HAPPY CHRISTMAS DEAR READERS (Part 2)
This was a bugger to sort out for you as the a-side to this 12" single is a double-grooved record, which means you've got to muck about with it a bit to make sure you get both versions of the song as available on the vinyl:-
mp3 : Sugarcubes - Birthday (Christmas Eve)
mp3 : Sugarcubes - Birthday (Christmas Day)
Now these might very well be the wrong way round. I've never been sure which is which - I'm basing it on the fact that 'Eve' is listed before 'Day' and is the one the needle slips easiest into.
The b-side is a lot easier:-
mp3 : Sugarcubes - Birthday (Christmas Present)
mp3 : Sugracubes - Petrol (live)
Unsurprisingly, the sleeve gives a big thank you to Jim and William Reid.
And here's the promo of the single version:-
And finally.....the original and best version:-
mp3 : Sugarcubes - Birthday (Icelandic version)
