Last One I Promise . . . Well Mebbie

This will be the last christmas track, well unlesss I have an urge to post something else.

I eventually got a copy of this on 7" single earlier this year while digging through the boxes on the floor in Head on one of my trips to Belfast. I already had the single sided seven with the vocal version but the choral version had alluded me up until then.

At the weekend I was thinking while making up a cd of Christmas tunes. Why didn't Blondie ever do a Christmas tune, if the Ramones could produce the brilliance that is  Merry Christmas (I Don't Want To Fight Tonight) what could Blondie have done?

Frightened Rabbit - It's Christmas So We'll Stop

Ohh Crimbo song by Blondie, big chiming powerpop meets Spector.

Meanwhile I always wondered why Madness never did a Crimbo single. That too would have been good, especially if it was in the same melancholy meets celebration feel of something like Our House.

Well, they [Blondie] did in fact, Drew: "We Three Kings". You can find it here:

Thanks Dirk but that is fucking awful!

Dirk said...

Yeah ... it surely is! But then again I used to be so desperately in love with Debbie Harry that I can forgive her almost everything!
