12 Songs of Christmas - Song #10

From the “Didn’t see THAT comin’” department comes the Cocteau Twins' cover of “Frosty the Snowman” from 1993 (they also did “Winter Wonderland” on the same EP, but nothing can save that piece of dreck). This is actually one of those Christmas songs I hate, but somehow Elisabeth Fraser salvages it.

This amateur video has paired the song with a gallery of Bill Watterson’s wonderfully warped “Calvin & Hobbes” strip, snowman edition.
