Hearing this song at Christmas:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vl5hRPu2_eQ

American censors would never allow this song on the air, but it's fabulous!

What are you telling me that it is never played in the US [Eek!]
But, but, but it is a classic one of the best Christmas songs ever, I mean what other christmas song has the immortal lines:

You're a bum
You're a punk
You're an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it's our last

They repeated the 'story of' documentary (it's one of a series about the writing and production of several classic songs) yesterday on BBC3. Very good documentary if you get a chance to catch one of its repeats.

Hey Santa claus you c***!
Where's me f***ing bike?
I've unwrapped all this other junk and there's nothing that I like.
I wrote you a f***ing letter and I come to see you twice
Ya worn out geriatric fart, you forgot me f***ing bike...

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

TFD - [Happytears] - that's possibly the greatest song ever written... by mankind. And "F*&% ya Guts Out" is another poetic masterpiece... such subtlety of word-play... [Wink]
