Lumps of coal are so 2005. This year, stuff a stocking with Billy Idol’s Happy Holidays (out Dec. 7), as the “White Wedding” singer is covering such Christmas classics as “Frosty the Snowman,” “Silver Bells,” “God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen,” “Silent Night,” and “Merry Christmas Baby.” Want a sample of what his yuletide tunes will sound like? Head to his MySpace page, where a raucous, barroom rendition of “Run Rudolf Run” is currently streaming. Plus, Idol has made videos (complete with faux snow!) for “Jingle Bell Rock,” “White Christmas,” and “Happy Holiday.”
Talk: Bing or Billy?
