OK, folks, as promised, the 17 Seconds Christmas Spectacular!
The aim is to post Christmas tracks every day between now and Christmas, as well as other stuff.
So to start it all off today, Low’s ‘Just Like Christmas’ and two cover versions of it.
Low -‘Just Like Christmas.’ mp3
Aberdeen City -‘Just Like Christmas.’ mp3
Snow Patrol -‘Just Like Christmas.’ mp3
Well, in two days time we’ll be getting married. The future in-laws have arrived in Edinburgh, my folks are arriving later and we’re both excited and nervous.
Anyway, this post is dedicated to the soon to be Mrs. 17 Seconds.
Ash-‘Does Your Mother Know?’ mp3
Cooper Temple Clause-‘Let’s Kill Music.’ mp3
Cure-‘Close To me.’ mp3
Rob Dougan -‘Clubbed To Death.’ mp3
Scritti Politti-‘The ‘Sweetest Girl’.’ mp3
As always, if you liek what you hear, support the artists involved. And a hello to Robin, who I went record shopiing with yesterday and said he was still waiting for a shoutout on this blog!
Hi, just a brief, brief post.
I survived my first day back at school, and I’m okay…but very tired.
Here are two tracks I love, which I know I have posted in the past, but they sense of sadness is something I connect with, right now, I guess.
Low -‘Monkey.’ mp3
from the album The Great Destroyer
Schneider TM -‘The Light 3000.’ mp3
Can be found on Rough Trade Shops electronic 01 compilation
(when I started writing the blog, I hadn’t got my cats. this is them, several months ago)
Well, and here we are! This is the 100th post I have done on the blog. Over the course of seven months, my interest in music, along with comments on teaching and hitting thirty have given me something to work on. Whilst I still dream of having as many readers as some of the other blogs, the feedback I have received has been flattering, and if I had as little rubbish to deal with at school as I do here, life would be easier!!
Thanks to my long-suffering girlfriend, and my family for their feedback, and friends and readers (of course, these are not necessarily mutually exclusive) who have helped this come along. I have learned more about computers along the way, and there’s probably fewer rants about it all now…
What I’ve done this time is just to pick ten great tracks, no theme, just stuff I love, and really hope you do too. As ever, if you like’em, do go and buy them.
Here’s to the next one hundred posts. Enjoy the music.
