COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS: Stu Nicholson


Christmas music can lift your heart, move you to tears and be a genuinely spiritual experience. On the other hand it can make you want to throw up! We have asked a whole slew of Gonzofolk for their top five favourite Christmas songs (secular, sacred or both), and will be printing a list, and showing a video every day until after Christmas.

The trouble is that I didn't really think this through, and I both didn't start early enough and asked too many people, so despite it being Boxing Day (and tomorrow being um.... thursday) the series will continue for a few more days...

Today we hear from Stuart Nicholson from Galahad:

1.       I Believe in Father Christmas - Greg Lake – Used to do this one at Xmas gigs!
2.       A Spaceman Came Travelling – Chris De Burgh – Bit fluffy but I like it..
3.       A Fairytale of New York – The Pogues and much missed Kirsty MacColl
4.       Winter Wonderland – Various
5.       Snowbound – Genesis – Not strictly a Xmas song but full of Xmas/wintery imagery

...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
