    I know it is at least a week early for this stuff but Little Mix and Mabel both chose yesterday to release their not completely dissimilar sounding Christmas songs:





    Not sure either are that thrilling but Mabel might have the edge.

    More in the party spirit is the new Bjorn Again EP:



    The original song is fair to passable on first listen, but Underneath the Tree works very well and Human has been transformed into something vaguely festive but joyous all the same.

    It does seem to have become a bit of a festive staple for veteran gay interest pop acts.

    Very pretty. The studio version apparently features Troye Sivan, though I'm not sure he will add a lot in this case.

    I do like a bit of misery and heartache at Christmas. Not literally.

    That had slipped my mind so thanks for the reminder.

    Did we see that the Christmas album (a DOUBLE :zombie:) from Robbie Williams features Helene Fischer on one song and Tyson Fury of all people on another?

    A suitably shimmery Kylie cast off from Saara Aalto:

    A Christmas keeper I think. The post-chorus wooooing is pure Kylie. Presumably it dates back to Kylie Christmas and, if so, it seems odd that it wasn't included as it is certainly strong enough. All I can think is that there isn't really anything else synthy like this on the album and there was a decision to avoid the usual Kylie electronic pop sound.

    I don’t understand why she didn’t keep it on her album, it’s better than anything on it! I suppose the genre thing makes sense. It’s also produced by Steve Anderson, I’m guessing Saara got the song as it was, even the backing vocals sound like Kylie!

    I listened to Kylie Christmas yesterday and reminisced about how we thought at first it was going to be a proper disco Christmas album.

    I wish it had been, albeit that 100 Degrees was kinda luke warm...

    Saara Aalto's Christmas EP also features one of the worst renditions of Fairytale of New York I've ever heard, and I'm including Ronan Keating's version in that assessment.

    And no, she doesn't sing the faggot line.

    I have just listened to this. Saara in full musical theatre mode, a truly horrible sax break and whoever Michael Monroe is doing the worst Stars In Their Eyes MacGowan imaginable.

    This one sounds very much like Muna doing a Christmas song:

    It took about 45 seconds to establish that this is brilliant. Thanks for bringing this into my life :disco: the sax outro is divine!

    This is what I came here to post. Just heard it today. I do like some beautiful Christmas misery. And it's new - I'm a Modern again.
