Sange apropos julen 4: The Kinks “Father Christmas”

Father Christmas

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

Sange apropos julen 2: Robert Downey Jr. – “River”

12. december 2007

Joni Mitchells “River” fra albummet “Blue” (1968) har allerede været med en gang i bloggen, fordi det er min favorit-julesang, der mægtig fint indfanger den stemning, der kan ramme en som forhammer i den søde juletid. Desværre kan youtube ikke diske op med Jonis egen udgave, men denne med Robert Downey Jr. (en af capacs yndlingsfilmskuespillere) er bestemt heller ikke dÃ¥rlig:

Sange apropos julen 1: Ryan Adams – “Friends”

12. december 2007

Julen kan godt være en svær tid at komme igennem, ikke mindst musikalsk. Derfor starter jeg her en lille serie med sange, der har med julen at gøre, og som holder ogsÃ¥ efter jul…

As pretty as a song
A song could ever be
Like Christmas on a river
Without a boat or Christmas tree
This afternoon with you was something like a letter
The kind that someone writes but never sends
And when you look at me like that
I know that someday it’s gonna end
And when you go
I bet you miss your friends

As angry as a breeze
Tugging hard upon the sails
I’ve been moving through these streets forever
From Baltimore to Amsterdam
These things inside me, they repeat like broken records
Spinning pretty somethings behind my eyes
And when I can’t look at you
I can paint your picture perfectly in my mind
And when I get old
I’m gonna miss you all the time

That wind up in the trees
Scattering bluebirds all over the place
Shuffling children and piles of leaves
I wish I was the wind, I’d touch your face
This afternoon with you was something like a letter
The kind that someone writes but never sends
And when your good to me
It makes me blue because someday it’s gonna end
And when we pass on
I bet you miss your friends
Bet you miss your friends
I bet you miss your friends

Sangen “Freinds” stammer fra Ryan Adams & The Cardinals’ dobbeltcd “Cold Roses” (2005)
