6 Christmas songs: blogmas 16 December

Well, here we are, just over a week to go to Christmas!  The sun is out, and we came home from work and sat outside with a cold drink (and maybe a little bowl of crisps…).  Anyway, it’s time to try to pick some seasonal music.  What an impossible task that proved to be….should I include ‘classics’ like Wham or Slade?  (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, click on the links…..).  Should I only pick carols?  Well, as ever, it is a total mix.  So here we go….

Hark the Herald Angels Sing –  possibly my favourite Christmas carol.  Just have to sing along (and do the descant).

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – my favorite Christmas album is from She and Him and I love their version of this classic song.  Perfect combination.

Lulajze Jezuniu – the classic Polish carol sung by the wonderful Anna Maria Jopek with Pat Metheny.

The Christmas Song – actually, just an excuse to post something by Ella Fitzgerald!

Santa Baby with the late, great Eartha Kitt.  A slightly different version of this was recently performed my MP Marama Fox in the New Zealand Parliament.

Just D with Jul igen from the 1990s.  It’s not exactly full of Christmas cheer despite the jolly tune!

So, there you have it.  Time to relax and enjoy the weekend.
