Christmas Music...

is playing everywhere.

You can't go in a shop without hearing Noddy Holder screaming out "It's Chriiiiissstmaaas" and I've lost count of the times I've heard Wizzard wishing it was christmas everyday or indeed The Jacksons telling us about Frosty The Snowman's happy disposition.

Don't get me wrong I don't mind a bit of Christmas music but when it's been on repeat everywhere since 1st november it does start to piss you off ever so slightly!

Still there are a couple of Christmas tunes I don't mind hearing again and again. One being Wham's Last Christmas which always brings back memories of my primary 6 school disco and the boy who bought me the single for Christmas and the orignal (and definitely the best) version of Do They Know It's Christmas.

Then of course there is the best Christmas song ever written which I will never ever get fed up hearing and which would make it into my top ten favourite songs of all time and that is the fantastic Fairytale of New York which still gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it.

It is the most amazing piece of storytelling and if you've never heard it (how fucking sad would you need to be not to have heard it?) then go and find it on itunes or similar and listen to it right now.

You are seriously telling me you had never heard that song before??? Do they not have Christmas music in the States?? Lol! Jeez woman! What can I say? I have Irish blood in my veins from all sides of my family! Maybe it's my drunken Irish heritage that makes me like the song! If you struggle to understand what they're saying I hate to think what you'll be like trying to talk to us Scots in the flesh especially with a drink in us!!

Call me a sad bastard too then...I never heard of it either, but will embark upon a quest to purvey a facsimile of aforementioned lyrics...

IOW...I'll go see if I can find it somewhere..

Hope you lot had a great Xmas...ours was nice and quiet for a change, just the two of us and the dogs.

Ah, okay, now I know the song...I saw it playing on Top of the Pops for the first time ever, just a couple of days ago. There was just Kirsty and whats-his-face sitting on stage, looking a damn site older and uglier than when the song was first released (do a search on Google and you'll be able to view the video)...kewl song, but I can understand how Lee could be confused by the lyrics... :-)
