JYC 2011 - December 13th: Christmas Tunes.

The best thing about JYC blogging. I don't just get to write about my favourite Christmas tunes this year. I can share them :) 

So, if you fancy getting into the festive spirit with my, crank up the PC speakers and have at it....

My all time FAVE Christmas tune:

LOVE this song :)

Completely useless factoid to accompany the song... the New York Police Department doesn't have a choir... it has a Pipe and Drum band, who were featured in the video. They are not in fact playing "Galway Bay" however because they didn't know it. They're playing something else and the speed was adjusted to fit the beat :)

On the other side of the festive tunage coin we have my all time favourite Christmas Carol (i.e. a traditional Christmas song, not a pop song). Always loving this version of God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by the awesome Annie Lennox. The music on this track is amazing:

The CD that this song comes from is completely fabulous (even Grace loves it). It's called "A Christmas Cornucopia" (how cool is that title?) and I highly recommend it for injecting some Christmas spirit.

That was easy :)
