I listened to Sleigh Ride this morning, because even though it’s not Christmas I was cold and tired and it is a song that never doesn’t cheer me up. It is also the most crazily complicated song in the world – if you are a musician, pick up your instrument of choice and try busking along with it and you’ll see what I mean:
But Dan says it’s too early to listen to Christmas music, so I turned it off and listened to some show tunes instead, and found myself shivering with glee at the lyrics to Thoroughly Modern Millie. I can’t decide whether my favourite is
Men say it’s criminal/What women’ll do
What they’re forgetting/Is this is nineteen twenty two!
What we think is chic, unique and quite adorable
They think is odd and Sodom and Gomorrable
Both are pretty perfect. What song lyrics make you happy?
