Today I’m sharing “Last Christmas” by Wham. Several years ago, when I worked at Tim Hortons, one of my coworkers used to sing “Last Christmas” for the whole Christmas season. She only knew a handful of lines and she muffed one every time but she sang with joy and enthusiasm.
This is one of my favourite Christmas carols although, ironically I didn’t know it’s name. I thought it was called “Christmas in 3/4 Time” and it’s actually called “The Christmas Waltz”. I found it by searching “Christmas in 3/4 Time” so I’m obviously not the only one under that impression. This is Bing Crosby’s version, which I enjoy far more than Frank Sinatra’s version.
And I have another carol sung by Pentatonix. This one is Deck the Halls. I’m not decking my halls this year. My moving date is too close to Christmas and I’d have to put my tree on packed boxes, which would be interesting but not the look I’m going for. So, instead, I’ll listen to this…
This version of the Little Drummer Boy popped up in my news feed several years ago. Until then I’d never heard of Pentatonix before but I loved what I heard and went hunting for more songs. I hope you enjoy this version as much as I do…
This song isn’t exactly a Christmas song but it mentions Christmas and was on at least one Christmas CD so that’s good enough for me. I hope you enjoy “River” as sung by Sarah McLachlan as much as I do!
Today’s song is on every Christmas CD I’ve ever had and, for me, I don’t think Christmas would be Christmas without at least hearing it once. Time for Pat a Pan by Mannheim Steamroller.
It’s thirty days until Christmas and I’m going to share a Christmas carol each day, just because I love music and Christmas and want to share 🙂
This first song is Marshmallow World as sung by Darlene Love. Enjoy!
