Favourite Christmas songs
« on: December 21, 2018, 11:51:05 pm »
There loads of crap Christmas songs but there are some good ones, ie:

David Bowie and Bing Crosby - Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy (actually I only really like the part that Bowie sings)

Jona Louie - Stop the Calvary

The Farm - All Together Now

Bzzzt!  "Stop The Cavalry" not a Christmas song, says Jona Lewie, who ought to know.

The Farm record is never played as a Xmas song, probably because it doesn't have bells in it.

My guilty pleasure is Johnny Mathis' "When A Child Is Born", even with the kitsch spoken bit.  "Black...white...yellow"  :facepalm:
Never tell me the odds.

Yebbut Bruce Willis says Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie.

Actually I probably agree with Bruce on that one ... but Stop the Cavalry clearly IS a christmas song, and I'd like to see what %age of his royalties Mr Lewie would see without December being counted.

(It's my favourite, so I'm hardly going to reclassify it.)

The Bowie/Crosby thing is pretty fucking good too.

Probably Stop the Apartheid Fascists by Rory McLeod.  I known the title doesn't sound very  Christmassy but it does contain this great chorus:

And I'm dreaming of a black Christmas
With black snow blowing outdoors
'Cos a black kid asked me why
She's never seen a black Santa Claus

Between the Disney abattoir and the chemical refinery

Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses is a great chrimbo choon. The bass line is insane...

DH is the Christmas movie. I'm sure we'll work through the boxset over the hols (minus number five on account of the fact that it is shit), but DH1&2 are Christmas Eve traditions.
