Merry Christmas. Or “Happy Holidays” if you think that somehow wishing non-Christians a merry Christmas is supposed to be offensive.
I won’t share anything completely new here, but why not take a spin through the Christmas countdown from last year?
- 10. John Shuttleworth – The Christmas Orphan
- 9. Camouflage – Winter
- 8. Slade – Merry Xmas Everybody
- 7. Wham! – Last Christmas
- 6. Band Aid – Do They Know It’s Christmas?
- 5. Dusted (feat. Dido) – Winter
- 4. Röyksopp – Le Cantique de Noël
- 3. Erasure – God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
- 2. Pet Shop Boys – It Doesn’t Often Snow at Christmas
- 1. Saint Etienne – I Was Born on Christmas Day
You might also enjoy Erasure‘s Gaudete, which I shared a couple of weeks ago, or the review of their Crackers International EP from last week. Or Saint Etienne‘s lovely Through the Winter from a few days ago, or even Proper Chrimbo, which we revisited a day or two ago.
