Alternative Christmas Mixtape: Day 13
On account of it being Christmas Eve, and because we like you, we’re going to do a quick and dirty double header. Today’s Mixtape is brought to you by Dermot Whelan and Síle ní Bhraonáin.
Never again shall we see so many tracksuits in a Christmas No 1 video – unless Usain Bolt and his mates release a charity single.
My favourite song at this time of year has to be ‘Fairytale of New York’. Okay, a bit predictable, but I love it. The lyrics are wonderful and it’s just the tune to get me into the Christmas mood. Love listening to it while wrapping my presents!
Síle ní Bhraonáin is a weather presenter with TG4. Dermot Whelan presents Republic of Telly and co-hosts 98FM’s Dermot & Dave Show Monday – Friday, 4pm-7pm. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to guess who chose which song.
Culch.ie’s Alternative Christmas Mixtape is curated by Aaron McAllorum, Lisa McInerney and Sinéad Keogh (yeah, we said curated…).
