Video: Christmas At Pound£and – Mark Handley

On EILE’s Saturday morning music slot, we are happy to feature UK singer-songwriter, Mark Handley, who has just re-released his Christmas satirical song, Christmas at Pound£land, whose message will resonate with many people at this time, not only across the UK, but also in Ireland because of the homeless situation.

“You know you’ve been Scrooged” sings Mark Handley here on what might well be his very own “Christmas Carol”… “it’s the birth of our Lord at the price you can afford”

Mark, who hails from Portsmouth, has an eclectic taste in music, which comes out in his own projects, from Rock to Reggae, Folk to Country and Blues etc., with acerbic lyrics in this case wrapped up in an addictive instrumental and chorus line, that will have you singing along by the second chorus. We like it, hope you do too!

(For another amusing song of Mark’s, with clever lyrics, Girlfriend Wanted gives another flavour of his songwriting, sounding perhaps like a cross between Chas & Dave and Nick Drake).
