I know I said no posting for a while. But… I am a simple girl with simple pleasures. Skippy on vinyl. One more must have record down. I wish it was the original Columbia recording instead of the Sundaze re-release, but I like my kidneys.
I’ve been obsessed with Christmas music since I was forced to play an angel every year in the Nativity play. My hyper dramatic show off side wanted to be the Virgin Mary. She was the star until the doll playing Jesus showed up. The angels would all stand near the altar and sing “Away in … More Top Ten Holiday Season Songs of All Time
Because it’s December, because it’s the holidays, and because it is one of the greatest Christmas songs ever. Because King Crimson was the best prog rock band in history, because he could play, because ELP could do wonders with just three men. Farewell, Greg Lake.

I’m giving you four more! First, everyone needs a little Bing in their life: Second, everyone must have some Frank: Third, I can’t live without some Ramones: And sorry, Bob Geldof, but I still love this last song.

To match my mood today, I’ve decide my pick would be this classic. The song is sung by the late Thurl Ravenscroft, aka the voice of Tony the Tiger. Totally awesome.
More British glam rock. Or it could be circus clowns who somehow ended up on Top of the Pops. I’m not really sure. But it’s Wizzard with “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday”. Enjoy.
I’m three days behind my daily list (love life). My kids and I have decorated our tree and began eating the chocolate out of the advent calendars. And the girls are listening to the Glee Christmas album with shrieks of delight. So, I’m here to give the next three songs and catch up to the … More Christmas Countdown: The Christmas Music List
Ah, Christmas. I love Christmas music. Yeah, you don’t look all that shocked by that statement. This year I’ll be playing you some of my favourite Christmas songs ever. Some of them reflect the only time I ever actually like going to Church was at Christmas, or that I love Slade, or that I really … More Christmas Countdown: The Christmas Music List
