We at Team Buffet are not happy. And tonight we had a little moan about Dave and George and their savage spending cuts. We also played the most bizarre selection of Christmas music you may ever hear, peppered with top pop and punk tunes.
My highlight was a track chosen by Emma Bob 3 â€“ Charles Spearinâ€™s â€˜Mrs Morris (Reprise)â€™ which forms part of The Happiness Project. He takes his neighbourâ€™s words about love, turns them into music, then adds her voice back in. Itâ€™s beautiful.
Hereâ€™s what we played:
Theme from Happy Days
Andy Williams â€“ Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
The Rapture â€“ Echoes
Sufjan Stevens â€“ That Was the Worst Christmas Ever
Deerhoof â€“ Milkman
Christmas in the Stars â€“ What Do You Get A Wookie for Christmas?
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone â€“ Travelling Salesman’s Young Wife Home Alone On Christmas In Montpelier, VT
Charles Spearin â€“ Mrs Morris (Reprise)
Bush Pilot â€“ Canine
Superhumanoids â€“ Contemporary Individual
Killing Joke â€“ Eighties
Everything Everything â€“ Suffragette Suffragette
El Vez â€“ Santa Claus is Sometimes Brown
Marnie Stern â€“ Nothing Left
Frank Sidebottom â€“ Oh Come All Ye Faithful
Glenn Miller Orchestra – Jingle Bells
