A few months back, I wrote about JP, Chrissie & The Fairground Boys, the first non-Pretenders music of Chrissie Hynde's long, storied rock career. Anyone who knows me or reads my posts is fully aware of my longstanding Chrissie crush. She was my first and will be my last.
That damn JP got to her before me and then had the nerve to write an insanely beautiful album about their unrequited May/December love, just to pour salt in the wound. Their debut, "Fidelity!," is easily one of the best albums -- and love stories -- of the year, my rock heroine crushes be damned.
Well, just to prove that I can be the bigger man, I'm happy to present the video debut of "Christmas Soon." Consider it my holiday gift to you and my Christmas wish that Chrissie will dump that JP kid soon and sit under the mistletoe with me. I make a mean vegan egg nog.
