In the MOOD

OK - I'm in the mood now - a bit.

It must be the poinsettia
which cost me two quid from Tesco .

So - what shall we choose for this year's Christmas song?

Noddy went down well in 2007.

But last year you were very rude about Mud, except for NiC who is a chap with immaculate taste.

So - what about Elton?

He's a very fair minded chap, after all he's been married to both a man and a woman. And he could rock with the best of them when he wasn't Candling in the Wind.

So here we go* ...

.. A very happy holiday to you all ..
from KAZ

(Next year - David Essex).
*Video has stopped playing - it was violated by zIggI.

Can't wait for next year. Will it be 'A winter's tale' ?

9:28 am  
Blogger Dave said...

Both timed at 9.28 - A tie, equal first.

9:30 am  
Blogger Roses said...


Sorry. But that was on the Department Stores XMas CD. I can't bear any of those songs anymore, since surviving 2 Xmases in retail.

9:30 am  
Blogger Roses said...

Dave, they were both timed at 9.28, but I'm still first.

oh yeah, oh yeah, check me, Firsties!

Blogger Rog said...

What juvenile behaviour from Roses and Dave. See me outside my study at 10-30.

Elton was even yawning at 6 seconds in, beating me by a full 1 second!

Happy Christmas Kaz! Hope it's not to warm for you in Catalonia.

Good choice and a reminder of the days when Sir Elton made proper records.

Merry Christmas Kaz (and everyone else in bloggy world)

yeay! I'm stepping into Christmas with Elton. . .


after all your sartorial advice, KAZ, I'll always stick with things that are comfy

David Essex? Rock On!

Blogger KAZ said...

Your second first!

Yes - hankies at the ready.

You will always be first. XX

I remember your complaint when I posted Noddy.
I sympathise.
Was David Essex on the selection?

You mean you sat it out for 1 whole second.
I'm here up north and it's snowing again.

Thanks and happy Christmas to you.

I love those and used to have a similar pair in pearlised green.

Thanks and same to you.

David is my guilty pleasure.
Is he known in the states?

{one for you too}

I think Elton sucks. Mind you he's a good singer

No christmas songs for me.
Thank you.

It has to be Stop The Cavalry (Stabilisers' version obviously...).

Yes, it is a shameless plug.
Merry Xmas to you and yours, Kaz.

Noddy yes, Mud definitely but I'm afraid despite liking Elton generally I'm not sure about this one............actually it's growing on me a bit now.

Yes, not bad at all. Happy Winterval Kaz and all.

Nooo... Elton, stick with Benny and the Jets - that IS wonderful! Bah humbug to all. Happy Christmas Kaz.

Elton used to be so much better when he was drugged up to the eyeballs. Sod that Goodbye England's Rose bollocks.

Here's to a bone idle week or two.

Happy Christmas Kaz!
It could have been worse, it could have been Wham.

Blogger KAZ said...

Elton so wanted to be cool and beautiful like the other rock stars.
But - don't we all.

Careful - my mood is very unstable and could crumble at any time.
But I'm trying.

Good luck with the band.
Thanks and same to you.

I think I'll grow to like being a honeybunny.

It's surprisingly hard to find a Christmas song with a genuine video.
It's almost growing on me too.

See above re difficulty of finding a Christmassy one - but I shall keep trying.
Happy Christmas to you too Mopsa.

The girls would never love him - but the boys liked to Crocodile Rock.
Enjoy idling - need any tips?

Blogger KAZ said...

It was a toss up (so to speak).
Happy Christmas to you too.

No comment from me on this ... singer ...

You remembered! Oh bless.

No, David Essex wasn't on the compilation. You're safe.

My Christmas gift to you…

The Sir Elton Claus Christmas ornament.

MJ, that's just not nice.

Soooo many shades of WRONG!

Greg Lake does it for me. Or The Pogues. Can't go wrong with The Pogues in my book.

Merry Christmas, Kaz, hope you have a terrific one.

Roses - I can't find it wrong: It perfectly fits!

and a happy thingy to yourself!

Blogger KAZ said...

And to you ...with bells on.
Do I detect a note of condemnation?
I am trying so hard to avoid the Bah Humbug attitude.

I remember cringing at the thought of your aural ordeal.
Definitely David next year. Or maybe not :)

High Kitsch - wonderful.
But it flatters him too much.

You are so difficult to please sometimes.

The Pogues and Kirsty is far too good for my Christmas choice.
I'll do my best - hope you will too.

Obviously it doesn't fit with Roses.

Thanks Kev:
I'll enjoy it in retrospect.

Yes, but it fits totally with my idea about this singer, its the matching expression - if I should create something that would have to express my opinion about the singer in question, it would be exactly this object: Empty plastic kitsch ornament. I think that sums up his musical work for the last decades perfectly.

Nah, the much missed and lamented Kirstie MacColl and the dentally challenged Shane Magowan.

'And the choir of the NYPD Blue were singing Galway Bay, and the bells were ringing out for Christmas Day'

Oh dear I'm starting to feel seasonal, now that my wallet has been emptied.

I shant tell you my mood, or pee on your obvious enjoyment.My speakers shall remain firmly OFF.
But I'll turn them on next year for Mr. Essex.

Enjoy the holiday, Kaz.And kick off 2010 in style!

12:24 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

No Garfer - The Pogues and Kirsty are far too good. My Christmas song must be trashy pop (ironic eh?)
Pull yourself together man - repeat after me 'Bah Humbug'.

You aren't really supposed to like it - it's supposed to get you into the mood (whatever that might be).
Have a lovely holiday Dinah.

Blogger dinahmow said...

I'm going to print a T shirt thus: I don't do Christmas!
Yes, I shall enjoy the pool, maybe the beach if the jellies are not there, and I'll get stuck into the ginormous pile of artwork.

Also, I have a chemistry query for you, but it can wait.
Felize navidad. My Spanish spelling is crap!

My poinsettia is already half dead and it's raining in Catalonia.

Happy Christmas Dear Kaz - Elton wouldn't play for me :( apparently I violated his terms of use - is it cos I'm a girlie?

No worries I've heard it before and even know the words tra la la la la aaaaaaaa


Have a drink for me :)

Blogger KAZ said...

What a healthy attitude.
*Bones Festes* (Catalan).

Poinsettia's are born to die.
I was there last year - Christmas day will be fine.
*Bones Festes*

Happy Christmas - you brave little soldier :)
It won't play at all now - since you violated it. I shall add a footnote saying who is to blame.

Elton is now on my chirpy Xmas collection to clear everyone out of the kitchen when I'm cooking so excellent, thanks Kaz.

Have a great one.

Thanks to you and the E-Elf for organising the Secret Santa - Vicus will never know what he missed.

I will.

I heard it earlier on the radio - It's grown on me too.
TV Smith is now on my list.

Hi eroswings:
Wonderful graphics in the comment. I'm so jealous.
Have a great holiday.

Are you snowed in on the hill in Hebden Bridge?
Enjoy yourself.

Thanks babe.
Glad you were getting up close and personal with Beast.
You make a lovely couple.
