Friday Nights Lost Video - Tuesday Christmas Song Edition

IF you guys dont mind, I would like to pull out some "different" Christmas songs in the veins of the Friday Video segment, starting with this one.

The Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping

The song is as much about a harried lifestyle and trying to make connections as it is about Christmas.

As talk-sung - almost rapped - by late lead singer Patty Donahue, this song depicts a hard-working single girl who resolves to sit Christmas out one year. This, as she laments her repeated and unsuccessful attempts to reconnect with a guy she met by chance the previous winter. But just as in A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life, a twist of fate and a little magical intervention restore our heroine's belief in the Christmas spirit, after all.

There is not an official video for this 1981 classic, but someone more savy than me pieced this together with some anime, and made it pretty cool. Enjoy!

Very uplifting song by the Waitresses. I liked the Love Hina video.

One of my favorite Christmas songs. Unfortunately, I heard it even in the grocery store the other day. Thanks, Stu!

Wow, Drew, you know about anime? I loved the animation in that video.
