It's Not Like Christmas

I just stumbled upon this on the I-tunes store and thought the previews sounded pretty great so I bought it. It’s from 2006 and it’s basically a compilation abum of some pretty great bands (a lot of which I have never heard of) covering some famous Christmas songs and some originals too. I love Christmas (maybe even more than I love Halloween) and while we are still a good two months away I really just had to have this! I don’t know there’s just something about Christmas that makes me feel so happy and peaceful. Anyways, here’s the tracklist and some samples:

1. Duels – “Do You Hear What I Hear?”

2. Iain Archer – “Little Drummer Boy”

3. David Ford – “Have Yourself A Bitter Little Christmas”

4. The Late Greats – “Sleigh Ride”

5. Ingo Star Cruiser – “Just Like Christmas” (feat. Gaby Fröden)

6. Amusement Parks On Fire – “The Day It Snowed” (feat. Leila Moss)

7. Duke Special and David Ford – “Of Whoredom and Falconry”

8. Emmy The Great – “Christmas In Prison” (feat. Lightspeed Champion)

9. 747s – “Blue Christmas”

10. Amazing Pilots – “White Christmas”

11. Swimming – “In Dulci Jubilo”

12. The Joseph and Mary Chain – “The Twelve Days of Christmas”

13. Minuteman – “Last Christmas”

14. Envelopes – “Pink Christmas”

15. El Perro Del Mar – “Oh! What A Christmas”

16. Electric Soft Parade – “The Friday Before Christmas”

17. Matt Harding – “Purple Snowflakes”

18. Sketches For Albinos – “Let It Snow”

A Flock of Seagulls

I know this isn’t exactly anything new but I love this song. I used to hate 80’s music with a passion. I can’t figure out why. I remember having a conversation once with my dad. We had agreed that the 60’s were amazing. The 70’s were good too, but the 80’s and 90′ were terrible for music. I guess I must have just been unwilling to give 80’s music a real go. Luckily, over the past few years I have learned to love 80’s music. I still think the 90’s were terrible, with a few exceptions. But yeah, anyways, here’s my song of the week by A Flock of Seagulls.
