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.

3. White Christmas - Bing Crosby

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:

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.
