BuzzJack Music Forum _ Spice Girls and Solo _ Do you think 2 Become 1 is a Christmas Song?

Posted by: zenon Dec 24 2017, 05:31 PM

So do you class the 1996 Christmas Number 1 as a Christmas song even though it's really about sex?

No, not at all. Same with The Power Of Love & Stay Another Day.

No it isn't a Christmas song I don't think.

The Power Of Love could be interpreted as having a religious theme though.

No it isnít but it was Christmas no.1 and reminds me of Christmas.

It does remind a me a little of Christmas too when I listen to it because of that fact.

Forgot to mention that the winter coats and an ice rink in the video could be attributed to it being a Christmas song.

I would class it as an "Unconventional" Christmas song

Posted by: Dobservance Dec 24 2017, 06:36 PM

So then Robbie Williams' She's The One is therefore a Christmas song due to prominently featuring an ice rink tongue.gif

I consider them xmas songs because I only ever hear them in December in the radio even if they don't sing about xmas! Perfect will be the same from this year now I would say!

nah It's not a christmas song but it does have a christmassy sort of vibe, like Stay Another Day, probs just cus of it being played at christmas

I wouldn't consider it a Christmas song in the strictest of senses, but for reasons already mentioned (Christmas #1, winter themed video & played more at this time of year) it makes me think of Christmas! I include 2 Become 1 (and their other 2 Christmas #1s) in my Christmas play list.

Yeh so do I!

It's like older carols such as In the Bleak Mid Winter - you could say aren't Christmas songs but they are always focused and heard in December!

I wouldn't class it as a 'Christmas song' per sť but I do associate it with Christmas at the same time if that makes sense laugh.gif The song was a Christmas #1 for the Spice Girls, but they had three of those, so I guess the wintery video is a reason also. Although... 'Goodbye' has one too, so maybe this song housing more warm and romantic lyrics also plays a part, as opposed to a farewell song. I see it a fair bit on the music channels each December and hear it a bit on the radio as well, so I will forever have a bit of a festive connection to '2 Become 1'. But the song itself isn't thematically about Christmas (instead safe sex) so I wouldn't file it as a Christmas song. No mention of the day itself, santa, jingle bells, Christmas trees... nothing. Much like 'Too Lost In You' by Sugababes which is another girlgroup song that isn't specifically about the festive season, but that music channels play at this time of year.

A quick mention of Christmas doesn't qualify for me btw, otherwise you could say Little Mix - 'Move' was a Christmas song ("feeling like it's my birthday, like Christmas day came early" laugh.gif) - just a song that is thematically festive throughout.

This!!

A beautiful song and very evocative of Christmas, but just like East17, or Die Hard, 'twas NOT a song just before Christmas.

Howeverrrr, like Lily Allen, Gabrielle Aplin, etc, I usually only play it around Xmas time...

Maybe a pseudo-Christmas song then...
