Another Christmas, Another Holiday Charity Single From The Killers

The use of Luke Perry in the video for the Killers' new Christmas single "¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!"? Pretty classy. Too bad there's not a scene where he boinks Shannen Doherty upside down on a cactus. But how does the song itself rate against the previous three years' worth of holiday jams from the Las Vegas band?

So far "A Great Big Sled" is in the lead. I dunno, maybe because it was their first one. Something about it still sounds so joyous all these jingle bells later. "Don't Shoot Me Santa" kinda bit. (And by kinda, I mean it was completely Z-grade.) As for last year's, "Joseph, Better You Than Me," it was...strange.

I'm placing "¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!" at #2, behind "A Great Big Sled." Watch and see what you think:

"¡Happy Birthday Guadalupe!" was made available today—on World AIDS Day— digitally via the (RED) campaign.

    it's decent. I think you are right about it being second - though there was something magnificent that i liked about Joseph. Thank god it's finally out...

    Can't help wondering if they're collecting non-album holiday singles for a nice big no-effort christmas cd in 2022?

    (That and, you know, aids really sucks.)
