Don't know why I haven't blogged much this week. Not much to say. Which is almost world-first. And it's not like there's nothing going on. Christmas shopping... family stuff... changing jobs a week from tomorrow... (bricking it...)
It's all been A Bit Much.
So instead of a proper post - Drumroll please! As promised, here are the results of my compilaion of a Winter-esque batch of music for my iPod to help me along the way as I bimble around town in a state of mild and disconcerting panic.
I'm excited. Are you? Let's begin:
1. The theme from a Box of Delights (which the internet tells me is by Victor Hely-Hutchinson)
2. A Camp - Silent Night
3. RJD2 - Silver Fox
4. Flevans - Smalll Room Syndrome
5. Aim - The Girl Who Fell Through The Ice
6. Goldfrapp - You Never Know
7. Rufus Wainwright - Poses
8. Donna Summer - Winter Melody (c/o Old Cheeser)
9. The Pretenders - 2000 Miles (c/o Doris)
10. Love Unlimited - It May Be Winter Outside (But in my Heart It's Spring) (c/o Old Cheeser again)
11. U2 - Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) (c/o JulaBerry)
12. Frost - Endless Love (Royksopp remix)
13. Yann Tierson - Comptine d'un autre été - L'après-midi (from the Amelie soundtrack)
14. Saint Etienne - I Was Born On Christmas Day
15. Scissor Sisters - Kiss You Off
16. The Pogues - Fairytale of Old New York (c/o Gareth et al)
17. The Cardigans - Great Divide
18. Barry Adamson - The Big Bamboozle
19. Massive Attack - Two Rocks And A Cup Of Water
20. Sébastien Tellier - La Ritournelle (Sven Love & Catalan FC Remix)
21. Quantic - Time Is The Enemy
22. The League of Gentlemen Christmas Special Theme
So there you have it. This is whats filling my ears at the moment. Not exactly Christmassy, but certainly Winterish.
A huge thanks to all those who suggested tracks. Sorry to Old Cheeser - I couldn't bring myself to include The Waitresses Christmas Wrapping, simply because the Spice Girls once covered it.
And I can't find anywhere an electronic version of Tony Robinson's Christmas Wrapping song, which I loved as kid.
