'MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY'
on 23 December 2014
Okay, the same tracks keep coming back on every issue, not a bad thing as many of the great Christmas songs
were recorded some while back, songs such as 'Happy Xmas' (War Is Over) by 'John Lennon' and the Plastic
Ono Band' 'Fairytale of New York' by 'The Pogues ft Kirsty McColl' 'I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday' by
'Wizzard' 'Merry Christmas Everybody' by 'Slade' and two versions of the charity number 'Do They Know It's Christmas'
by 'Band Aid' 'Mistletoe and Wine' by 'Cliff' 'Step Into Christmas' by 'Elton John' 'Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree'
by 'Brenda Lee' and 'Lonely This Christmas' from 'Mud' among many, just keep turning up in the charts this time of
year, and why not, they were indeed all 'Christmas - Classics'
One of my personal favourites, released during the 70's was 'Greg Lake's' - 'I Believe In Father Christmas'
This 3-CD Compilation contains nearly all the popular songs from down the years in truth including 'Bing Crosby's' classic
'White Christmas' (wouldn't be right to leave that one out on these Christmas releases in truth)
What is nice as an addition to the 'Pop' tracks such as some i have listed is the inclusion of some of the old favourites such
as the ever popular 'Silent Night' sung on this release by 'Sinead O'Connor' along with 'The Twelve Days Of Christmas'
sung by 'The Spinners' 'Walking In The Air' by 'Aled Jones' and ever popular 'Carol' 'Oh Holy Night' sung by 'Il Divo' along
with so many well thought of and fondly remembered Christmas Songs that many of us know so well.
