Listen to Cyndi Lauper ft. The Hives "A Christmas Duel"

Best. Christmas. Song. Ever.

Listen to the totally unique teaming of '80s icon Cyndi Lauper and indie rockers The Hives. You can tell they had a blast doing it. This song really invokes memories of vintage Lauper. Just having fun and rocking out. Thank you for this. This is fantastic. (I got lots of questions about this though. How did this come about? It's so unexpected. More about that later.)

In a press release Cyndi and The Hives explained, “It may sound weird and come as a surprise to some, but we had to. It came to us. It landed in our lap and was way too good to shake or toss.  We knew we had to record it.  A sign if you will.” Cyndi Lauper offered “this goes to show even rat sideswipers can have a good Xmas too.”

And there you have it.
