"The Twelve Days Of Christmas ... Day 10"

Good morning dear friends,

and a very merry Christmas to all of you! I'm not quite sure if you already are allowed to give Christmas greetings on the 24th where you are, but it's my blog and so I'll do it, right?

So the working year is over for me today, and a hell of a year it was, so thank God it's finally done! Looking forward to having a few days off until January 4th, I do hope it will turn out to be more or less relaxing.

And if Santa will bring you nothing else, here's to you one fine tune indeed, one of my all time favorites in fact. Turn the volume up now:


                          mp3: Basement 5 - 'Last White Christmas' (Peel Session Version '80)
Now, Basement 5 just have to win the award for the most grievously underrated band of all time, I often think! Isn't this song absolutely bloody fantastic?! If only someone could provide me with the full lyrics, I'll be eternally grateful! Here you get the Peel Session Version of 'Last White Christmas', in many ways better than the original version. Vocals no longer by Don Letts, but by Dennis Morris.

Two more days of Christmas to come, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, so you'll get two more great tunes, of course!

See you then, I hope .... party hard!

Dirk

We are an incestuous bunch... but no reason why we shouldn't all be posting this one. Well done, Dirk. Happy holidays to you, the Mrs. and Lil' Loser.

Bloody marvellous tune Dirk.
I've got an early start tomorrow and will probably be unable to check in, so here's wishing you and yours a happy, peaceful Christmas.
