Darlene Love! This is a treasure. It’s as if a piece of lost Specter/Crystals mana had been found. Animation is great as well.
Darlene Love’s voice is the authentic power that drives the whole thing. I would have liked it if they’d given her a full screen credit with a picture.
My animated series idea has a character based on a friend of mine who is Jewish, and and if I ever got the chance, as a little joke, I would love to play this during a scene just after Christmas where the streets are happy and he gets some alone time after the craziness of being with his friends.
Glad this is still posted as I'm still enjoying it 15 years later! Played through a mono speaker (like a Spector song was intended), Darlene Love and the band make this arrangement sound even better. A lot of people may not realize that the video is black & white and has Darlene with 2 other singers as a throwback to her time on Shindig with the Blossoms, right at the end of her 1st Spector work. Letterman called Darlene the Queen of Christmas, and thank goodness she's still cheerful and going strong :)
