There IS actually ONE Christmas song I LOVE.....

"My Christmas Card To You" - The Partridge Family. A very beautiful song!

EDIT: I DID think of another one... the barking dogs Jingle Bells! Always makes me smile! smile

When my son was a wee thing I'd wake him up in the morning by putting this on the living room hi-fi.
He'd come running into the room giggling his head off.
Great old times.

Yes, I'm clearly exceeding the 5 limit, but I hope I will be forgiven.

This one is near and dear to my heart and always will be. No joke.

Crosby said of Bowie: "clean-cut kid and a real fine asset to the show. He sings well, has a great voice and reads lines well."
big grin

As much as I disliked Bowie, I do enjoy the song.

I adore GROWN UP CHRISTMAS LIST. While I like the Amy Grant version, I think Barbara Streisand’s version is the best. Being an old softy, I always tear up at the words, “No more lives torn apart.” (Plus no more wars and everyone would have a friend.) The melody is gorgeous.





I also like her version of ONE GOD.



Other favorites are O Holy Night, Ave Maria, and various songs from Amahl and the Night Visitors.

Obviously I posted this in the wrong place so here it is:



For true Brits there are only two that really matter: I wish it Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard, and Merry Christmas Everybody by Slade.

END OF!

SOOOOOO....
I "googled" Roy Wood and I saw listed in his discography the song "My Christmas Card To You". I thought, "Wow! He covered one of The Partridge Family songs!, and clicked on it.... wasn't even CLOSE, but WOW! What a TERRIFIC, WONDERFUL SONG!
....and heah 'tis:

Alright...it's been EXACTLY one year since I discovered this wonderful, WONDERFUL song! However, I STILL don't know who that guy singing is! I'm talking about the guy with the glasses and scarf and top hat! Could someone please tell me? I've googled it, and can't find a thing!

Dang, I was excited to see Roy Wood, but it's not.
But it's a damn good homage to Roy's style.
Very "Angel Fingers"-esque.

Hey thanks for that. It's great. I'm quite a fan of ELO and Roy Wood's various things, and I was a kid when Wizzard were in the charts and on SOOOOOOOO many editions of Top of the Pops. Never heard of this song before so it was a real treat to see and hear it. A few very well known celeb faces there for most Brits, including Slade's Dave Hill, Mike Reid of course on lead vocal and 'Diddy' David Hamilton.

I see Roy indeed had a hand in it and it's a pretty good variation on his classic Angel Fingers.
