June Music Blogathon - Day 13

A song that I used to love but now hate.

Like others, I think hate might be too strong a word but in my case it is a record that meant one thing and now represents another.

Come December, I would never start to think Christmas was imminent until I heard the first playing of Merry Xmas Everybody. That would usually be after my birthday on the 13th. But over the years in an effort to try and jolly things along and create as much xmas hysteria as early as possible I started to hear it earlier and earlier. By the time we came to France you would get the first hearing by early November if not before. Bloody ridiculous! And so now I don't want to hear it at all because it represents ever more commercialism of Christmas as the first place you will hear it will be a supermarket.

Bah Humbug!

Merry Xmas Everybody


  • Oh God, Yes!
    Just about every bloody Christmas song ever!
