An Annual festive treat - and I use the word loosely - here at Soccernet (although I've never attempted it under the watchful auspices of ESPN TV so it remains to be seen how long it will last this year); welcome to the Billy Blagg Advent Calendar of Christmas Songs.
I do this every year to staggering apathy and almost universal indifference, but to some, this thread is as vital as three points on Boxing Day. So what better way to respond to the annual indolence, but to do it all again? To fans of the feature - welcome bacck!
25 days, 25 Christmas songs; Some crackers, a few chestnuts and a handful of Turkeys, from the good to the bad via as an obscure a route as possible.
Along the way, if you can find me a good (or BAD) Christmas song that I haven't heard - and believe me you will have your work cut out - then email me at email@example.com and you may be invited round to Blagg Acres for a festive eggnog or two.
Day 1 - 'It's Christmas all Over Again' - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers
I don't want everyone sitting around looking miserable just because it's the twelfth month and, like me, you're out of work and can't afford a sock to hang, let alone anything to put in it, so what better way than to rock out with Tom and friends on this seasonal stormer
'Long distance relatives / Ain't seen 'em in a long, long time / I kinda missed 'em / I just don't wanna kiss 'em'
Driving drums, plenty of bells and a nice finish as Tom lists what he wants Santa to bring this year make this a good opener to any festive CD. The party starts here!
