Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses.
As soon as I here that in a shop or on the radio, Christmas is officially on the way IMO.
YMMV  ;)

Oh yes! So underrated it's a classic.

Very sad about Patty Donahue though...

"The Phil Spector - Christmas Album" Ah yes, for wallowing in nostalgia and indeed tearfulness for the days when life was fun....or at least the days when I was YOUNG.

For my depressed present, "A Christmas Message From A Hooker In Minneapolis" will do.

Back OT, pretty much all Christmas music is dreadful.

Chiron Beta Prime has a certain something...

And Loreena McKennitt singing God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is good enough that I can sometimes forget it should probably be counted as christmas music.

I love the Steeleye Span version, but I think you can't beat a male choir singing it in a cathedral or church.  The acoustics really add to the music.

Seconded, the choir at St Paul's today were superb with Gaudete this afternoon.

1.   The Raconteurs
2.   Franz Ferdinand
3.   David Gilmour
4.   The White Stripes
5=  Gotan Project
5=  KT Tunstall
7.   Pink Floyd
8.   La Roux
9.   Red Hot Chili Peppers
10. Jem

But with extra 16. Rage Against The Machine

I prefer the Kipper Family "version" though.

We're listening to Diana Krall's Christmas Songs as I type.

It's surprisingly lovely  :)

That does it for me.   But also as I've said elsehere I've been gripped by The Waitresses and Girls Aloud (You give me something that I'd never get from Santa Clause)

We are going through Mozart's symphonies in reverse order. I don't suppose we'll get beyond no. 40 tonight.
