The Twelve Plays Of Christmas: Day Eight

I can still remember the first time I heard this on the radio, thinking 'God, this is a bit dire, who thought this was a great Christmas song?' then as it progressed thinking 'Oh, it's got a really good beat an...what did she just say?!'

It's now become one of the classic Christmas songs. How did they get away with it?

Nah. "Once upon a Christmas Song" by Geraldine, which I heard for the first time yesterday is the Xmas song of the year. Although it came out last year.

I rushed out straight away and bought it. On Amazon download. I could hardly wait to get home and play it.

Funny that. I thought it was crap too when it was first released. Now I look forward to it every year.

Your first impressions were right. Another bloody harp with his sentimental reminiscing about the Auld Sod (while living in London, natch). Wonder if they rattled any tins for NORAID while they were there?

Loved it at the time, love it still.
Came across Shane during the summer, sadly he looked like he would not be able to function without his minders. He asked me if I knew who he was (nicely) so I replied "Pogue mahone".

Oh, that it good! As is 'That'll Be Christmas' by Thea Gilmore.
