    Default It Doesn't often Snow at Christmas

    Hi Everyone,

    I need a huge favor! I'm trying to get my hands on this Pet Shop Boy Christmas track. As I'm sure many of you know, it was a track on a CD that was sent out to members of their fan club only. As far as I know, it is not available anywhere else. Otherwise I would run out and get it.

    Would anyone be kind enough to send me a copy? An MP3 would be fine. If you can, please send me an email on EGN. Thanks!

    Rich

    Great song. It really deserves a wider release, definitely something more than a fan club only tune.

    Are you talking about their version of "Jingle Bells"? I could've sworn I had that, but it was instrumental if I remember correctly, or else I could just be way off the map as usual.

    Yeah, what's the name of the song? Also, last year ADD released a Xmas comp . . . does anybody remember the name offhand?

    It's on the subject header u do-do's.

    DJ, the xmas CD you must be thinking about is Plastique Christmas but it wasnt from ADD. I have it. The highlight is def The Little Drummer Boy from Echoeing Green that you can here on EGN.

    Oh yes, that Echoing Green Little Drummer Boy is awesome. ADD offered that and Intuition's O Holy Night as a download to their newsletter readers last year which is why I thought it was an ADD comp. I didn't pick it up last year and now that the holiday season is approaching I'm wishing I had.

    Sorry about missing the thread title, for some reason I was attributing that as a line from Do They Know It's Christmas? I guess that line is really It doesn't snow in Africa or something like that. It fit when I was singing it in my head earlier. Hee hee.

    Intution's "Oh Holy Night" can be downloaded from Amazon, of all places. Also tomorrow I'll be making Echoing Green's version of "Do They Know It's Christmas" available for download (with permission), and I hear that EG's site will have "Little Drummer Boy" available for download soon. Good stuff.

    There is a version of "Jingle Bells" out there that is attributed to PSB. Maybe it's legit, but they definately have a song called "It Doesn't Often Snow At Christmas" which was released as a fan club only Christmas gift a few years ago. There's an instrumental and a vocal version with lyrics talking about how it often doesn't snow at Christmas, like it's supposed to. It gets chatted up as a potential "Christmas single" every now and then on http://petshopboys.co.uk 's Q&A, but apparently Chris hates the song. Don't really know why, maybe it's too obvious.

    Cool, thanks for the head's up on that one. You know, they should put out an all-synthpop Christmas album, if they have'nt already. I would suggest Erasure's "She won't be home" be on it too, being as how that is one of my favorite Christmas songs to listen to around this time of year. I mean, you see every other type of Christmas comp floating around he encaps, why not one for us synth fans?

    I'm sure you can download "It doesn't often snow at Xmas" from somewhere. Do a little search and you should find it quite easily. Otherwise I can also send you an mp3.

    He got the mp3. If anyone else wants it, let me know. I have the original, and two rather good bootleg remixes. I love to share.

    If anyone is still curious about the song there is a link to watch a video of the Boys performing the song in British tv some time back at http://petshopboys.co.uk . It's kind of an odd performance with fake snow, a boy's choir helping out and Neil wearing a tux and Chris dressed as Santa. It's pretty funny actually.
