Final Post of 2013 – Thanks For Following

There is a synthpop band in the UK called ‘Hurts.’ In December, 2010 they released “All I Want For Christmas Is New Year’s Day” as a youtube video and free iTunes download. 

The video went viral in no time flat with over 21 million views (it has since been uploaded dozens of times by others trying to build up their watched video count, so i’m using a copy from vimeo).

The writers of the song say it was written during a very difficult Christmas but released on one of the best Christmases they had ever had.

It’s a bit of a dark tune — outstanding nonetheless.

This is my final post of 2013. Lord willing I’ll be back December 1, 2014 with more different, alternative, out of the mainstream songs about Christmas. I hope you discovered a couple new tunes you’ll put in your annual rotation.

Thanks for following and Happy New Year.
