Blue Red

UK Christmas No1s

I love Christmas No1s and have collected them over the years on 78, vinyl and CD.

I quite like these next songs.
I liked the originals of both Mad World and Something Stupid and I thought both cover versions were good.

I also liked the fact that Sound of the Underground had a bit of rock to it rather than a ballad.


Here are the next three songs;

Gary Jules - Mad World
2003






Girls Aloud - Sound Of The Underground
2002






Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman - Something Stupid
2001





Blue Red

good wishes

Thank you misstiajournal  for your Christmas card.

It arrived today and looks like it won mine!



And also Happy Birthday to cerberusa hope you had a good one!

And now for something completely different -
I heard Gabriella Cilmi's version of Echo Beach today and I must say I was impressed but it really made me want to listen to the original. Funny thing is, I always imagined the lead singer would have looked more like Suzie from Suzie the Bandshees than Princess Diana!
