    Paul McCartney in disguise. 😉

    And an instrumental you may have heard a bit of in the last few minutes. 😉

    I think it is hard to beat a good rendition of “carol of the bells” to bring a sense of a mythical traditional happy christmas.

    I avoid them tbh. But when Shane sings ‘It was Christmas eve babe, in the drunk tank’ I can’t help but smile. Such a great line and the perfect voice for it.

    For very personal reasons, my favourite Christmas song is Mariah Carey.

    I’m so sorry.

    “We kissed on the corner and danced through the night” genuinely, and for no good reason I can think of, brings a tear to my eye. But then, I just listened to the start of Mogwai’s beautiful Christmas Song and that just did the same, so maybe that’s just me. 🙂

    Love this –

    I like an upbeat christmas song so it is either

    Elvis – Santa bring my baby back to me
    https://youtu.be/kZdQ0x_1WSo

    or Bob Dylan – Must be santa

    Every Christmas Eve I end up dreaming
    She’ll kiss me awake
    But when morning comes
    I’m just the fool who repeats his mistake
    In the year since she left me
    My wish list has remained the same
    If I can’t have her back
    Please allow me to forget her name

    I like setting Alexa to play Dominick the Donkey and I want a hippopotamus for Christmas at random times through the day.

    And not just in the lead up to Christmas!

    Mid rehearsals for half a dozen Christmas concerts ranging from – drunken carol rampage on a train Huddersfield to sSouth Yorks and back via a concert in a pub, to a Church Choir carol service, with a Male Voice Choir and a professional singing group (The Mastersingers) joint concert and three other pub carol-singing events, I may be a bit jaded on favourites. However, I found this last year and a couple of us decided Adrienne would look pretty good in a cassock:

    A Very Special Christmas Volume 1 starts the Christmas music chez Sandwich after the December birthdays are done. The kids (32 and 30!) would ask for it every year from around age 4.
    This is bittersweet

    The Low song is from their Xmas CD

    I think that song is great but the rest is mostly okay
