A week today, it’ll be Christmas.
Are you excited yet?
I believe that sane people have a favourite Christmas song, that gets you all smiling and happy and worked up like you were as a child.
Of course, I’m not sane. I have two.
The two are “All I Want For Christmas is You” by Mariah Carey, but only when I’m drunk, as it makes me dance like a loon. When I’m not drunk, or in a more melancholy mood (and certainly my favourite) is “One More Sleep Till Christmas” by Kermit The Frog.
Here’s a youtube video of it, which some cock has decided to splice with some Sonic footage. Just close your eyes, and listen.
Seriously. “One More Sleep Till Christmas” gets me in a Christmassy mood, as mum used to ban me from watching The Muppets Christmas Carol until it was Christmas Eve (apart from the time I was “researching” my role as Scrooge in Ysgol Pen-Y-Bryn’s 1994 Panto. I fucking ruled – though aptly supported by Sibz’s role as Tiny Tim). I heard it last night, and I’m officially excited. Well, as much as a 23 year old who’s planning to spend the festive period drinking obscene amounts of alcohol.
What your favourite Christmas song, and why (if there’s a story behind it)?
