2010 Advent Calendar Day 20: U2, “I Believe In Father Christmas”

I always found the original Greg Lake version of “I Believe in Father Christmas” a little too bombastic and over produced, so when I came across this U2 version of the song, done for the (RED) campaign, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. Bono’s vocals are mostly restrained and The Edge goes with a light touch on his guitar to create a more intimate version of the song.
