It’s getting to that time again, the work Christmas party (December 1), for which I organise the music via a ballot. Staffers had two weeks to submit song choices, and this week everyone can vote on each track (love/hate/meh) - I’ll tally them up and arrange them in a sensible, logical order to be played on the night.
Sadly this means I will have to listen to a lot of bad stuff. Luckily the worst suggestions won’t actually get many votes - so far it looks like the person who suggested Bette Midler’s “Wind beneath my wings” was also the only person to throw a “Love” vote its way. Ditto Celine Dion’s “I drove all night”.
Topping the list so far is The Cure with “Friday I’m in love”, A-ha’s “Take on me”, and “Staying Alive” by The Bee Gees. “Hey Ya!” is up there too.
