Christmas Disco



So, I'm going through hundreds of Christmas songs this month for the always cheap mix cd stocking stuffer. The amount of shitty music made for this holiday is really unbelievable. I can just imagine some fancy recording studio with vocal artists practicing scales right before they record "Jingle BALLS" or "Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer". Naturally, I'm always slightly pleased when a odd gem reveals itself in the plethora of feces that is Christmas music. I've never really made the connection between Disco and the birth of baby Jesus, but if you're drunk caroling at the office Christmas party, might as well be to something you can dance to. The Snowbelle track by Camille seems almost good enough to drop at the club, or maybe that's just the eggnog talking

Camille - Snowbelle
Camille - White Christmas
(it's a little painful, but what isn't about this song)

White Christmas by Camille was arranged by Karl Jenkins and Mike Ratledge ( formerly of Soft Machine ) and produced by them and Mike Thorne ( who produced Soft Cell ) and the singer is Clare Torry who worked with Pink Floyd.
