It’s Chriiiiistmas!!!

The other day at work, the topic of what the greatest Christmas Record Ever (!) is came up.

“Fairytale of New York” was mentioned, as was Slade’s “Merry Xmas Everybody”, Wizzard’s “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” and Shaky’s “Merry Christmas Everyone”.

My suggestion, which drew some blank looks, was “A Christmas Gift For You from Phil Spector”. Nobody said it had to be a single, or that it had to be by someone who wasn’t a mad-haired murderous gun-toting lunatic genius.

Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without at least one airing of something from, and it’s official, The Greatest Christmas Record ever, so here’s one which is often shamefully overlooked in favour of more well-known ditties:


Darlene Love – Marshmallow World

More tinselly soon.
