Blondie & Fab 5 Freddy “Yuletide Throwdown”
Blondie have dropped holiday song “Yuletide Throwdown.” Cowritten and performed with Fab 5 Freddy, it was originally released in 1981 as a free holiday flexi-disc by U.K. magazine Flexipop and Blondie subsequently released the track in February 1982.
What do you think? I’m a big Blondie fan and thought I had heard this before but I guess I hadn’t. It’s basically just a remix of “Rapture” with more rapping. I think the original version is more fun than the new one.

I like it! I agree the original flexidisc version is more fun.
This has been on YouTube and file sharing for years amongst fans. I guess they felt they needed to punch it up for an official release.
I like the cartoon on the cover too.

It reminds me a little of that song Debbie did with Iggy Pop for the Red, Hot & Blue compilation.
