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
love) ... 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
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.
