MIDNIGHT OF THE CENTURY WEEK DAY TWO: THE FRANK BLACK CHRISTMAS SONG!

Well I hope you are enjoying BackToFrankBlack's little seasonal celebration as we spend a week in the company of season two's wonderful festive outing, The Midnight of The Century. What Christmas would be complete without Christmas music and whilst you are no doubt growing weary of the same old jingles over and over again then allow me to introduce a new carol for the hymn book, a Christmas song Millennium style.

Now some of you may remember Steve Katzenmoyer from a previous entry in which he shared a superb little ditty he had written about Frank Black which, officially became our campaign anthem. I ran the idea by Steve of creating a Millennium Christmas Song, thinking this was an all but impossible request, and being the talented musician he is, he rose to the challenge. Below you can hear the results: The Frank Black Christmas Song.



Now it may not be lost on you that there's more than a little flavour of Bobby Darin in the track and this was intentional as a homage to Frank Black's beloved entertainer and having now heard it I am sure you will agree with me that Steve has created something every Millennium fan should add to their playlist at Christmas. To help you do just that, simply click on Frank's Christmas Tree to be taken to a download link so that you can enjoy this song at your leisure.

So join with me in wishing Steven a very Merry Christmas and a truly Happy New Year and please share your thoughts with him about his work. I know how much the people who contribute to this campaign value your insights and comments. Enjoy the rest of the week!

Good going Steven. A very professional effort and I never thought anyone would write a Millennium Christmas song ten years after the end of the show. Still going as strong as ever thanks to the dedication shown here. Well done.

Steven, that was very nice. I enjoyed this one even more than the other one.

There's a little bit of Frank Zappa, me thinks, in there as well.

Thanks for this fun song, Steven.

Merry Christmas from Iceland!

A nice harmony with the background singers, reminding me of The Beach Boys. I enjoyed that song. Top marks!
