Christmas songs

May they serve as an antidote to the pulp (Last Christmas, All I want for Christmas, Merry Christmas everyone, and the likes) played by the radio.

I didn’t know how to sort them, so I put them in a chronological order. All three are older than me…

“The power of love” by Frankie goes to Hollywood, 1982. The lyrics have probably little to do with Christmas, but the video does.

“2000 Miles” by The Pretenders, 1983. Once I heard this song played in Poland, it’s actually not very popular beyond the borders of United Kingdom. If you know what 2000 miles stand for and who’ll be back in Christmas time, you’re on a home straight. The official video, removed like many other clips from YouTube, can be found here.

“Do they know it’s Christmas” by Band Aid, 1984. The only really popular, but with a ear-catching beat and recorded in the good, hardly ever sung by drunk women.

Dear readers,

May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white!
