/ Yay.... Christmas music time
Started 15 minutes into December.
I am on shift though..
What Christmas music is worth a punt?
Oh god help me.
Hand me a rope.
Low - Just Like Christmas
Just chilin in the work's van listening to Dave Koz and Friends Christmas album. It's my little Oasis of calm on a night of the usual weekend in Blackpool.
Tickles me every time.
What you doing up at this ungodly hour?
Doesn't matter I can nap tomorrow if I need to. Been awake since 4am. It's just one of those things.
Christmas Wrapping-The Waitresses. I could listen to this on repeat for the whole of December. Its cheesy as f**k but I love it.
Etherea Vocal Ensemble has produced an album 'Ceremony of Carols' complete with harp accompaniment - exquisite
All the same ones that everyone wrote on this thread last year and in 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007
I've always loved this, and also the fact that Britten composed it during a transatlantic ship voyage. By pure coincidence, we sang it at an amateur choir concert in Baslow in 1976 and heard the news just before that Britten had died that day. Was hard to sing that evening.
You can't beat PMJ, and I have their Christmas Album
Halsway Carol is an interesting composition in that it has attracted people posting versions on all sorts of devices and it's quite catchy. Its composer sounds interesting : he seems to be working as a cabinet maker or similar now but has recorded and performed with Plant and Page ( hurdy gurdy, naturally, the instrument the carol was designed for I suspect).
And being a secular carol, it might pass the UKC litmus test.
Many years ago the shop I was working in played Christmas music including Dolly Partons Christmas classics, two of my hates are country music and christmas songs the combination nearly gave me toothache. It was my job to lock up and so I sabotaged the cassette just a little nick on the tape with scissors.The following it was turned on and destroyed the tape and player, happiness!
Brilliant - I mark the start of Christmas by my first hearing of this tune on the radio - to date I am still waiting for the Waitresses.
On a different note Must be Santa by Bob Dylan rarely gets a play but I love it.
