I. Love. Chara. Her filthy doll-baby voice is so sweet it's like diabetes on icing and the lady is always serving quirky pretty face, face, face and turning out fierce fashions. At best her acoustic pop is catchy and anthemic, her hippy-dippy freak-flag never far from fully unfurled. Below, clocking in at the half-way point in the 12 Days of *J-Pop* Christmas countdown, I give you Chara performing alongside lithe-legged, high-heeled dancing Christmas gifts in her jazzy-ass video for "X'mas Spirits!"
Chara - "X'mas Spirits!"
