Merry Xmas Everybody - the schmaltzy Xmas video thread

Sorry Pooh I’m not getting drawn into a difference of opinion of what you consider to be music and what I think it is on a Christmassy thread.

If RATFM have sold a Million records then I’ll gladly hold my hands and apologize to you and them. I’m sure it will come as no surprise to you that I won’t be making it a Million and One :lol:

I will also admit that Pink Floyd did sell out when they reverted to using the shock factor on The Final Cut :twisted: . I, along with several thousand other diehard Floyd fans groaned when they released the single :twisted: :twisted: just as we did when ‘’Another Brick’’ was released as single :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: .

Time to back off and agree to disagree I think, we are never going to reach middle ground on this issue and for the final time I’ll admit that’s more my fault than yours :roll: . I’m a stubborn old git who will only listen to Musicians that I grew up with. I don’t understand modern music and have absolutely no interest in it. There are very few groups left from my era and in the state I’m in at the moment I wouldn’t put money on me outliving any of them but if I do and my last remaining favourite shuffles off before I do that for me will be the day the music died :cry: .

On reflection I was a bit hard in my attack on music I don’t understand :oops: so I’m grateful to Pooh for calling a truce 8)

To show how grateful I am I’ve been out and got some mistletoe and I’m waiting for you Pooh to make up with me properly :lol: :lol: :lol:

To join in with getting back to the Christmas spirit my offering features the amazing voice of Darlene Love and Phil Spector’s unique Wall of Sound.

It doesn’t matter what time of year it is whenever I hear The Wall of Sound I always think of CHRISTMAS

Weird thoughts keep coming into my head at the moment. Uncontrollable thoughts and grotesque images so unspeakable it’s frightening.

As soon as I’d written RATFM this SUPERSTAR from the 1980’s came into my head. I have a horrible feeling I’m becoming a very sick person :cry: :cry: :cry:

This has nothing to do with Mariah Carey being absolutely drop dead gorgeous and I'm sorry but I've been doing the inserty thing ...... (making the long link into one word) all day and using my left hand to do it ....I'm too tired now but it is a cracking Christmas tune.....

It doesn't interest me, either :lol:
But the song's quite catchy, isn't it?

Thanks, Morty! :D
Sorry about that outburst before :oops: I was just so annoyed; youtube does this sort of thing all the time :roll:

As Christmas songs go I have to admit that I think it’s pretty good. It reminds me very much of Phil Spector’s Wall of Sound but I think you might too young to remember that sound Cheery :D

Have a listen to this http://fliiby.com/file/139046/gk8exy3nkx.html and you’ll hear a good example of a very unique style of music 8)

What outburst :D .......That wasn’t a forum outburst :lol: ...... I thought you made a good point and I’ve experienced the same thing time and time again. It’s very frustrating and as the word Sony was mentioned it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if they didn’t have something to do with it :twisted:

Hope you have a great Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

You might have a crap Xmas this year Morty , but I reckon it'll be a lot better than Phil Spectre's. :twisted:

Yep better than Phil Spector’s but not as bad as you think. My 3 daughters are grown up and live miles away so I’ll miss them for sure.

It’ll be my first Christmas without a very special Lady and the first one with the aftermath of a stroke but I have a lot of very good friends who will be around to support me.

There are a lot of people worse off than me as I’ve found out on this forum so I will be making the most of every minute. As far as I can see the only time I’ll be on my own over the entire festive season is Christmas day evening and as I’ve met some very nice people on this forum I’ll be having a look in and seeing if there’s anyone around.

And if the worst comes to the worst there’s always the 1972 Morecambe and Wise Christmas Show to watch on telly :oops: ......... Wanders off to find an Emoticon of a man jumping off a tall building.

Aww! :cry: You can't do better than a M&W Xmas Special though Morty - especially if they have THIS on it

Anyway - need a Xmas hit but haven't got a Xmassy song? Just do what Frankie Goes to Hollywood did and hang a nice ballady love song onto a nativity-inspired kitsch-arty spoof video and no probs - straight in :lol:

It's a pretty crap video this but I think it's Holly Johnson dressed up as the virgin on the donkey.... Yeah I know - but really look at it and tell me it's not! If that's a girlie she hit every branch of the ugly tree as she fell out of it :twisted:
