After a former life working for over ten years in retail I developed a dislike of Christmas songs. Four weeks of the same Christmas songs CD over and over, every year, can do that to you.
If The Ipcress File was ever remade, a convincing alternative to pulsating white noise would be The Greatest Christmas Hits Ever CD played repeatedly. After four weeks of I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day you’ll be ready to push a rusty nail into your palm to maintain a grip on reality.
However, for me, this song doesn’t join the ranks of mindless Crimbo warbles, and is one which seems particularly appropriate given the light dusting of snow we’ve had here in South Shields this morning.
