I don’t like Christmas music. But I do like having days when you’re expected not to work, but instead to eat stuff and goof off! And Christmas totally counts. So, in honor of Christmas—and all the holidays—I thought I’d build today’s Friday Genius Ten off Blur’s “Bank Holiday”, a legitimately fucking awesome song. Leave your picks in comments, or talk about whatever you like. Merry Christmas!

Original song: “Bank Holiday” by Blur

1) “Mis-shapes” by Pulp
2) “Animal Nitrate” by Suede
3) “Bye Bye Bad Man” by The Stone Roses
4) “Road To Ruin” by The Libertines
5) “Loose Fit” by the Happy Mondays
6) “Caroline, Yes” by the Kaiser Chiefs
7) “I Started Something I Couldn’t Finish” by The Smiths
8) “Beat Surrender” by The Jam
9) “Forgotten Works” by The Klaxons
10) “Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time” by Jarvis Cocker

This doesn’t look comfortable, but my cats love it.
