Christmas Songs ,,,
« on: December 10, 2009, 10:15:50 AM »
Dear Mr Thunder Moose

Given the radio waves are full of Christmas songs, I was thinking over a sage bit of advice my old man gave me .. he said if you wanna be rich write a great christmas hit as it gets played over and over and over again each year ..

It occurs to me, you must have had a crack at writing a Christmas choon for a starlet or two ? .. got anythin you can share with us festive frosties ?

If not, whats your festive song of choice ...

ELP/Greg Lake (I believe in father christmas), Slade (merry christmas everybody), Pogues (Fairy tale in New York) or SirCliff (Mistletoe and Wine)  :D
... it was like watching a peach jelly f##k a steel drum ..  :lol:

Slade (merry christmas everybody)
That's my ringtone around this time of year. I snipped out just the bit where Noddy shouts "IT'S CHRISTMAAAAAAAAAS!!!!!!!" and put it on my phone. :lol:
I bet people LOVE being around you....... :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:  :mrgreen:


Think I might do that myself!!!

I'll share my favourite - Frazier Chorus "Christmas Every Year".  Can't understand why it was never released! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7gbY-ukwdM

And of course here in Norway it's impossible to get through the holidays without exposure to the auto-tuned voices of the mighty Boyzvoice's "Let Me Be Your Father Christmas":

Pains me to say it, but I have had an Xmas number 1. It was no 1 in the UK for a month and sold over a million copies.  ;)

Some might say I got a bunk up coz it was an X Factor song, but an Xmas number 1 is an Xmas number 1 however you grab it. Ask Iron Maiden! :lol:

It should not pain you - it is something to be applauded I say - it was still in the early days of the unstoppable tabloid crap generator that the franchise seems to have become (IMHO) and not a bad song either.  :)

But, to be fair, there is a huge gulf between a Xmas Number 1 and a Xmas song....not a sleigh bell to be heard in the Chrimbo number ones these days.

So I reckon the question still hangs - about you penning a genuinely festive foot-tapper.

It pains you ? .. raise a glass I say.

But as Pedor says.. my question is really about a festive type song.. you know.. sleigh bells, snow, chestnuts and open fires kind of thing ?
