yeah, and i have no desire to let any Christmas song brit-brit sings cross the internet ocean onto my mac. i love and respect pippin far too much – how dumb is that, actually used my computer’s name.
