Countdown to Christmas: Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You (1981)

MTV's 1st Christmas video in 1981 was "Christmas is the Time to Say I Love You", by Billy Squier, who had a huge hit earlier in the year with "The Stroke". Unfortunately, Billy didn't score too many more hits after that, and faded from the scene within a couple of years. The video was shot at the MTV studio in New York, with Billy flanked by Nina Blackwood and the late JJ Jackson. You can find the rest of the gang, I'm sure. VH1 Classic has played this video in recent years, and that's where HolidayFavorites found his copy of the clip to upload to YouTube...........

Merry Christmas!
