SUNDAY #43 – ‘My Beerdrunk Soul Is Sadder Than a Hundred Dead Christmas Trees’


I’ve managed to forget it’s the season to be jolly and that I bloody love Christmas. I’m now craving a litre of Baileys and a dozen mince pies, with a side plate of pigs in blankets and crystalized ginger (don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it).

Everyone’s got a favourite Christmas song, and this year I’ve decided mine is ‘My Beerdrunk Soul Is Sadder Than a Hundred Dead Christmas Trees’. I know it’s not the most Christian of Christmas songs (move aside, Cliff) but it’s a personal cracker and I’ve loved The Joy Formidable since I was 19. I’ll be listening to this and swigging that sweet, sweet Baileys throughout December.

(and yes, Ritzy Bryan is still my music/style icon and the reason I cut my hair in to a bob)
