Hello again. First things first, Merry Christmas. This time of year is traditionally when everyone gets together, eats too much, drinks too much and ends up arguing over who does the washing up (among other things) and I thought it might be a good distraction for me and maybe for you to have something else to do.
As it was last year, the songs over the next twelve days will not be particularly festive. This is mostly because I’m a grumpy git, but also because I have yet to hear any christmas songs that I have genuinely enjoyed. (If you know of any good ones please do let me know)
So here we go. Twelve days, twelve songs. New, old, ones we’ve liked over the past year and some from artists we’re looking forward to hearing more from over the next year.
To kick it off it’s a beautiful classic from Nina Simone. It’s not a Christmas song by any stretch, but it’s got all the right messages. And more importantly, it’s superb! Happy Holidays
