I'm dreaming of a Boy at xmas

"Holidays are coming, holidays are coming..." Along with Pet Shop Boys who release their Christmas EP on the 14th December, Boy George gets in one day earlier with his version of White Christmas, spelled B-Rude stylee as Xmas. It's a reggae-lite version produced by Kinky Roland (glad to see they're friends again), and one for the Christmas playlist I'll be listening to whilst stuffing the turkey. Mind you, I was expecting to see his self-penned new song You Ruined My Christmas (a phrase his mum screamed at a drunken aunt once) as part of the package. Where is it? I wanna hear it!

But the major song on this EP is a new one called Lousy Substitute. It's a Bowie meets Lady Gaga epic. Go listen here (and buy there too!)

exciting stuff. I look forward to it. I think people forget that George was doing what Lady Gaga is doing now back in the 80s.

His version of White Christmas is awful. I don't like either of the other songs either. it sounds nothing like Lady Gaga. Lady Gaga actually has good songs. And what happened to his voice? It sounds bad.
