It's Christmas, Let's Be Ironic!
I fucking hate indie fucking versions of Christmas songs but what's even worse is the original tracks, with titles like Fuck Of Santa or Christmas in The Student's Union or equally pish titled nonsense. I hate the let's be ironic about Christmas, so as we're still cool but secretly we really want to just have a good time like everybody else.
Either do Christmas right or don't fucking bother!
Here's the best example of Christmas done right, just don't even bother mentioning either the Slow Club or The Raveonettes and all the rest, those versions may be adequate renditions but this is the only one that matters.
