I love Greg and that track. When I was younger it was Greg's 'I Believe in Father Christmas' and Roy Wood's festive classic that were my favourite songs at Christmas. Greg's song is quite an alarming tune for the season, a bit incongruous, which is probably why I loved it. There aren't many scary Christmas tracks out there. It also helped that it featured this from Prokofiev -
"All I want for Xmas" is a favorite! The whole album is good.
Takes me back to December 2000, I'm in my mum's green Renault wearing my Pokemon Jumper (imported from Japan!) singing out-loud to this album in a squeaky voice through the cheap and tacky stereo system.
Oh my those were the days... Where physical copies of music was still the norm and mobile phones were mobile phones
Timeblue: Not one but TWO Bev vids! We are indeed honoured!

orioles70: working from home has it perks, I noticed the birds were unusually noisy and sure enough - there is a rather large owl sitting in the tree just outside my dining room. Can't tell if he's waiting for prey or taking a nap.

BSJ: Very cool. For us, normally when all goes still, it means a hawk is hanging around.

Timeblue: Woke up the other day to a pile of sparrow feathers (minus the body...) our local sparrowhawk must have been hungry.
