It's Christmas eve! What are you waiting for? Invite an angel to your table or wrap your limbs around a loved one and do the spirit of the season right. If you know anything about Christmas in Japan you know that it's got more to do with making babies than last minute fried chicken and creamy white strawberry cakes! Here's Pizzicato Five with their ode to the eve, "Le 24 Decembre"

Back again with the next sassy addition to the 12 Days of J-Pop Christmas list! First off, let me just say I'm not gonna lie. I've never heard of sexy Japanese hip-hop trio Foxxi misQ, also known as "FQ" - apparently their name comes from the words "Foxy!" and "misc", short for "miscellaneous" which I guess makes perfect sense. Anyhoo, these ladies got it together, in a Destiny's Child kinda way, to stomp out a Christmas jam à la Wham or, shall we say, in the style of  Exile - J-Pop's all-male 14-member super group that made the Japanese version of "Last Christmas" oh so very popular. Check out the street sauce 'n' lip gloss video below and feel free to mash it up with Exile's smooth-as cover.
