Hello there, and welcome back to the Free Christmas Music blog! I hope that you've had a good year and that you are looking forward to Christmas. I've been listening to at least a bit of Christmas music since just after Halloween, and the last few days I've been listening to little else. I've been thinking about things that I can post about this year and I've already got a few ideas. If anyone has any requests for things they'd like to see featured here, please leave a comment or send me an email and I'll see what I can do.
The first thing I'd like to post about is a little song that struck me as quite cool when I heard it a couple of days ago. The song is called "Song About Christmas" by Oxfordshire, UK-based band The Snowballs. As you may have guessed from the title, this is not exactly a traditional Christmas song; instead, it's an upbeat punk rock tune with tongue-in-cheek lyrics that capture the fun, offbeat side of Christmas time. If you can imagine what it would sound like if The Clash had included a Christmas song on London Calling, you'll have a good idea of what this song sounds like. Or, even better, go download the song and hear it for yourself (here's an alternate download location).
I hope you enjoy this little gem of a track. Until next time, happy listening!
