Every year at this time I look forward to The Killer’s Holiday song. They have released a Christmas charity single every year, since 2006, in support of Product Red, which has the noble goal ending HIV transmission in Africa.
The songs often have a melancholia that resonates with me. This year’s “Joel the Lump of Coal” is in that vein and I just love it. Check out the adorable video and feel free to skip over (5:20) the Jimmy Kimmel intro. His cheesy schtick is thankfully absent on the audio single.

The Killers’ Christmas single marks the beginning of the holiday season for me.
