Jingle Bells!

Sorry, sorry; I promise not to use this icon again until Advent but what can you do when Bob Dylan has released a Christmas album? Only out yesterday and it's on You Tube already.



Try it, if you want to punish your eardrums (I'm a fan!). This clip contains possibly the worst version of Oh Little Town of Bethlehem I've ever heard. I can't see this album replacing the Phil Spector Christmas Album



or my favourite, We Three Kings by The Roches. All royalties from Christmas in the Heart are going to charities. Rather than buy it, I'll just be giving money straight to the Salvation Army as usual.

So, apart from *real* Christmas music (The Messiah, carols), what gets you Christmassy? Bing Crosby singing White Christmas? We're Walking In The Air from The Snowman? Or possibly, Silent Night by the Dickies.
