A few of us began knocking ideas about for Christmas specials and it was really nice to hear Sam and Mark suggesting ones they wanted to write. I’ve been wanting to write this exploratory piece for a while, ever since Nathan’s review of Pink Floyd’s The Piper at the Gates of Dawn actually. Initially I thought the subject of mental health wasn’t appropriate for Christmas but it’s probably far more apt to run a piece about this now rather than at any other time of the year.
The end of 2017 is almost on the horizon, which means one thing: Christmas is officially here. I always get happy around this time of year because there’s the opportunity to spend at least one day with your family. One of the reasons why everyone should fully embrace this wonderful holiday is that it gives you the excuse to scroll through your music collection and play some of the best Christmas songs ever.
