'They said there'd be snow at Christmas...' A year ago the band recorded a cover of the Greg Lake classic 'I Believe in Father Christmas'.

The single was released in support of Product (RED), raising funds to fight killer diseases in the poorest countries.

This seemed like just the moment to bring back that very atmospheric video. Take a look.

Makes Me Happy
Thank you for posting the video again. And thank you Bono, Edge, Larry and Adam for covering this song. I was knocked out last year when it first came out and watched it over and over and over again. So glad to see it back this year. It's definitely the best version of the song that I have heard and seen. Thanks for the great year boys. Saw you in Vancouver and absolutely loved you, again!!!

Please put on iTunes
I also tried to join RED last year so I could buy this song, but it wasn't available to Canada. I love, love, love this song and would LOVE to be able to purchase it! (I'll have to check Starbucks in Canada to see if those CDs are available here....)

Feeling snow
This song and the "Winter" song both create the magical feel of snow falling. The music dances right into my ears melting my heart--but then I love what the northern climates bring and the unique beauty and fragility of snowflakes.

This is beautiful; and I normally don't like Christmas songs but this is an exception. Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry your music brings more joy to my life than you can ever imagine. And will do to my wedding as well. Halleluja! Sending you all love, joy and grateful thanks at Christmastime.

I love this song so much. I've been searching for it everywhere. Can you make this available on iTunes as a (red) product??? I bought the product (red) nano and this would compliment it well.
