A few years ago, I was introduced to a novelty Xmas song, entitled "Dominic(k) the Donkey". It was so bad, it was good. Actually, no it wasn't good. It was "catchy", that's all I'll say about it.

Whilst rummaging through a box of CDs that honestly should have been buried in a landfill many years ago, I found this. It's one of those horrible cheaply made CDs, mass produced in Europe. No liner notes, no credits, and the ominous words "Digitally Remastered" sticking out from under the sticker. I'm not sure if it ever had a booklet, or any proper copyright info. It came in a double CD case, when it barely needed one CD, checking in at under 22 minutes in length.

Still, 50p. I've left more money in the vending machine at work. If it was shit, at least I'd have a spare double-CD case - I'm in desperate need of those.

After a quick play of it, I can confirm that, at some point in its life, this was the original recording. Unfortunately, for the "digital remaster", they've added an awful reverb effect.

During typing this, I thought I'd have a check on Wikipedia, to find out any information I can. I'm amazed to find that "dominick The Donkey" was re-released in 2011, and made #3 on the UK singles chart. Mind. Blown.
