Songs For Christmas XXII



This is the final Christmas songs post for this year, I don't know how many people are going to drop by here still looking for Christmas numbers, but anyway.

I would have done a couple of other posts but I have spent the last two days camped outside the post office to pick up parcels that the Postie couldn't deliver, only to get home and discover that in the meantime, the postie has put more red notes through the door to say that he/she (though 99% of posties I have ever come across are male) couldn't deliver parcels because no-one was in. This is not much of an exaggeration...

Anyway, here are the three final songs for Christmas. Glad so many of you have enjoyed these, this is all over for the next twelve months.

Stars -'Fairytale Of New York.' mp3

[Pogues cover. Yes, the Pogues' original is the best Christmas tune ever, and in the UK charts for the thousandth time, but posting it is just too obvious)

Pipettes -'White Christmas.' mp3

Teenage Fanclub -'Christmas Eve.' mp3

Merry Christmas to you all. The long-intended Aberfeldy review (the best gig of the year BTW) and my Top 75 albums will follow soon...
