So now we’re in December, we can fully enjoy the festive music and dig out the back catalogue of Christmas songs on dusty CD’s (or via spotify/google music/iMusic, which ever takes your fancy).
My favourite Christmas song, is definitely Little Drummer Boy-obviously partly because of David Bowie, but also because Bing Crosby really reminds me of my Grandfather. He doesn’t look like him or even sound like him, something just reminds me of him-maybe its a generational thing.
I asked some of my blogger friends their favourite Christmas Songs.
Zoe from Mummy and Liss Blog chose All I Want For Christmas by Mariah Carey. She loves a cheesy song and sings it to her partner every year. Its also a good song to boogie too in your pjs!
Sarah from Boo Roo and Tigger Too chose Let It Snow by Dean Martin. She loves the idea of snuggling up with loved ones whilst the snow falls.
Jodie from Maidenhead Mum chose Last Christmas by Wham. She says that you just can’t help get all the lovely festive feelings when you hear it!
Samantha from Stressy Mama chose Merry Christmas Everyone by Shakin’ Stevens. She is a massive fan of Christmas songs but this one has always been her favourite. It is really cheesy, and the video even more so, but as soon as she hears it, it instantly cheers her up and makes her feel festive. It’s a really fun song and the lyrics perfectly describe what fun Christmas should be like. No stressing about anything, and everyone just has a very merry Christmas.
Beth from Twinderelmo chose Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty McColl. It reminds her of being younger, driving round with her Dad dropping off presents, as he had it on CD. She thinks it’s the best non-cheese Christmas song ever.
Amy from Very Much So chose Driving Home For Christmas by Chris Rea. She said that it’s the best song for filling her with excitement and anticipation for Christmas. It’s also the one her and her family would all sing in the car when she was little.
Sinead from Sinead Latham chose Christmas Time by The Darkness. Hit those high notes!
Jaymee from The Mum Diaries chose When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney (one of my Daughters favourites from nursery)! Jaymee’s boys sing it all of the time, and she loves hearing them sing!
Emma from Ready Freddie Go chose Step Into Christmas by Elton John. It reminds her of being little and eating Christmas dinner at her own little table and chairs.
Suzy at Our Bucket List Lives chose White Christmas by Bing Crosby. Such a classic. It always puts a smile on her face and she never gets tired of hearing it.
