All I Want For Christmas is a ..............Lounge Lizard?

Sunday Breakfast 14th December 2008

This week was a tale of cough lozenges ,spluttering and an itchy right index finger. There was also the jet lag ,I'd been to Cork airport again!!. I started with the Kings of Leon and one of the tracks we featured on Sunday Breakfast some weeks ago Use Somebody which is now in our A List.

Adele                                                                     Chasing Pavements (When I first heard this        song I                                                                               thought it was Bjork)
Phil Spector Christmas Album                         The Bells of St Marys
Killers                                                                    Human (My Single of the year)
Verve                                                                      Rather Be

7.30 Saw a very Christmassy? Lounge Lizards

Santa Baby                                                           Eartha Kitt
The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year           Andy Williams

Charlatans                                                           Oh Vanity
Bee Gees                                                             Words
Alesha Dixon                                                        The Boy Does Nothing
Eric Clapton                                                           Lay Down Sally

Headlines from the local papers were.....

Just after the Sports Roundup at 8.30 was Essential Coldplay/Satriani which looked at the story from the news during the week which saw Joe Satriani allege that Coldplay had taken bits of his track 'If I Colud Fly' in writing 'Viva La Vida'. I played both. What did you think?
