A Little Holiday Music

December 23rd, 2013 by Cobwebs

I was recently listening to the radio and was rather startled to hear a Cocteau Twins cover of “Frosty the Snowman.” I was even more startled to learn that it’s one of two Christmas classics they did, the other being “Winter Wonderland.” They were originally released on a (now out of print and selling for insane prices on eBay) two-track CD entitled “Snow,” and can also be found on the second volume of their singles collection Lullabies to Violaine.

Here’s “Winter Wonderland,” with a fan-made video:

And here’s a link to their version of Frosty (just audio over a static picture).

I’m glad I could make your holiday a little more surreal.
