Mad Crush “Listen, The Snow Is Falling” – Listen

We could have pulled a fast one on you here valued reader – we premiered Mad Crush’s single ‘Northern Lights‘ at the end of October, and that’s got a bit of a wintry connection.  We could have just run that again.  But no – we don’t resell previously announced music and claim it as new.  That would never do.  Plus this Festive Season Song is a cover of Yoko Ono’s fifty year old song.

As you’d expect from Yoko it has beautifully constructed lyrics, and Mad Crush have done a wonderful job of putting their particular spin on it – it’s a dreamy antidote to commercialised year end consumerism.

Hey, still here?  Well – as an added bonus now that you’re in a Yoko mood here’s her perfect chilly contribution to  Festive cheer.  Well, maybe not cheer: “I knew a girl………who tried to walk across the lake / ’course it was winter when all this was ice / That’s a hell of a thing to do, you know.“.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
