Such great choices - particularly Lennon, The Pogues (and poor dear departed Kirsty McColl :( ) and my favourite, Tim Minchin (excellent choice, Morgan le Fay :thumb: ).

Now, Do You Hear What I Hear? It's only Whitney Houston back in the day when she could sing!

i am of the opinion that all christmas singles and the persons who perform them should be bloody shot.

it's all a cynical ploy to get money out of the public for inferior crap.

i especially refer to that fucking awful john lennon shit.

have you ever really listened to those so-called lyrics?? banal bollocks would be an understatement.


had my humbug moment and now i'm going to get pissed.

festive tidings!

Far from banal considering the time in which they were written. Sometimes music has to be appreciated in its historical context. Now go and get pissed :D

Most are. That why I chose Tim Minchin - he addresses how most normal people feel about christmas (see my sig for details ;) ), and all proceeds go to the National Autistic Society.

Most 'normal' people object to the commercialism of Christmas? I don't think so, most people just enjoy it.

good music needs no specific point in history to be put into context.

good music will always stand the test of time.

i'm afraid to say that i find that particular ditty of mr.lennons extremely mawkish.

it's just not a very good song,is it?


i'm quite partial to a song that makes me blub but it is not a good song nor do i like the over sentimentality of it.
i have never rated mr.lennon as a( decent) song writer--nor maccartney either.
together they were passable but apart they were just rubbish.

and now i've left it too late to get pissed.

bollocks.
