This song was recorded live in 1996 during the annual Almost Acoustic Christmas put on by the Los Angeles radio station KROQ. Along with being a great recording of a great song, Orbital throws a little Bon Jovi and Belinda Carlisle in the mix.

  1. I have a version of the same track as performed at the KITS Live 105 Not So Silent Christmas show in December 1996. Sound quality is good and the Belinda Carlisle samples come through more clearly than in the Satan single. Your version sounds excellent too, tho the volume level of some of the musical loops during the Carlisle bits is too loud in comparison (making it harder to hear the samples, especially the “yibyeboooobaby” part which I particularly fancy).
