Day 19 - 'Christmas Time Again' - Extreme
Way-hay! It's the '90's again!
You may remember this aptly-named band hit the big time in 1991 with the over-wrought acoustic ballad 'More than Words'. If you enjoyed that - and it was a world-wide hit peaking at #2 in the UK - then there's even more to get your ears around here.
We've got the lot; sleigh-bells, strings, doom-laden organ, tinkling piano, girlie heavenly choir, earnest lyrics - you just know the band were wearing Santa hats and I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't have a nodding Donkey and some hay in a corner of the studio too.There's barely a Christmas song trick they've missed out on.
The rest of the year you'd ignore this type of thing like a televised Arsenal match - but it's Christmas! You'll love it and play it again and again...
