The Advent of Goody

Local singer-songwriter David Goody is no stranger to a Christmas song having provided bizarre festive cheer each year since the 2016 release of Spon End Santa (featuring a video cameo by Specials bassist Horace Panter), however this year's lockdown has sent him into overdrive. Instead of releasing a Christmas single, for 2020 he is unveiling the "Advent of Goody". This will comprise 24 original Christmas songs shared on 24 consecutive days as a musical countdown to yule.

The musical advent calendar will feature Coventry classics such as "Spon End Santa", "Rudy The 2-Tone Reindeer" and "The Elves Of Earlsdon"as well as some COVID spins on festive faves. It's a bad year for Chris Rea as lockdown means he's not going anywhere, so David has updated his "Driving Home For Xmas" to "Staying Home For Xmas". Meanwhile Tiffany's "I Think We're Alone Now" has taken on new resonance and becomes "I Think We're At Home Now (For Xmas)". The seemingly endless US Election will also make an appearance in the John & Yoko inspired "Happy Xmas (Election Is Over)".

Finally, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without everyone's favourite feel good festive film - 'Die Hard'. David has updated 9 festive classics to have a Die Hard theme including "Hans Gruber Is Coming To Town", "John McClane's Winter Wonderland" and "Have Yourself A Yippie-Ki-Yay Christmas". 'Die Hard' writer Steve E De Souza has signalled his approval of these via Twitter (even if Bruce Willis still claims 'Die Hard' isn't a Christmas film). David says of the project "I like to think of myself as Coventry's novelty song version of Michael Buble and this year I'm pulling out all the stops. 2020 has been a crazy year and I'm inviting people to end in the most strangest way possible with a series of absurdly silly Christmas songs to take your mind off lockdown".

The songs will be shared via:
