I don’t know about you but for me this year has really just flown by and some of it seems to have escaped me. With a traumatic start to the year I honestly didn’t know where I would end up, but as we approach the final hurdle I can safely say – I have survived. Just about!
As it is the first day of December I can’t think of a better reason to blast out some of my favourite Christmas songs! (Even though I have been secretly playing them as soon as Halloween was over!). There are many songs out there that tug on the heartstrings but they also bring about an infinite amount of joy so with that in mind . . .
This is one of the prime examples that really does catch you at the back of your throat and tug on those heart strings. However, you cannot deny that you know the words and belt it out over and over before the month is out. This classic has been on my playlist for many years and will continue to be for many more.
Another absolute belter of a tune that I am sure you have all be acquainted with in pubs, clubs and even shops recently. Mariah is one of those that can hit higher notes than even dogs can hear so I though in a bid to clean out those pipes and tune in those ears this was the perfect second song for my list.
There are a million reasons for picking this song but the main one is because it is just so bloody lovely. One of friends (colleagues!) loves this song and if she is getting in the car to keep her quiet I stick this on full blast – it never works because she likes to do her own rendition. Moving on!
Last year my dad sat at his computer and started playing this over and over. Not only was the original one of his favourites but he loved the composition of this cover and just couldn’t stop playing it. This song will be on my list for a very long time if not forever.
