Just want to wish everyone a Happy Christmas!!
here's a Christmassy song for you all :)

it's a cover of 2000 Miles by The Pretenders (a song I already
 ... this is a great cover by the Mighty Mighty Bosstones.
I discovered it around February time, on a bright crisp Winter's
day and even though Christmas had long gone, it was just so

damn perfect and filled me with such a great feeling ... I knew
then that there was only 1 song that I could be posting as my
Christmas video.

what I love about this cover, is that it's not the usual upbeat
MMB thing (which I love - I love this band!!) - but I think it
would have taken away from what makes this song *so special*
... they've kept it really close to the original - and dare I say it,
made it EVEN BETTER ... just how it's all lush sounding ... and

it makes me think of the Pogues 'Fairytale of NY crossed with
the Dropkick Murphys - it's definitely got that whole irish-U.S
punk feel going on - and just begs to be sang around a campfire
at the top of your lungs.

and JUST THAT BEGINNING ... it melts my heart. haha
(I'm not even joking!)

hope you all have a lovely day.


  1. Lovely blog.
    Merry Christmas.

  2. Merry Christmas George!

    As a rule, I hate Christmas songs...apart from Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses, December Will Be Magic again by Kate Bush, and 2000 Miles by The good choice!

    I hope you have a great one!

  3. Merry Christmas to you too, George! May your day be filled with joy and happiness! Thank you for being such a sweet person to me!

    Btw, that is a great song! :)

  4. I love that song. I hope your day was a happy one. Now on to the new year! Happy Monday George.
