When I got into the writing game, I didn’t think I’d be deciding people’s futures.
I say this having NOT reached for the delete key when I got yet another email from some Scottish rocker looking to make the big time. Gerry Boyle, music producer and brother of the incomparable Susan Boyle, do your own job and leave me to mine. But I have a soft heart, so I open up the email from steviepopstar1 and there’s yet another music file and reference to some nice things I had to say about Stevie and the Laymanites (is every musician in the UK named Stevie?) in an earlier post. Says steviepopstar, “have they got the christmas number one dont think so have a listen and let us know what you think batman the song is called 01 XMAS CHEER by the purple doves”
so I do have a listen. Sure enough, it’s a proper Christmas rocker. Shades of the Beatles annual Christmas song, it’s got a driving bass line, builds to a thumping chorus. It even has bells. I like it. A lot. So give it a listen, as soon as I can post it. Darn wma file.
I think I’ll keep my day job.
