Advent Anthems: 14

It has been speculated that as Cameron boarded his private jet Merkozy was stood on the runway doing exaggerated hand gestures dressed all in white fur. Poignantly it began to snow, some of the flakes catching in its bizarre facial hair. Traces of this song could be heard above the roar of the propellers.

Perhaps the greatest Christmas song of all time, though apart from the church bells at the end (which could just as easily be wedding bells) it is more affectively than substantially Christmassy. Still as an homage to Continental drift I shall have it on repeat play all through today.


  1. It was Christmas number 1, and that makes it a Christmas song in my book. Same goes for "The Power of Love" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood - the video is a nativity tableau, ergo it is a Christmas song. Jon Morgan argues with me about this ALL THE TIME.

  2. I love the Frankie song and the video is uber-christmassy (rather than fake snow and white fur). Jon Morgan is a pedant. Like King Herod. Booooo.

  3. I know, right? Off with his head!

  4. We should go troll his blog with lists of Christmas songs that annoy him.
