The excellent Now Show had a great spoof song last night on the X Factor's use of Cohen's Hallelujah.

To the tune of the song itself they had a line directed at Simon Cowell the gist of which was "you want a Christmas number one, but it doesn't have to be your version, fooled ya"

Indeed Buckley's version is now up to No 2 on itunes, so will all old grumpies please go over there and buy it, even if you already have it, because, as Amy MacDonald never tires of telling us, the yuf of today have their own songs. And quite right too, no-one saw us trying to sing Frank Sinatra at 18.

This is lovely to, from the Weepies, I gotta have you -if you are apart for Christmas this is the one to drink and eat to........

Hello apprentice,you're right, us grumpies rule ,we should unite, we have nothing to lose but our zimmers! Nice tune be da way - must try and put it on my playlist. You need to have had your fair share of coffee and cryin', whiskey and wine ,before you sing Allelujah with any kind of conviction/empathy.Merry Christmas to you and yours. Don't forget to check out the results of TFE cartoon caption contest-it's wicked man!

Back in business - just in time to wish you an Happy Holiday time and a happy healthy 2009.
The Weepies are delightful. Sadly Hallelujah - the music mainly - doesn't grab me but it would have to be Jeff Buckley over anything tainted with Cowell.

Thanks T, I'll look over to your contest

Great to see you back Pat, I think Leonard is an acquired taste so don't worry.
