Christmas Number One
UK is cutting edge in many a way. Spatial Annotation Experiments is one. Christmas music is another. There hasn’t been a new Christmas song in the US since 1950, except for Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. American Christmas music is bland, traditional, and will drive you batty. Especially if you are Jewish, eating Chinese food and watching pre-VCR TV on Christmas Day with no presents or tree or anything else all your Gentile friends are revelling in!!
Ok, Anyway. Here in the UK, Christmas is a time of fierce battle on the airwaves, for the Christmas number one. And sometimes they’re decent enough to actually listen to without going on a shopping mall gun rampage. Slade, Paul McCartney, Band Aid. Indeed, there won’t be any snow in Africa this Christmastime!
