12 Songs of Xmas: Billy Idol – Yellin’ At The Christmas Tree

santa_rock_starI love this one. It’s a great song in its own right – perfect Silly Season fodder. However, no official video was ever released for it, so some chap’s taken it upon himself to create one that looks like it was made with The Sims or something.

Thing is, it’s damn good. Links up to the music really well, has just the right level of humour and so on.

Billy Idol is easy to forget after his huge 80’s smashes. However, he’s gone on to keep making some quality albums and is surprisingly good live. Caught him at Download a few years ago as a friend wanted to go and see him. If he toured again, I’d pay for a ticket.

Not sure how official it was but I worked on that video, it was using video game characters and was part of MTV2’s video-mod series back in 2005.
not sure why it isn’t listed on the wiki page.


However official it was or wasn’t thanks for your efforts! Really good video!

I will however, take back my promise to buy a ticket if he tours. £45 for the Academy? Oof!
