Billy Idol - Happy Holidays

If this doesn't get you in the mood then nothing will...

Thanks to my friend DG (official 'Ripped' site designer) posting a picture of the outrageous cover to this, I felt compelled to check it out and a quick search on Filecrop sorted me out.

All yer festive favourites are here, sung in Billy's unique style, complete with backing from a band who change their style for every track. There are a few spoken word moments where he perfects the voice of a sexual predator with an unhealthy interest in children. Something for everyone then.

I downloaded it for a laugh and am listening to it just now, but it's become a bit more-ish and I now feel compelled to give it a run through till the end and offer it to you as a masochistic treat for your festive eardrums.

I've not bothered with the usual tagging and other pish so you can have the same download linky that I found. Merry Xmas, pop pickers...

*kisses credibility goodbye*

Nice day for a white Christmas...

I don't call myself a Billy Idol fan but he does a great job with these songs. Great listening to alongside Andy Williams, Bing and Nat.

Enjoy your holidays Moggieboy, and thank you for a year of wonderful posts!

I've been playing one or other of these tracks at every gig over the last three weeks. Especially "Frosty The Snowman" - sheer awful genius :-)
