Song of the day: Mel & Kim- Rocking Around The Christmas Tree
With less than a week to go before it’s Christmas, I will today promote a Christmas song with a funny clip.
But first: U Can’t Touch This! I’ve been looking up some information on the song, and where is it? Here! U Can’t Touch This promotes MC Hammer as a rapper.
The whole song is based on a sample of Rick James’ Super Freak, but the lyrics are written by MC Hammer. He says that he’s magic, and that he can’t touch Rick James in the lyrics.
But, because of this, it is such a perfect song! It was a number one hit for MC Hammer and he won a Grammy with it.
Okay, enough about the song of yesterday, let’s move on to the song of today.
It’s actually a song for charity, for Comic Relief. The name of the singers are a parody on a sister act, and the original was recorded in 1958 by Brenda Lee.
Don’t know it yet? Here’s the answer:
Mel (Smith) & Kim (Wilde) with Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree!
Tomorrow two new songs, and after that we are going to have some nice Christmas songs…
