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.

It really says something special when a comedic take on a Christmas song can be a great example in it's own right.

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 :)

While this is a great song and sketch, the reality is that a lot of Jews DO celebrate Christmas, at least as a cultural holiday. And lest Christians forget, Christmas celebrates the birth of a Jew as well.

Props to Steven Gold for capturing the Spector/Wrecking Crew wall of sound. No question that Darlene Love would have to sing it. Now, I'm gonna make a reservation at Shanghai Gourmet for dinner! It's Dec 24, my Christmastime.

Darlene Wright, you are earning a total of $5,000,000 worldwide, which is so low!! lol You were born July 26th, 1941 in Los Angeles, California; you are currently 78 years, 4 months, and 8 days old.
