When the lovely Melaina over at Transatlantic Blonde was discussing her ultimate Christmas song this week, she tagged me in her post. Now I don’t usually take part in blog memes but, after listening to Xmas CDs in the office every afternoon since the beginning of the month, I just couldn’t resist this one. I’ve heard so much unusual Christmas music lately that selecting a favourite from it all was always going to be tricky.
Should I go for an underplayed classic (Step Into Christmas by Elton John), a favourite in my office (We Wanna See Santa Do The Mambo by Big John Greer), or something with a little bit of extra ‘cheer’ (Fuck Christmas by Eric Idle)? One of my colleagues introduced me to the delights of the Psychobilly Christmas album this year, plus Topper found Nightmare Revisited (Kidnap The Sandy Claws by Korn!) and the somewhat more annoying Christmas Cats on Spotify. But, don’t worry, I won’t subject you to 30 seasonal songs sung by sampled felines. Instead, I shall share a wonderful winter warmer from Frisky & Mannish. Enjoy!
Rather than tag anyone in this post, I shall simply request that you leave a comment with your own ultimate seasonal tune, if you have one. There’s more to festive music than Wizzard and Slade, right? Happy Holidays to you all!
Even better than that, here's my 'seasonal' top ten:
Beth, that list is inspired 🙂
I do love “Baby it's Cold Outside” especially any version that says she will stay for 'one funny little cigarette more.' Yes the teenager in me still think marijuana reference are funny.
Darlene Love – Marshmallow World (from Phil Spector's Christmas Album).
Great track from a great album!
And yes, I believe Christmas SHOULD be a bit cheesy!
