Si hay días en el año...


... en los que uno se siente como Carlitos Brown son sin duda éstos. Karpov! les desea felices fiestas a todos y que lo pasen lo mejor que puedan; en la trincherita virtual haremos tres cuartos de lo mismo e intentaremos mantener el tipo navideño a base de turrón del blando e indie canónico.




Y, como a pesar de todo, no sale de manera natural condenar la Navidad así porque sí, vamos a dejar un resquicio para que se cuele la ilusión. De la mano de los queridos Saint Etienne y su I was born on Christmas Day. E intentar ser muy felices, con ése optimismo tan cool que transmiten ellos en este precioso villancico-disco ...

[Sarah:] Spent the summer holed up in a room. / [Tim:] Looking pretty, won't you be here soon? / [Sarah:] EuroDisney, could not work at all / [both:] a little bird had told me in the fall. / Getting groovy after Hallowe'en, / mid-November, got back on the scene. / I'm so glad that I just got my pay! / I was born on Christmas day. /

[Tim:] In December, my heart's full of spring. / [Sarah:] I could phone you, tell you everything, / [Tim:] like the crazy evenings on the yacht; / [both:] Tim and Sarah went and tied the knot! / Did you know they pulled the town hall down? / I don't think you'll recognise this town. / Never could have been a tennis wife, / get into the acting life. /

Getting groovy after Hallowe'en, / mid-November, got back on the scene. / I'm so glad that I just got my pay! / I was born on Christmas day. / I was born on Christmas day. / I was born on Christmas day.





Además podemos bajarnos la compilación de villancicos pop que ha hecho Marta como regalo de Navidad (¡gracias!) e ir rellenando los boletos de buenos deseos de Año Nuevo que hay en Cosas Mínimas.

Pet Shop Boys - It doesn't often snow at Christmas



Christmas is not all it's cracked up to be
Families fighting around a plastic tree
Nothing on the TV that you'd want to see
And it's hardly ever snowing
The way it's meant to be
Like in White Christmas year after year
Bing Crosby, Bring Crosby
Are you listening to me?

It doesn't often snow at Christmas
The way it's meant to do
But I'll still have a glow at Christmas
Because I'll be with you

The Christmas message was long ago lost
Now it's all about shopping and how much things cost
It's meant to be goodwill as well as synthetic fun
And what this is this year's festive number one

It doesn't often snow at Christmas
The way it's meant to do
But I'll still have a glow at Christmas
Because I'll be with you

Neil: Merry Christmas
Chris: And a happy new year

Un saludo,

Federica Bronaza
