"Can't we give ourselves one more chance?" Santastic 7 is about to drop down the chimney and into all your stockings, so here's a peep at the excellent mashup from djBC. Queen and David Bowie's 'Under Pressure' meets the sweet crooning of Smokey Robinson...and as the lyrics say:
Why can't we give love that one more chance?
Why can't we give love, give love, give love..?
'Cause love's such an old-fashioned word
and love dares you to care for
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves"
If that isn't a Christmas sentiment I don't know what is.
This includes footage from the rather strange public domain film 'Santa Claus' - no not the one with Dustin, this is a 1950s Mexican film with clockwork reindeer, mouth loudspeakers, ear antenna, dancing demonic dolls, castles in space and guest spots from Merlin and a demon called Pitch. But despite the oddness t has a real heart to it, as you'll see from the video.
