Tags: Boxing Day, Christmas Eve, Doors Alabama Song, Switzerland
We’ve made it through Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas. Now the biggie is here. Yep, it’s Boxing Day!
Oh, don’t act like you’ve not been counting down the hours.
Even the MrSEC.com iPod went British this morning with a classic cut from the Kinks. I remember hearing this one as I walked into a club in Lucerne, Switzerland several years back. At the time, I’d been in Europe for about a week and yodeling and oompah music had far outdistanced British and American classic rock hits in terms of radio play. At the time I was overjoyed to hear anything familiar. Anything with a guitar or two. (I’ve got a similar affection for the Doors’ “Alabama Song,” for what it’s worth.)
While the lyrics to this one are, um, out there, it still brings back a really pleasant memory for yours truly. And here’s hoping you all create some wonderful Boxing Day memories for yourselves today.
“Well I’m not dumb, but I can’t understand why she walked like a woman and talked like a man.”
