I’m out and about today having some useful fun. I thought I’d take the opportunity to replay some of my Youtube highlights from 2012, a kind of Christmas Top 5 if you will. Although there are no Christmas songs in the compilation as I haven’t done one this year. Whatever – here we go:
A Laptop From Currys
In at number five is my rant about Currys inability to unsubscribe me from their mailing lists. This video got picked up by the very lovely Mark Webb at Dixons who helped relieve the email pain, for which many Yuletide thanks.
At number four is a proper headbanger of a tune written for my lovely friend and adventurer Flora Marriott. At the time, Flora was in the midst of a strategic planning fest and I hoped to distract her, just a little.
US Tour 2012
Crashing in at number three is this 30 second Flipagram slideshow from my 2012 US tour. So many friends and memories, what a mighty fine experience.
At number two is the version of Livable Lives I performed at Workplace Trends in London, October 2012. Neil Usher wrote the lyrics and because I fancied an extra challenge I rearranged this version on the fly, making some small lyrical and musical changes as I went along. Nerve racking stuff!
National Pie Week
Topping the chart is my National Pie Week anthem. This took literally seconds to write and it is my Youtube ukulele debut. A rocking tune that I hope will go on to become the bastion of pie week anthems for the future.
So there you have it, my personal Christmas top five, with not a Christmas song in sight 🙂
