2012 Christmas countdown in songs: 9 – Boots
To mark the countdown to Christmas, every day we will feature a festive song. From the well-known to the more obscure, each tune is sure to help you to get into the Christmas spirit!
Boots – The Killers
Christmas is all about family and tradition. The Killers certainly know this: they have released a Christmas song every year since 2006. Back in 2010 The Killers were on hiatus, yet they still came together as a family to produce the single Boots. Continuing with the family theme, the song opens with dialogue from the classic Christmas film It’s A Wonderful Life. Brandon Flowers’ soothing vocals makes the listener reminisce about spending Christmas with the family, whilst the music incorporates a mixture of traditional bells, guitars and drums. The Killers have now released this year’s Christmas song, I Feel It In My Bones. All proceeds will go to charity, so buy, buy, buy!
