Retro Video Unit (12/13/13)

I had hoped to find something Christmasy, in the vein of previous selections "Fairytale of New York" and "Christmas in Hollis." I was really hoping for a video of "Christmas Wrapping" by The Waitresses, but there doesn't seem to be one. There are all kinds of fan-made videos, which I find to be just too weird to contemplate in any depth.

So we'll have to go in a different direction. Some bands merit revisiting, so today we have another song from Blondie, "Dreaming" from their 1979 album Eat to the Beat. I've always had a thing for bands with keyboards, and I also believe that Clem Burke is one of the best rock drummers ever.
