‘Tis the Season 2014 – The Killers style

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.

Check out The Killers’ previous Holiday singles by clicking on the Playlist in the upper left corner of the embedded video.

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