Musica natalizia 1

Manca una settimana a Natale.
E poiché non condivido i sentimenti di ostilità di alcuni – nonper la festa in se o per il suo significato originario, per lo meno – mi pareuna buona idea infligg… ehm, proporre una piccola raccolta di canti natalizi ai miei visitatori.

La mia ideale compilation di Natale.
Ricordate cosa diceva Nick Hornby?
Per fare una grande compilation, il primo pezzo è essenziale…

Perciò, partiamo con The Kinks.
Father Christmas.
Ha trent’anni suonati, e musica e immagini sono un po’ fuori sinc.
Il che, tutto sommato, ha un suo senso….

When I was small I believed in santa claus
Though I knew it was my dad
And I would hang up my stocking at christmas
Open my presents and Id be glad

But the last time I played father christmas
I stood outside a department store
A gang of kids came over and mugged me
And knocked my reindeer to the floor

They said:
Father christmas, give us some money
Dont mess around with those silly toys.
Well beat you up if you dont hand it over
We want your bread so dont make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Dont give my brother a steve austin outfit
Dont give my sister a cuddly toy
We dont want a jigsaw or monopoly money
We only want the real mccoy

Father christmas, give us some money
Well beat you up if you make us annoyed
Father christmas, give us some money
Dont mess around with those silly toys

But give my daddy a job cause he needs one
Hes got lots of mouths to feed
But if youve got one, Ill have a machine gun
So I can scare all the kids down the street

Father christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
Well beat you up if you dont hand it over
Give all the toys to the little rich boys

Have yourself a merry merry christmas
Have yourself a good time
But remember the kids who got nothin
While youre drinkin down your wine

Father christmas, give us some money
We got no time for your silly toys
Well beat you up if you dont hand it over
We want your bread, so dont make us annoyed
Give all the toys to the little rich boys
