We Felt So Young

I’ve posted this song almost every Christmas since the blog began and its definitely worth another go. Low’s Just Like Christmas with sleigh bells on and everything. It’s pretty much perfect, especially because of the pay off in the lyric…

‘But you were wrong
It wasn’t like Christmas at all’

On Our Way From Stockholm It Started To Snow

We’re getting our tree today so it seems like a good time to post a Christmas song, no matter how much I try to avoid it. Low’s Just Like Christmas a a cracking little tune- sleigh bells disguising the fact that by the time they got to Oslo the snow had gone and it wasn’t like Christmas at all.

Christmas Post

Time for a Christmas post- aside from the obvious (The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl) Christmas songs are in limited supply at Bagging Area. This one by Low is a perennial favourite though and the funny thing about it is, it’s not really about Christmas, it’s just that driving to Oslo it started to snow and it was just like Christmas. It wasn’t really Christmas at all.

Advent Post Number Four

Now this is a proper Christmas cracker and no mistake- Low’s Just Like Christmas. I posted it last year but make no apologies for putting it up again.

‘On our way from Stockholm
It started to snow
And you said it was just like Christmas
But you were wrong
It wasn’t like Christmas at all

By the time we got to Oslo
The snow was gone
And we got lost
The beds were small
But we felt so young
It was just like Christmas’

No Hope, No Harm

I said a few weeks ago that there aren’t many cover versions of Smiths songs that are any good, or at least that Smiths covers can’t usually get near the originals. Here’s an exception. Minnesota’s slowcore trio Low with a 50s tinged, drama filled cover of Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me. Desolate yet warming.
