"It doesn't often snow at Christmas", originally recorded by Pet Shop Boys for their free 1997 Club Christmas card has been included on a fund-raising album, "Elton John’s Christmas Party", a collection of Elton John's favourite Christmas party songs. The album is available exclusively at Starbucks Company-operated stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at starbucks.com. (At present only buyers in the USA and Canada can buy the album online.)
The new compilation contains 21 songs, and Starbucks and Universal Music Group will donate $2 for every CD sold to support the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
Other artists featured on the album include U2, Rufus Wainwright, Outkast and Kate Bush. Visit the official Elton John site for details of how to buy the album online.
