    My favourite christmas song - SPOILED!

    This is one of my favourite christmas songs...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzczoqLBWAY

    It's an all-time sing-along shanted party classic. Then I hear this...

    An utterly sterilised version. Why, WHY! do they do it?

    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    first of all, the second song isn't the same song as the first (Nat King Cole) right?
    I agree, his version of "the Christmas Song" is top notch. This other, so called 'Christmas song" and the performance of it is SO not Christmassy, so commercialized, etc.. etc.. Can I just say gag and vomit?

    by the way, Mole, thank you so much for your very kind pm. I am heeding your advice about not replying via pm, but I still wanted to thank you. I am doing well, the recovery is very slow. I am doing a little walking at home without the walker, (I live in a very small apartment.) The other things you asked about are all being taken care of. Thanks again.

    Sorry about the wrong link, now the orignal post has been edited to link to both the Slade original, and the Steps travesty.

    The Nat King Cole link is just another example of how the orignal was spoilt by Alexander O'Neil who sang the song and accompanied himself with a distant wailing that sounded like the worst shower karaoke.

    Steph, I'm glad things are moving in the right direction for you.

    I was always fond of The Title Theme to "Mickey's Christmas Carol" by Disney

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xW7LMu4aZlc
    "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
