Merry Christmas to all or any readers of Music Like Dirt, thanks for visiting in 2013.
MILLIE PULLED A PISTOL ON SANTA
I post this mood killer every year, but its an absolute classic from the darker side of christmas. Whats more it still brings back the excitement this De La obsessive felt when it landed on my doormat 17 years ago on Import CD.
On this US only single version De La tell the tale of Millie and how “the coolest dad in town” meets his maker.
“She had the curves that made you wanna take chances
I mean on her, man, I’d love to make advances
I guess her father must ‘a got the same feelin’
I mean, actually findin’ his own daughter Millie appealing”
De La Soul – “Millie Pulled a Pistol On Santa (Full Version)” (MP3)
PATRIK FITZGERALD – “No santa choral end”
MAPS – “Stay Another Day”
“This song is my special Xmas gift to you, inspired by taking 12 Es and running myself over in my own car. Only an enormous puffer jacket prevented me from certain death“.
Maps transformation of Stay Another Day into a blissed out trippy shoegazing epic proves the much maligned E17 penned a couple of pop classics in their time.
Merry Christmas to my home town, Walthamstow.
