The third Christmas CollectionIt's that time of year again, so here's another Christmas compilation.
Again I tried to look for songs that are relevant in this time of the year, without being too predictable or too sweet.
As usual one song is Dutch... the highly overrated "Christmas was a Friend of Mine" by Fay Lovsky.
The Belgian song is the bluesy track "I'll Be Home On Christmas Day" by Blue Blot.
I'm particularly fond of the humour and the sweetness in "Bin heute Abend" by Roger Cicero, and the irony and the drive in "It Doesn't Often Snow on Christmas" by the Pet Shop Boys.
Enjoy the music, and have a nice weekend.
