So yesterday we had a Phil Spector-influenced song…

How about an actual Phil Spector song? “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)” by Ellie Greenwich, Jeff Barry, and Phil Spector, sung by (a quite young) U2:

According to Rolling Stone (2010), if you’re looking for the best rock ‘n’ roll Christmas song of all time look no farther because you’ve just heard it. And if it reminds you of “Be My Baby” or “Da Doo Ron Ron” you have a good ear, because those were written by the same three songwriters.
