    Thanks for that James. Nice to see the podcast up nice and early too. Mwah!

    I really like this song, seriously. This really gets the end-of-holiday blues, how it is unfair, but how you already start looking forward to christmas. And the pedal steel guitar is just the perfect addition.
    One of Adam's best ones, in my opinion. Thanks!

    Yes this is a brilliant song. I love the epic vocals!

    Ooo ta James!
    What did YOU do while they were on holiday? (Other than work that is.)

    Hey of course we read this blog! Adam kept the Design for Life programme very quiet on Saturday but it must be him! Come on Adam, put us out of our misery!

    My favourite song by Adam so far. Love the Ant n Dec ending. Too random.

  • Comment number 8.

    Nice as holidays!

    The Holiday Song is definitely up there with one of the best songs - the production values are improving every time and this song has a real emotional truth to it. Well done!
    I've really enjoyed being able to download the songs, its great to be able to have them all for myself. However there is one song that I was hoping would be re-visited over the summer, I think it was a Glastonbury themed song by Adam (?). Its a bit vague I know, but I remember struggling to contain my guffawing as I heard it on the podcast, walking down a crowded street in central London. Anyone remember this song?

    Awake in the middle of the night with a song stuck in my head...what is it...really annoying....but I think I like it.....something from the 80's?....something by the Associates, maybe...no.....bloody hell....how does it go again?...can't gte back to sleep until I work out what it is...something about France and pants?....oh yes, it's this.

    Any chance of any more past Song wars songs being posted so I can download them as MP3s? Has been great to have all the ones that were posted on my phone and ipod and listen to them while im walking around :D..... could do with some more though??

    Also, i may have dreamed this but i swear you guys said you were joining forces to make a wedding song for a listener a while ago. Did this happen? Did i miss it? Could you pleeeeeeease post it if it does exist.

    The coming back from holiday blues is a gem. I just wanted to post to say I still enjoy listening to it. Thank you for the music!

    Just got back from holiday myself and HAD to download this to listen to on my way to work tomorrow morning. Shows how enduring Adam's sublime effort is...

    I'm having the about-to-go-on-holiday happies at the moment but I will be listening to this song again in a few weeks as well...
