We went shopping today and as I was waiting for Hubby to purchase a gate latch for our neighbour, I tuned into the radio.
It’s December 1st and the Christmas songs were blaring out over the airwaves. I must admit it was nice to hear an orchestrated version of Sleigh Bells, but after the news bulletin (which was the same as two hours and an hour previously, and as it turned out an hour later) they got into the ‘Heavy Stuff’, and quite honestly all that jingling jangled my nerves and I switched off.
When we were on the boat, we would frequent one particular store who only appeared to have the one Christmas tape which drove me nuts, so heaven knows the effect it had on staff. Wizard, Wham and Slade bombarded our eardrums on entry and seemed to boot us up the backside when we left. I think in the three Christmases we were liveaboards the same segment seemed to be playing every time we went.
Don’t get me wrong, I love some of the Christmas music, but in my old age think I prefer choirs singing carols compared to the noise and thumping of popular music.
We don’t seem to have many new or original Christmas songs, and the latest trend is to blend two favourites into one.
I liked this when I first heard it way back in 2013 as it was, finally, something ‘new’.
I like the video with this one too……………… cue Cute!!
