Ho the Solstice! Light your fires and candles and wreathe your dwelling with winter greenery (as opposed to Mountain Greenery, one of the finest songs ever written. Don't believe me? Get a load of these rhymes - here. If you look on YouTube you'll find a surreal Mickey Mouse version, which I was going to offer, but they SING THE WRONG WORDS!!!!)
Continuing the theme of my favourite Christmas songs, let's have a
bit of Jethro Tull, with a fine example of Bad and Aggressive Miming from 1976.
And here's Greg Lake, bewildering some Bedouin. I don't know the date of the video, but it looks authentically '70s to me.
Whatever you are doing, may your solstice be bright. It may be the longest night, but remember that in the dark of winter lies dies natalis solis invicti - the birthday of the undefeated sun.
Thanks for popping in - do leave a comment in the salon.
