Day Two: Song that makes me happy

So many to choose from and I really had to just go for a nostalgic one that makes me chuckle every single time I play it:

Half Man Half Biscuit: All I want for Christmas is a Dukla Prague away kit

Come on, the title is even funny!

What I love about this, apart from its whimsical tune, is the fact that it is almost like a stand up comedian in full swing, with some cracking observational comedy. I’m not sure how much this appeals to everyone else but for a typical English boy growing up in the north, this track describes so many of my wasted hours with pinpoint accuracy and razor sharp irony.

If you’ve not heard the band before you should check them out as even though they are very much of their time they also have a nostalgic quality that is hard to beat!
