Sunday Mails Mega Christmas Album!

Posted by Lex Fear on November 20, 2005

Today I bought a copy of the Sunday Mail (I wanted some easy reading and wasn’t up to the intelligent editorials in the Times or Independent). Enclosed in the magazine wrappers was a part one of a double CD: “The Mega Christmas Album”. I’m not that enthusiastic about the descendant of a pagan festival that is Christmas when the season is upon us, let alone middle of November. However I do enjoy listening to Christmas carols and their modern contemporaries.

So you can imagine my surprise and joy to find such festive hits as “Do Do Ron Ron” by The Crystals and “Build Me Up Buttercup” by the Foundations. Nothing better to get you in the Christmas spirit than a bit of Fontella Bass (Rescue Me). You can tell I’m already in the Christmas mood. Here is a run-down of the festive tunes as offered by the Sunday Mail:

1. YMCA – Village People – the carol singers favourite
2. Build Me Up Buttercup – Foundations
3. When Will I See You Again – The Three Degrees
4. We Are Family – Sister Sledge – great for that gathering to sing around the fire
5. Let’s Dance – Chris Montez
6. My Guy – Mary Wells
7. Do Do Ron Ron – The Crystals
8. Let’s Twist Again – Chubby Checker
9. Dancing In The Street – Martha Reeves – a Christmas classic
10. Rescue Me – Fontella Bass
11. I Will Survive – Gloria Gaynor
12. She’s A Lady – Tom Jones – nothing can stop Grandma from singing this one

I can tell you’re feeling Christmassy already!
