17 Seconds Christmas Posts 2015: part 3


OK, so today for something a little more traditional.

Siouxsie and the Banshees covered the French Christmas carol for a b-side (or double A, if you prefer) for the 1982 single ‘Melt!’ This track can be found on the Downside Up 4CD compilation of their b-sides (which is definitely worth it), which can be found on iTunes.

This is a French TV performance from around late 1982, from when Robert Smith was in the band…

There’s an intersting Wiki entry on the song here.

…and as a bonus, from 2011, here is Tom Tom Club covering the song (I heard this for the first time this evening). This can be found on Amazon mp3
