The AYNITB Christmas Post of 2017!

(Credit: kitschyliving.tumblr.com)

So here we are again. We’re a week out from another year’s end, and it’s the eve of The Most Wonderful Time of The Year™ – and so, naturally, it’s time for the All You Need Is The Beatles‘ Christmas Post of 2017! You may remember from the Christmas Post of 2016 that last year, I finally got to enjoy the icy-cold Northern Hemisphere Christmas I’ve always dreamt of, so I must admit that this year’s festive season is a little bit of a let down. However, I have indeed found myself indulging in a little more holiday spirit this year – I have even actively sought out kitschy Christmas music! – so perhaps the other side of the world has rubbed off on me a touch?

Anyway, I’m gonna keep this short this year, as I’m gonna go wrap presents, thrown on Phil Spector’s A Christmas Gift For You, and watch Olive the Other Reindeer (unarguably The Best Christmas Movie!) in a sec. But alas, as tradition dictates, here are a few of my Christmassy faves for 2017 – some the same as those I’ve mentioned in prior years, but accompanied by a few new numbers as well! Be sure to let me know what you’re spinnin’ this festive season in the comments too…

David Bowie & Bing Crosby – ‘Little Drummer Boy (Peace on Earth)’

Big Star – ‘Jesus Christ’

The Waitresses – ‘Christmas Wrapping’

Lou Reed – ‘Xmas in February’

Wizzard – ‘I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day’

Cocteau Twins – ‘Frosty the Snowman’

Ramones – ‘Merry Christmas (I Don’t Want To Fight Tonight)’

Darlene Love – ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’

Darlene Love – ‘White Christmas’ 

(I know I included another of her songs from A Christmas Gift For You above, but I adore ‘White Christmas’ so I had to add this too!)

Joni Mitchell – ‘River’

Thee Headcoatees – ‘Santa Claus’

The Sonics – ‘Don’t Believe In Christmas’

Shonen Knife – ‘Space Christmas’

John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and the Harlem Community Choir – ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’

And so, merry Christmas everyone, and best wishes for the rest of the festive season and final week of 2017 – thank you so much for your continued readership and interaction, even with my sporadic posting schedule, it really means so much to me! I am, however, planning on returning with one final post before the 1st of Jan – and I also already have large portions of my first few posts for the New Year! – so you shall hear from me again very soon. Anyway, I’m gonna sign off with a few clips that I love that didn’t really fit above: an upload of my favourite Christmas album, excerpt from my favourite aforementioned Christmas movie, and that same amazing clip I did last year…

  1. Ahh enjoy Olive, it’s fantastic – I mean, what other “kids” movie features Michael Stipe as a flightless reindeer and makes jokes about deus ex machinas (is that the plural?!)! And that collab is amazing – I’ve made it a tradition to watch it every Christmas night, I love it so much!
