As far as any kind of remotely creative thing is concerned, I’m struggling with enthusiasm so I’m going to try and write a bit more about things I that I think about and stuff that I like. English A Level seems to be sucking my creative enthusiasm and, while sometimes I love it, sometimes it just feels like an incredibly cliched move. English Lit people read poetry, novels, like cool music and belong in bands like Belle and Sebastian. Is that who I want to be? It’s just all so confusing sometimes.
While I ponder my life choices, the country is hurtling towards Christmas at an ever increasing speed which means all of the shiny blue lights and consumerism that goes with it are right on my doorstep now. I thought that I would come up with a few Christmas songs that are a little more cosy and warm than the shiny packaged Christmas that is being sold in stores up and down the nation. I have resisted the temptation to put Low’s It Was Just Like Christmas on here because I recon that most people will have heard it before plenty of times. That said, it is a very good Christmas song and on their recent UK tour dates they have been playing a nice version which you can probably find on YouTube somewhere.
(These songs are a selection from my Spotify Christmas playlist that you can find here)
