Nicotine- “Last Christmas”
I posted this last year, but who cares. Here’s a little holiday cheer from the Nicotine boys. Note: drugs are bad for you. (myspace)
Asobi Seksu- “Merry Christmas”
ELLEGARDEN- “Santa Claus (Live)”
So, who still believes in Santa? There’s a part of me that never believed. Probably because I saw my mom stuff presents under the tree before I went to bed. (myspace)
the pillows- “Jinguru Beru ga kikoeru”
Here’s an oldie from the pillows. “I can hear jingle bells!” (myspace)
Hong Kong in the 60s- “Winter Symphony”
L’Arc~en~ciel- “Hurry X’Mas”
I’ve grown to hate L’Arc~en~ciel, but this was the only video I could find with cigar-smoking Sandy Claws.
Ryuichi Sakamoto- “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence”
Let’s end this with one of the more popular Christmas songs from Japan. Both Utada Hikaru and FACT sampled “Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence” on their latest albums. I was kind of surprised the original didn’t have lyrics, silly me.
No poll this week. I hope you all have a peaceful holiday season.
