A Christmas Countdown – Pet Shop Boys

Trust Pet Shop Boys to do Christmas with style. Originally recorded in 1997, this Christmas single perfectly captures the mood and flavour of a British midwinter.

In fact, if they did anything wrong, it was failing to release it as a single. It was only ever released as a promo and special fan club single. It got absolutely loads of radio play in 1997 and 1998. They performed it live on TV in 2000. And then they waited till 2009 to release it properly, and then it didn’t do very well. Things like that make me angry.

So, before I do anything violent… number two on our Christmas countdown: It Doesn’t Often Snow at Christmas.
