Let's start with Frank Hamilton and Lonely This Christmas. Not the most upbeat Christmas song but I did want to mark Christmas with something. Mud who originally recorded this song as a mickey take would probably not approve of its serious nature. You can download this song plus another track here. Merry Christmas everyone.
A Bridge Of Friendship have asked the bands on their roster to put together some covers. Only a Hippopotamus would do...

I featured LIFE on the blog not too long ago and I was pleased to find this free download in my inbox today. The blurb says it's a nice bridge between their last single and their next. Listen to / grab the download above or check out their video below.

Do you remember in the past when you couldn't have a song as soon as you heard it. Where you had to hunt down a song you'd heard. You'd start with how it sounded, hope someone knew what you were on about and hopefully put a name to the song (I remember going in to HMV and signing a song to the woman behind the counter, unsurprisingly she didn't recognise one of the best selling songs that year). Well I knew I'd heard a song I liked, I'd even Shazamed the song but then destroyed my phone by throwing it in a pint of squash. GET ON WITH IT I hear you cry. So you've guessed the song I like is the one above, it's the filler during Final Score on BBC. The official version isn't available on iTunes in the UK, only a remix. How you get the proper version is up to you, all I'm saying is that the thrill is in the chase and I have the proper version.
