As Digital Classic is a tech and music blog, I have to add some of my favourite Christmas songs.
Christmas songs help me get into the festive spirit, and although I don’t get as many gifts as I used to, but I have a few festive trips planned for the children to look forward to.
Every Christmas my sister, the children and I love listening to Christmas songs and watching our favourite Christmas movies.
Here are my all-time favourite Christmas songs:
1: Walking in the Air
I received the Snowman story on tape for Christmas one year when I was little and Walking in the air always reminds me of that Christmas when I used to play the tape and listen to the story and the song.
2: Happy Xmas War is over
John Lennon was one of the most talented musicians that have ever lived. This song is very political and has a catchy tune.
3: The fairytale of New York
This song is a reminder of Kirsty MacColl in her early days; her voice sounds angelic.
4: O Holy Night
Mariah Carey really hits the high notes on this song. I think it’s one of the best cover versions of a Christmas song I have ever heard.
5: Silent Night
I love both Mariah Carey’s and Michael Bubble’s versions of the song. It’s also my favourite Christmas song that I play on guitar.
6: Do they know it’s Christmas?
When the stars of the 1980s got together to record this in November 1984 for charity, this was a great idea for what was a good cause at the time. As a child, I would listen to this album on my Dad’s record player every Christmas. Unfortunately, recent attempts in 1989, 2004 and 2014 to recreate the Band-Aid magic doesn’t quite give the song the same feel.
7: Merry Christmas Everybody
This reminds me of a Christmas dancing show I was performing in, and I heard this song. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take part in the dance to this song because it was for those who took Modern dance and I did Ballet, Tap and Stage.
8: It’s the most wonderful time of the year
This song reminds me of one of my favourite Christmas movies, Home Alone 2.
9: Jingle Bell Rock
Jingle Bell Rock is one of the Christmas song’s that was played in Home Alone 2.
10: Santa Claus is coming to town
This is one of those Christmas songs that gets stuck in your head. We had musical Christmas tree lights on the tree when I was younger, and this song was one of the songs that played.
