……  a little Christmassy insight

Ok ….a little festive insight into this particular blogger this time …..

Top 3 Christmas songs ……now the first 2’s lyrics might seem a little bleak at first listen …but both have a positive message really depending how you take it …..and BOTH have cracking music:):):):):):):)

No 3 ….’I believe in Father Christmas’ Greg Lake ……carries a message about the ‘commercialisation’ of Christmas

No 2 …’Fairytale of New York’ The Pogues and Kirsty McKoll …..a couple of migrants having a row on Christmas Eve ….but still together and enjoying a ‘slow dance’ at the end of the original film clip …..also I LOVED The Pogues back in the day ….saw them live …the atmosphere was a kind of ‘Punk Kaylee’ ……for all Shane McGowens drug and alcohol addictions he SOMEHOW created magic with his band in that room:D:D:D ……..AND if you’ve never been to an Irish Kaylee ( Not sure I’m spelling it right ….think it’s Celhi or something) ANYWAY …..they’re fabulous ….DEFINATELY worth adding to the ‘bucket list’

No 1 ……RIGHT this one deserves a big build up …..NUMBER ONE FAVORITE ALL TIME CHRISTMAS SONG …………IS …………drum roll …….Tan tarra DaaaaaaaaH!!!!

‘THE POWER OF LOVE’ Frankie goes to Hollywood

BUT ….if you REALLY want to make your spine tingle ….check out the beautiful ‘Gabrielle Alpin’s version on YouTube ……..words can’t describe it:):):):):):):)

Oh …..and I must add ‘Away in a Manger’ sung by primary school children during their ‘Nativity Play’ …..ok ….so mine have left primary school now….I had a ‘king’ and a ‘shepherd’ respectively:D:D:D …..but it doesn’t matter …..it can be any kids at any nativity singing this and I always have to get out the tissues:D:D:D

My boys always say to me if they know we’re going to watch something with potential to be a little emotional ……’Mum ….have you got your tissues?’……funnily enough they don’t seem too bothered by my occaisional emotional displays other than to laugh their heads off and say …….’Uh oh …….Mum’s off AGAIN’:D:D:D
