Merry Christmas Baby


I'd forgotten all about iTunes Protected AAC Files (R.I.P.) until I realised ye olde download I have of this is one.

So here's a Soundcloud thingy instead - of 'Take 1' as you can see, a slightly different version to the one we all know and love (which is 'Take' what, I wonder?).



I'd offer you an egg nog if I knew what one was.

  1. I'm particularly admiring the skill of the artist in rendering Otis' festive hat.

  3. This is getting a bit concerning,, because I was going to post this song in a few days time.

  4. Eggnog, or egg nog, is a sweetened dairy-based beverage traditionally made with milk and/or cream, sugar, and whipped eggs (which gives it a frothy texture). Brandy, rum, whisky, bourbon, vodka, or a combination of liquors are often added.


    Sounds completely disgusting

  11. No, that's exactly what I wanted to do and what doesn't work with those fellas.

    Thank you for the very informative insights into 'egg nog'.

    I think I may pass.

    Although....'eggnog spilled down my cardigan' may yet prove to be one of the great unwritten Sundays lyrics of all time.

  15. Am late. But am here.
    Mad Friday. Absolutely livid.
    I'd love to share a bottle of eggnog with ally. I'd even hold her hair behind her head whilst she threw up.
    Am a bit sozzled to be honest.
    But I do love you Gloria. You DO know that ... don't you?

  16. Hi Davy,

    Don't let the "protected" songs get the better of you. Just transfer them to a playlist and burn them to a CD - then upload them to your iTunes library again. Voila - they've been freed!

  17. Thanks Marie; yes, I've done that with the blighters in the past. It was just beyond me at cocktail hour, I'm afraid.
