Seasons Greetings!

'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.

Happy Christmas
Found this on Christmas Eve in a quiet, reflective moment, how very apt. Thanks for enriching my life with your music, it never fails to raise my spirits. What a sadder, poorer place the world would be without U2 in it. Much love to you and yours at this time of year and always. XXXX

great christmas song
I wanted to join RED last year. I am living in the Netherlands so it was not possible. I love this song.

Beautiful!
I've always felt that the Edge was essentially a Christmassy man- this proves it! Listening amidst frozen pipes in the Scottish Highlands, beautiful. Please give this a more widespread release. B-side to the first single from that album ye've been brewing on the qt?!!

Delicate
This is a very subtle and slightly tribal version of Lake's song. Sparkling guitar sound by Edge & Bono: you still got it, nice nuance!
suncemojemalo - 24 December, 2009
Love it
Edge's guitar, Bono's voice... mmmmm
