The Christmas Take-Over: "He said let's run And we'll have some fun Now before I melt away"
I'd never actually heard this track before a friend posted it on her Facebook page last week. And I couldn't be happier to have heard it. The Cocteau Twins remains a mysterious band to me. I own very little of their music, but I've never heard anything by them that I didn't find enchanting -- due in no small part to magnificent production, and Elizabeth Frazer's unabashedly playful approach to her vocals. I have not heard a Christmas song this year that has made me happier than this one.
