This week (so far) I’m loving The Corr’s “Breathless”. And there you were thinking I’d be listening to a Christmas song!
Truth be told I’ve been listening to Christmas songs from the 1st of December and, whilst I love them, they’ve been a bit tiresome this year. Granted, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without Mariah, Wham and Slade but this year I’m just not feeling it. I have, however, discovered a love for “Fairytale of New York”. But on to my song of the week.
This year 2000 classic has always been a favourite of mine, mostly because for years I thought the lyrics were “leave me Bradley” and I only recently worked out that they were “leave me breathless”. I’ve never claimed to be intelligent.
This is the kind of song that I play full blast when I’m in the car by myself. It is the epitome of finger tapping, head nodding greatness and has always been a winner in my opinion.
It reached #1 in the Irish, Spanish and English charts and was nominated for a Grammy in 2001.
So that’s this week’s song!
In other news, I am exploring alternate ways to get my Lost and delirious review up but if that fails I’ll move onto the next review and come back to that one when I can.
Happy Christmas/December the 25th everyone!
