I wanted to post about my best Christmas songs list because today I'm listening to all the Christmas songs thanks to jekesta
's post, and also because it's warm and muggy and raining very hard, which is always what happens shortly before Christmas. The rain and the waterlogged garden and the washing not getting dry are very characteristic of this time of year.Wizzard
yay! Straight off jekesta
's list because it's lovely. No slight intended on Slade, of course.Boney M
's Mary's Boy Child is one of the most memorable off the Christmas songs tape we had when I was small. It also had Snoopy's Christmas, Anne Murray's Silent Night and a truly atrocious cheesy Rudolph.Chris Rea
, whose name I didn't know before looking up the video. I'm not sure what the line "top to toe in tailbacks" means but it might be to do with snapping the ends off beans for Christmas dinner.Cliff Richard
who is sort of like tinsel and the Virgin Mary in Christmassy relevance; couldn't have Christmas without him and that's why I couldn't choose which song to put in.QUEEN!
<3Bing Crosby and David Bowie
... how is it that their voices sound so good together? Especially since one is in a grandpa cardy and the other is from another planet.
