More Christmas Music Videos (or Music Videos in General)

First up is Paul McCartney's goofy Wonderful Christmastime. Yes, the film quality is that bad and even on the new Rhino collection The McCartney Years, it isn't much better.

Sitting down and watching a lot of the videos on The McCartney Years collection was a lot of fun. From some of the early ones made very cheaply, the simple yet good "Mull of Kintyre", some of the more experimaental ones like "Coming Up", its a neat collection of videos and performances through Paul McCartney's career include extras live his performance of "Let it Be" at Live Aid and his Superbowl halftime performance. Rhino has been doing a lot of good video collections like Peter Gabriel's Play, Devo's The Truth About De-Evolution, and others. There's a lot of music video collections out there, some no longer in print. This link is to a music video on DVD page I've set up on the Magrathea Amazon AStore. There's still a few that have not yet been collected on DVD, such as Kate Bush and Thomas Dolby. Maybe someday they will....

Back to the Christmas Music videos, though, for this one by The Ramones!

And then there's a young Greg Lake with his big Christmas hit...
