I think the main reason we did not mention it was because its been posted before, perhaps in a different thread though.
You posted a Die Toten Hosen cover of it at some point, I believe.
Was Tom Baker always the singer for Slade?
You sure it's not Michael Caine?

You're asking the wrong person. Every English person looks like a variation of Marty Feldman to me.

Bit too clean looking. Soap costs a lot and the dirt keeps us hot.

25 Days of Christmas (Songs) - Day 11

Darlene Love with the E Street Band - All Alone on Christmas


Original release: Home Alone 2: Lost in New York – Original Soundtrack Album

It kills me that a song this good was used for a soundtrack cut for a movie so bad. It's funny, is all.

Speaking of the E Street Band - those cats really, really like playing holiday tunes, In The Tradition. (sounds more like their buddies da Ramones here, more so than Phil Spector).

And now for something completely different. ( Hey, it's never too early nor late for Auld Lang Syne. If you're still alive inside, that is).

Still no Jona Lewie? :meh:
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.
