Gen Y bitching about Baby Boomers again...
Missed Santa Baby, there...
Bonnie and I were listening to a Pandora Christmas station laste weekend and sure enough this was the playlist, very noticeable because of the repetition. Which got us to thinking about the "new" original (not remakes or reinterpretations) Christmas standards, if there have been any, since the fifties, particularly from the eighties on. Pickings are pretty slim, but I did manage to come up with a few that at least get occasional radio play this time of year.
The list so far:
Band Aid - Do They Know It's Christmas? great song, thought provoking
Greg Lake - I Believe in Father Christmas a personal favorite, great song (and a mini Prokofiev revival) and a call for less commercialism at Christmas - winner all round
Waitresses - Christmas Wrapping
Elton John - Step Into Christmas
Wham - Last Christmas
What would you add to the list?
