    So, you rascal, you fulfilled my request after all! (in a roundabout way) 🙂

    Thanks SO much Paul. This is a personal favorite (along with that Crackers International postcard pack edition).

    I said it elsewhere, but will say it again. Happy/Merry Christmas and a joyous new year!

    May all the crackles and pops you hear be from the Yule log and not the turntable! 🙂

    Erasure is such a magical band. I have their new “Snow Globe” limited edition CD with reduxs of these two songs. Erasure’s music is so sparkling and shimmery, perfect for the Holiday Season. Thanks Paul for such a gift of the original promo. You’re magical!
