Winter is freezing time, teasing time and squeezing time
It is the final countdown to the dreaded Festering Season, and still a whole week in work to go...
Let's get ourselves in the mood to get out there - in the full and certain knowledge that all week the shops will be rammed with panicked faces, there'll be queues everywhere, shelves will be cleared of all mince pies (good! - they are horrid) and tinsel, zillions of overpriced box sets of scent'n'soap will be lying damaged on the floor of Superdrug, and on every tannoy Mariah Carey will be playing. I hate this time of year.
Never mind - on this Tacky Music Monday, we have something far better to ease our jingling nerves (see what I did there?) - it's yesterday's centenarian Miss Betty Grable and her Winter Show!
