Video: Bob Dylan, Adeste Fidelis and Little Drummer Boy

Bob Dylan released Christmas in the Heart in 2009, and the world’s reaction was somewhere between ” . . .” and “WHAT?”

I have a confession, y’all: I usually can take or leave Bob Dylan, but I unironically love this record. There really is nothing more subtly glorious than him and his froggy croak of a voice powering through Adeste Fidelis:

From Jon Walker, the season’s (probably) hardest rocking cover of “Do You See What I See?” I’m not quite sure who’s singing with him but at least one of them sounds suspiciously like Tom Conrad, from Empires.

I don’t remember if alcohol was involved.” (Mr. Walker is currently on sabbatical in Costa Rica.)
