Overview

VH1: The Big 80's Christmas rounds up 15 holiday songs from the decade, most of which are original compositions. Some of the highlights include David Bowie's collaboration with Bing Crosby on "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" and the Ramones' "Merry Christmas (I Don't Wanna Fight Tonight)," along with other noteworthy songs such as the Alarm's cover of John Lennon's "Happy Christmas (War Is Over)," Los Lobos' rendition of "Rudolph the Manic Reindeer," and Hall and Oates' "Jingle Bell Rock." A bit more fun and playful than your ordinary holiday collection, VH1: The Big 80's Christmas is primarily intended for anyone who remembers the '80s as being a strange yet charismatic decade, qualities this collection surely illustrates.
